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.

Before joining the school, we will have a shadow day to explore and understand the school which I think is a cool thing. Based on that, we can join or leave the school. The teachers are so helpful and cooperative. There is a lot of diversity, including Asians, Hispanics, Whites, and Blacks. This is just what I know, they're a lot more stuff to do in this school. They encourage every sport. The cost of cafeteria food is high.
I like Farmington High school, but the physical plant is very old and in total disrepair. The students, some of the faculty, the staff, that is what makes its 4/5* institution. We have so many opportunities here and os many teachers willing to help us achieve our goals. I feel very fortunate to be able to attend this school. The real negative is the actual school building, that coupled with our lack of a mascot makes us really not have any school spirit. That is what is bringing down the overall student morale.
