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.

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!
Fairfield Ludlowe High school has a lot of qualities that I think a lot of students take for granted. The majority of the teachers are passionate and very qualified for their jobs, we have resources available to the music and art department (like 3D printers!) that we're extrememly lucky to have, and we have a principal that is amazing and does his best to ensure the school is really serving the students in the best possible way.
