Teachers at North Farmington have different styles of teaching. My favorite teacher, Mr. Bause makes learning fun! Mr. Bause incorporates many fun ways to remember steps in equations that can be very difficult for students to remember. I can tell Mr. Bause cares about his students because he is always willing to assist, especially the students that experience difficulties understanding the various concepts that he teaches. I really feel that if more teachers shared the same passion in their teaching style as Mr. Bause, students would share his passion in their education and North Farmington would have a better teachers as a whole.
North Farmington High School has provided me with the tools necessary to excel in college. This has nothing to do with the building itself, and everything to do withe people: students, teachers, administration, janitors, art teachers, attendance secretaries,etc. Everyone here has helped me, and truly wants what is best for the students. I have learned my math, science, history and English, but I have also learned so much more. I was taught how to interact with all types of people , and how to collaborate with individuals who have different opinions. I have learned that you can go as far as you want in life, and I have learned it is okay to ask for help. North Farmington is truly a wonderful High School.
This school has amazing teachers, but the resources are limited. The counseling department FORGOT to send my final transcript to my University, and I was not able to register for classes. The teachers are wonderful though, and there are many clubs and ways to get involved. The facilities really need to be improved, as leaky ceilings and molding ceiling tiles were the usual in classrooms. Food is absolutely terrible. Little diversity beyond cookie-cutter school lunches- highly disappointing.
