I love my high school! I have had a multitude of engaged, helpful, and highly educated teachers. My school offers so many programs and materials. They are very interested in students concerns. My only complaint is that the school can feel very competitive and the majority of students care more about good grades than learning.
Review Fairfield Ludlowe High School
At my four years at Ludlowe High School, I have made so many friends and made great memories. I have been able to excel my learning and understanding of many different subjects. I have also been able to get into many clubs to get involved with the school and the town. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. I have never not felt welcomed at my school and wouldn't want to go to high school anywhere else!
My experience at Fairfield Ludlowe High School has been great. The teachers are always offering help and support to students to clarify material. The academic standards are perfect preparing every student to be successful in college. Fairfield Ludlowe has provided me with great academics and athletics where I would not even think about attending a private high school. As a whole, the faculty and students are supported by the town of Fairfield at all of our home sports games. In return, as athletes and students, Fairfield Ludlowe always finds a way to give back to the needy and community. School spirit is never fades at athletic events and students have always enjoyed their four years with teachers who they connect with and make life long bonds with. Fairfield Ludlowe is a perfect high school acadeically and athletically preparing students to be successful in life while having fun doing what we love.
