Fairfield Warde High School Reviews

It's a very welcoming, academic, respectful, dynamic, and ethical school - that's the Warde acronym! And it stands true. Faculty and staff do a great job at ensuring these qualities in the high school and enforcing rules. The rules are strict, but students still have so much freedom to be themselves in this school. The teachers only want the best for their students, and in the situation where a teacher is unreliable, guidance counselors are always another friendly face that students can turn to.

I liked the focus on improving the academic side of Fairfield Warde High School. For example, critical thinking started being emphasized a couple years ago. The clubs, activities, and facilities are also very advanced. We have a classroom that includes unique aspects such as white board tables, computer monitors that connect to your laptop, and smart-boards. This allows students to be creative in group work and flexible in learning styles and habits. Our school is passionate in expanding opportunities for students to learn in new ways and think critically.
After spending 4 years at Warde, I can say that as a college freshman I am thankful for those 4 years. I learned so much as a student and as a person. I made personal connections with many of my teachers and felt that I had adults in my life that I could go to for more then just my academic work. The arts programs in Fairfield are among some of the best in the state and being a part of the Warde Music department for 4 years proved that to me. Being able to perform in multiple choir and acappella groups gave me a well rounded academic and extra-curricular experience. I still go back to support my friends and my younger brother that is still in the department as an alum.
