I've been having a great experience at Fairfield High. At the beginning of the year I was struggling and just felt like quitting, but the administration was very accommodating and got me back on track. The teachers were also very helpful with believing in me and not just giving up. The school clubs and activities are amazing, there is really something for everyone. The school shows that they care very much about our safety and find ways to celebrate our diversity.

I really enjoyed that the teachers, staff, and faculty at Fairfield High School seemed to really care about each one of the students. The teachers didn't act as though they were there just to go to work, get a paycheck, and leave. They all seemed genuinely invested in helping their students learn and develop into functioning members of society.
As a student preparing for college, I knew very little about it. I was a part of the AVID program which, I felt, hurt me academically more than helped me. Back then, I was not sure which colleges I should have applied for, how I could have increase my chances of enrollment, where to apply for scholarships, etc. I had very little knowledge on how to prepare for my future. Fairfield High School was a very underfunded school which was why there were little resources offered. Still, the faculty and staff tried their best to educate and care for the students. My senior year, I distinctly remember the principal of the school being forced to resign due to "bullying" from the Fairfield-Suisun School District, because he tried to change the school for the better. Overall, my high school experience was less than exceptional for the reason that it did not have the resources that I needed as a student.
