Farmington Central High School Reviews
If your parents live and have always lived IN Farmington (not even one of the other towns like Yates City or Hanna City, but Farmington only,) and if your parents enjoy drinking and going on drinking vacations with other Farmington parents, then you'll be fine at this school. If your father is a washed-up Farmington, has-been sports 'star,' then you'll be fine at this school. If your parents works at the school and will let you take high school math when you're in junior high, when NO other child has ever been given this opportunity, you'll be fine at this school. If you are a current football 'star' and can therefore get away with cheating on a state-required test with ZERO punishment, you'll be fine at this school.
I feel like that there were many good things about Farmington and in some of my classes I graduated very prepared for college but others were lacking. I would rate the teachers and administration higher if the school could get its act together and find teachers that stay at the school and shut down the revolving door of new teachers.
When I was at Farmington Central High School, there were many great teachers. These teachers were people I felt I could go up to and talk to them about anything. There were problems with the consistency with how grades were done but all classes were fair.
