Farmington High School is an amazing school that teaches not only the academics, but also how to be a kind, organized and hard-working person. There are a lot of activities you can be involved in, many clubs, sports and voluntary work. There are many talented students and very knowledgable teachers who with a huge excitement share their knowledge and experiences with the students. I personaly was involved in theatre and I loved it so much! The school spirit is very cheerful and we all are one community who supports one another in every activity.

Loved all of my instructors! Farmington High School also prepared me well for a collegiate workload, especially in the essay writing department.
I like that Farmington high school is a little community where everyone knows each other. I also like how the community comes together to help each other in difficult times. I hope Farmington high will change their buildings because its old, and please its falling apart.The teachers are super understanding and will help you get through the school year. I can say that I have mire than two close relationships with the teachers at Farmington high school. The teachers that I am close with help me find my academic strength and weakness.
