    Academics: The academics at Fairfield are pretty basic. I like the electives. This year I took cooking and college and beyond. I like how we have the opportunity to take classes like that to learn more about the real life in addition to having to take the required core classes. The work load isn't bad at all. Most of my teachers give time in class to finish homework in case of questions. They all find time for you to come in after school if you need additional help. I love my multi cultural literature class with Mr Muldoon he's encourages conversation and creativity. Though challenging at times, I think I'm learning and practicing more skills that are useful in the work world than I would with another English teacher.

    Extracurriculars: I was never apart of many clubs and organizations. The only thing I as in is soccer so I don't have much room to criticize the clubs but from what I hear on the announcements they seem very involved. They're always doing something and always have different evens whether it's fiestas for Spanish club or a dance recital for the Asian American club. The people I do know that are involved in the clubs seem to be really happy with them.

    Teachers: In my 3 years of being at Fairfield High School I never had a teacher I didn't like. They were all very encouraging and helpful. They all make sure that you understand the material and they are there to help if you don't. They never make you feel dumb no matter the question. They seem to know what they are teaching and have an answer to every question I have had and if they don't know right then, which they usually do, then they figure it out and get back to me. I have been extremely fortunate to have such caring teachers in my high school career.

    Overall Experience: At the end of the day Fairfield has made me into the person I am today. Attending such a large diverse public school was one of the best things to happen to me. It had caused me to always be experience new things that any regular school may not provide. I have been grouped with so many different diverse people, better preparing me for the future. I have learned to have empathy for others and try to understand different people's perspectives. I am very glad Fairfield has been my home and to have attended such a nice school.
