The school as a whole isn't terrible, it just wasn't the right fit for me! I transferred to a school that has more attentive teachers and has better opportunities for me. I feel that there were a lot of opportunities for students who wanted to be involved with extra curricular activities and that it was a good school for a lot of students. I liked having the opportunities to take AP and Advanced level courses while at Fairfield High School, but I found that most teachers didn't take much interest in their students.

Fairfield has so many different clubs to be a part of. It is racially diverse and is excellent academically, athletically, culturally, musically and in just about every facet that you can think. There are normal safety drills and so many opportunities for students to take advantage of. We have everything from Asian American Club and Anime Club to Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Junior State of America. Fairfield also has an award winning, internationally acclaimed show choir and outstanding drama department with dedicated and personal directors. I would recommend Fairfield High School to anyone.

Fairfield offers a variety of sports, musical groups, and clubs to its students.In general, the staff and students are very welcoming! The only thing upsetting at Fairfield is that many students don't like to stray far from being "normal". However, the staff encourages students to try new things and to be open to everyone! From my experience, cliques aren't a huge problem, and many students are involved in more than one extracurricular activity.
