Farmington High now only has 300 students. We have always been a school where you can walk down the hall on your way to class and strike up a conversation with almost everybody, because you know everybody! This is the one thing that students and teachers who leave always say they miss most, because we all have this strong bond even though we may not all have that Tiger Pride.

I have been in the Farmington school district since I was in Kindergarten. This community is very close with each other and because the schools are so small we're all relatively friendly with each other. It is easier for the students to be able to have one-on-one help with teachers because the classes are so small it is easier for a bond to form between teachers and students. The only real downfall of this school system is there is a constant change in the administration and it just seems like no one really knows how to handle certain matters.
When I volunteer at FHS, I see such caring and enthusiastic support from the staff. Students are encouraged to learn about their strengths just as much as they are encouraged to acquire new skills. The size of the student body is perfect for affording the students opportunities to customize their education.
