If I had to pick one thing that makes Fairfield stand out from all of the other schools it would have to be the teachers. The teachers not only teach what is required of them, they teach life lessons. For example, in eighth grade, every friday my history teacher would have "talk time", where he would stop teaching and actually talk with us like we are more than just students. We could talk about things going on in our lives, and he would tell us about things that he went through when he was our age. And freshman year, my health teacher took the time to break down barriers between students with "circle time". It seemed childish at first (everyone moving their desks into a circle and talking about simple things like families and our favorite pass times), but we really got to know each other and soon we were having a great time making videos for the incoming freshman, and really getting to know our peers. That's another great thing about Fairfield, unlike some school districts that start separating graduating classes into smaller groups as they move from elementary to middle to high school, Fairfield starts as five small elementary and slowly works to get all of the stufents into one building. By fifth grade your entire graduating class is in one building. I also enjoyed having freshman year separated from all of the other grades, instead of freshman being thrown into a giant school with seniors, Fairfield has a separate building for freshman so they can experience high school without some of the drama that goes along with it. Overall I have loved my experiences in the Fairfield School District and wouldn't change a thing.
