Fairfield Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I have loved getting to know new friends and teachers. I also have loved how safe our school environment is. There isn't a lot of bullying, so that's a positive to Fairfield. Our teachers teach really well and all after school activity involvement are great! Many of us students, have excelled in a lot of what we do because our teachers are always willing to help. There are some really hard-working parents that are involved with helping and there are some who don't help at all. There are some lessons taught that shouldn't be taught in our school. I haven't liked the lessons where teachers have talked about politics too much. And though I said there isn't bullying, there is gossip from dramatic people. I also would love if seniors had better privileges to do things, because it's a nice reward from all the years of hard work.

Fairfield Junior/Senior High School is just alright. Over the past 5 years, they've lost and replaced over half of the Math Department and much of the English Department, which is a reflection of a lack of confidence in the administration. The school lunches are not great, but they have started to add fresh vegetable choices rather than canned ones. The teachers are the only really great thing about the school; for the most part the teachers have real passion for what they do and they really care about their students. The arts programs could use more funding, especially considering how successful it is. "Lesser" sports such as cheer could also use some more funding for better equipment. For example, when I cheered last year the mats were in awful condition and could have been considered a safety hazard. However, they have begun renovating the school, giving it a lot of cool new additions. The additions add a sense of pride to the school and a better learning environment.
I appreciate how the teachers care about their students' emotional health. Many students felt comfortable going to their teachers to discuss something that was bothering them at home, or with other students. Fairfield is also trying to focus on addressing the traumatic events in students' lives, so that they have the chance to live life to the fullest.
While the school didn't offer the selection of courses that I would prefer and is more agriculture-oriented, I enjoyed the science classes that I took here, too. I was especially fond of the Anatomy and Physiology class that I took my senior year, as it increased my interest in the the workings of the human body.
