As a parent in the Farmington school district, I am very proud to tell others where my children attend school. They have had excellent teachers at all levels and they feel support from the administration, who makes themselves available to students at all times. The athletic events are well attended and all programs are competitive, continually winning conference and district championships in several sports. My children have had the opportunity to participate in AP classes as well as dual enrollment in college courses. Our decision to choose Farmington is one we are very happy with. The class sizes and teacher-student ratios are wonderful. We just toured the new high school today and the commitment this school district has made to the students and this community by not asking for a mileage increase while building a state of the art facility is impressive. If you are looking for a new school district, you will be remiss if you do not seriously consider Farmington.

I love going to Farmington! I moved to Arkansas from Oklahoma in 4th grade and we chose Farmington because my parents heard so many good things about this school. I have made great friends, I love being on the cross country and track team for the high school and I feel like my classes are challenging and are preparing me for college. I hope to return to this area after I graduate from college. Great small town just minutes away from the University of Arkansas!
When I moved to Farmington 3 years ago I had resented going to school in the beginning. Once I started going, I had met a lot of people and suddenly, going to high school in Farmington did not seem so bad. All of the teachers are very reasonable and my classes aren't bad whatsoever. I enjoy going to a smaller school where everyone knows everyone. Our school doesn't deal with a lot of violence and or drugs like many other schools. They provide a lot of programs whether it be a Bible club, political club, or even the National Honor Society. I would recommend Farmington High School to anyone who is looking for something small.
