Farmington High School put a large emphasis on high achieving academics and on their music department. I really loved being a part of both the choir and the orchestra, and the school has some amazing and involved teachers. It felt a little austere, as there was such a high amount of pressure put on doing well academically (it almost felt as if there was high grade inflation to achieve this.) As in most high schools, the school accumulates cliques by grade, and the lunch room design didn't really encourage anyone to remedy this. The library was also rather disappointing - there were less books than people.

First, there are many diverse types of clubs and organizations. Students can get involved in activities such as Model UN or Debate to improve their speaking abilities. There are also clubs that recognize sexual orientation such as Gay-Straight Alliance. Political clubs also exist such as Young Republicans or Young Democrats. There are also many community service opportunities through Interact- a club run by students to help the community. Of course, there are the sports that is cemented in high school spirit and pride. This is the easiest way to meet new people and make life long friends. Finally, student government is a popular club. Students who feel that they can give insight to administrators join this club to make a difference in the school and to improve any aspects that could be better. Go Indians!
It is a great school, with great academics and teachers. There are plenty of resources for every subject. There is a tutor for all five core classes during all periods and after school. They provide assistance and resources for those who are struggling or looking to do well on a test. The teachers are very helpful as well and teach engaging and fun lessons. The cafeteria provides many options for both breakfast and lunch that are delicious. The sports provide a great environment and a lot of fun. The only place for improvement would be the actual building, but it does not get in the way of the academics.
