Overall my experience wasn't that bad. The teachers I had were good and they did what they could to tech me the material. The one thing I did not like about the school was the facilities. Some parts of our school were brand new for example we recently had a new science wing built onto the building and our "21st Century Room", was built recently and supposedly had some of the newer technology to help learning. Then there were other parts of our school like the library, the rooms for our Project Lead the Way classes, and one that matters specifically to me the men's restrooms. The rooms are outdated and have many problems that the district seems to overlook and then pour money into other renovations, that in my mind, are not needed. One thing about the men's restrooms. They have no stall doors...

The things I liked the most at Fairfield High School are the teachers and activities. The teachers there are really supportive, friendly, and caring. The activities I was involved in created the best memories of my high school experience. The only thing I would change is the class options and preparation because there weren't many classes to choose from and not a lot of them prepare you for college.
Overall, I did not enjoy my experience. Some teachers are very lazy, and can be very rude. However, other teachers go above and beyond and are very lovely and helpful. I was not a fan of the administration either.
