Fairfield is a small town school great for people who want their kids to experience a safe, public school environment. The academics are A1, and the athletic program is just as great. The one thing that could change in Fairfield is the strictness on so many aspects of the school. Such as, dress code, student life and more.
The school does not seem very organized with communicating important events or dates and some teachers are excellent at explaining, while others expect you to know it. However sports and academic teams perform very well.
