Fairfield Union High School has a lot of pros and cons. It is completely surrounded by corn fields and cow pastures. It is a very tight knit school and it is great to be a part of falcon country. Alothough all of this is true, Fairfield Union is not the best when it comes to sports. We aren’t successful in many sports and a lot of students have quit and/ or stopped playing for this reason. Getting better coaches I think will help up the system and improve the success within Fairfield Union.

Overall, I love Fairfield Union. It's not a large school, but the only problem that brings is less access to resources and money. We do fine with what we have, though. AP courses are available, and there are plenty of sports and clubs. If we had more resources we could have a lot more. The school is in a pretty rural area, so diversity is fairly low, but racist behavior is rare. Teachers are there to help you, and most do an excellent job, although some of their teaching styles aren't the best for everyone. Common school problems such as bullying and drugs occur, but are far from prevalent. Everything is kept clean and our school building is fairly new. Unfortunately, we do suffer from low quality cafeteria food like many other schools. School spirit depends on who you talk to, but it's good overall. All in all, it's a very good school, and I'm very glad I go here.
Fairfield Union High School would benefit greatly from a little more guidance and connection to the "real world" and what it means to exist there today, in modern life. Much of my education was based in the past and upon graduation, I quickly realized how LITTLE I actually knew. More specifically, I would like to see a better focus on taxes, what they are, and how to actually do them. I would also like to see more initiation around customer service development and interview skills, as a large majority of the graduating force will be going into the workforce immediately after high school. I feel this would better prepare students to take on the challenges of the real world while simultaneously preparing them to further their education beyond that of a high school diploma/GED.
