The teachers do all they can to help each student keep pushing to graduation through encouraging words and many opportunities to improve one's skills. The school is under construction and appears to become in better condition than my past few years had. One building was complete my last year, though, and most of my classes were in it and it has become a very fine school. If I could change anything about it, I would probably let the parents have less of a voice because their voice comes from their students who complain about not getting their way from extraordinary teachers.

I enjoyed the faculty and administration. The new school building is beautiful and we are taught to stay safe through fire drills, lock down drills, and our security guards. Through the counselors, I am able to take community college classes to receive a head start for college.
Farmington High School is a very great school that is dedicated to ensuring success and preparing students for college. Although it is currently under major construction, teachers do the best that they can to maintain the focus on education despite the distractions and obstacles encountered. Overall Farmington High School is an amazing school and has definitely prepared me for my future, while making school an enjoyable experience.
