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!
Review Farmington High School
I've only been at Farmington High School for a couple months, but I can tell you that it is one of the best schools out there. When I transferred here from Miss Porter's School, I was simply amazed by the genuine care and compassion demonstrated by each of my new teachers. They worked hard to catch me up to the rest of the class, and I established a seamless transition. I felt as though my teachers were really passionate about what they were teaching, and it was contagious! I have a 3.98 GPA, and I know I couldn't have done it without the immense support provided by the outstanding teachers and guidance counselors at Farmington High.
Bullying is not prominent in Farmington High School. It is neither cool or accepted to hurt someone emotionally or physically. There are clear consequences to bullying but these cases are not common because the student body recognizes that everyone is different. People mainly visit the nurse when returning physical forms for sports. Although, if you feel that something is wrong, she is a great resource. The physical education teachers are certified in QPR for suicide prevention and can act as advisors in life. The school psychologists are extremely friendly and easily approachable. Overall, the administration takes health and safety very seriously and are active in improving any flaws.
