Alum: Farmington High School made me feel prepared to attend and succeed in college. The competitive atmosphere was sometimes discouraging, but mostly encouraged me to try me best. The thing I was most displeased about was the culture of cheating. It was not punished well enough, which led to cheating being very widespread, and almost accepted.

Senior: Greens Farms Academy is a very academically rigorous environment. The students and teachers take education very seriously, and we all encourage and motivate ourselves to keep learning and being curious. Greens Farms Academy has a very supportive community, with teachers devoting their time to always be available for students whether it is for extra-help, advising clubs, or attending sports events and plays. I have had access to many amazing opportunities from attending Greens Farms. I was able to travel to South America and Africa, which were ecological trips that broadened my global perspective and increased my passion for Biology. In addition, joining the diversity club at Greens Farms Academy has enhanced my education about social justice and through opportunities like attending the annual Student Diversity Leadership Conference, my desire to fight for social justice and my appreciation for diversity has amplified.

Niche User: My 8th grader has learned a lot and is well-prepared for high school. Since she entered in 6th grade, I notice much more openness to parent involvement, and MUCH better home-school communication. When my youngest entered 6th grade this year, the orientation and parent communication was fabulous-- like night and day as compared to 3 years ago. I love the weekly newsletters sent by email, as they are hugely informative. The school counselor my kids are assigned to is also amazing--so responsive and supportive. While there have been a couple of teachers I have not found to be ideal for either of my kids, the vast majority are top notch. KP has been great for both of my children.
