This high school is great! Teachers are great and the environment is amazing compared to the other towns high school. There is a good amount of diversity for being in Fairfield, yet there still needs to be more oppurtunities for those of minorities. All in all the school is great at offering options for their future and extra curriculars.

My high school offered me a wide range of academic and extracurricular opportunities. I was able to take advantage of advanced placement courses that helped enhance my learning of those subjects but also helped in creating effective studying strategies and developing critical thinking that will be applicable after high school. I participated in the music program playing an instrument for four years, in addition to also participating in sports teams. The school offered a variety of clubs and extracurriculars to fit various students' interests, cultures, or help us participate in the community outside of our high school.
I enjoyed my four years at Fairfield Warde High School because I think it provides excellent education with amazing teachers and has lots of diversity. There was no feeling of being an outcast at this school because of the wide range of student backgrounds and personalities which made the high school experience very comfortable. The things that I would like to see change are already in progress for next year. Warde has recently updated the classes a student can take in high school to further ready themselves for college such as a medical calculations class. Overall, Fairfield Warde is an outstanding high school and I would love to have my own children become educated there as well.
