FHS is an excellent high school socially and academically. It has its benefits of college Readiness based on connecting specific assignments to classes and tasks that you will tend to receive from any college you attend too. It's a very safe high school with hall monitors around the school and a commendable administration to put the students of Farmington High School on the right track to graduate and to take on their future endeavors post-high school. FHS could work on its diversity, even though the school has shown a lot of improvement in the past year and also making school culture events and activities to make this high school one of the best years of a students life.
Like any public facility, it is up to the student to fulfill their desire to do well. FHS provides resources/classes to challenge students to prepare themselves for college through AP Classes/Dual Enrollment, however, it is also common for a student to be average if they do not take advantage of such opportunities.
