Farmington High School is an incredible place to attend. Overall, my educational experience in Farmington has been very pleasant. The majority of the teachers I have had have been incredible. I feel that my learning experience has been outstanding through the years. Farmington School District was very welcoming to the idea of incorperating technology in our learning. We were one of the first districts to use iPads in our classrooms. Overall they have been a great success in enhancing our learning. Many other school followed in our footsteps and sent representatives to our school to see how the tech worked in the classroom. After this many schools in the area started using this technology like iPads in the classroom. My experience at Farmington High School has been great and i'm glad I was able to attend school here

I moved to this school going into my junior year, it was overwhelming at first due to the size. However, the staff and students were more than inviting. The technology is modern, and they pride themselves on providing kids with the best materials avalible. The teachers are very passionate and inspiring, always willing to help everyone. The ipads can tend to distract students, however, this falls on the shoulders of the students, not the staff, for time management is something everyone must learn for themselves. Farmington Highschool is a safe place, filled with wonderful staff, simple and effective layout of the building, and the newest technology.
My experience at Farmington High school has been great! At this school all students are provided with their own iPad to help expand the learning experience. I feel like this has really helped the school and made learning easier for the students. Also the teachers and staff at this school are very helpful and really care about the students.
