Farmington Central High School Reviews

Farmington has a heavy bias for sports and little appreciation for all the art department does for it. Academic based activities are given no recognition what so ever. Overall the academics are geared towards getting people through, not helping those would achieve get forward. Farmington also chooses to overwork its teachers and can never seem to keep the same roster of teachers for more than two years, the same goes for administration. The discipline of the students is not well handled either. Put this all together and a rather lackluster time is to be had by anyone with an interest in something other than sports.

The administration at this school is simply the boys club hanging out and running how they feel best despite critiques by many. However, the teachers truly care about the students and give their best efforts to provide a quality education to students despite the school being technologically behind.
Best experience of my life. Teachers, administrators and staff were always very helpful and helped where ever they could. Students were always supportive and helpful when at all possible
