This school is very impressive considering the surrounding neighborhood and the socioeconomically diverse population they have to work with. My son is attending, in his freshman year now, and I've been very pleased with the quality and dedication of all of his teachers. The kids who are motivated and want to work hard, do very well and can get into excellent colleges. There are many sports and other extracurricular activities available, including a leadership program, to add to the high school experience. Most of all, the IB program has attracted many quality students from all over Fairfield, as it is the only one of it's kind in the area. The IB program has a proven track record, preparing kids for the rigors of higher education, and is recognized by prestigious colleges and universities all over the country.

The school is full of bullies and there is not much supervision. The academics is bad but for sure you can pray that your kid will turn out to be a fighter and hopefully will be able to defend himself. Good luck parents. We are getting out of Fairfield and this school fast, waiting for year to end.

Armijo is NOT the SCHOOL for any kid looking to have a future. This school is run and operated similar to an adult education or continuation school for students who cant get it right and parents who never got it right. Kids here have no discipline and there is no leadership at this school. STAY FAR FAR AWAY!!! It is in the best interest for your kid to not send them to a High School like this. Kids don't even feel safe going to this school. If I had any first hand knowledge I would have drove 10 miles out of the way to place my son in a safer environment where he can learn like Vanden High. Until this school gets new leadership and real resource police officer this school will continue to be on a downward spiral to NOWHERE!

My first year of high school is going on right now. I am having a blast at Armijo. I am on a very successful track and cross country team with an incredible coach. I plan on it for all four years. Yes there is indeed a ghetto vibe with drugs and such. I think that as long as you stick with your buddies and stay out of obvious trouble then you should be good. Most teachers I thinka re really good. But there are always some who are horrible at teaching. This school has a lot of stuff that goes on for us and has so much to offer. I look forward to the rest of my high school years here :)

I would pick this school out of the rest! The only thing wrong is that it needs building improvements!! Just because it's not in the 'rich' Suisun Valley/Green Valley doesn't mean it should keep falling apart and getting overcrowded.

I am a 2008 Graduate of Armijo High School currentlly attending California State University Sacramento, and I was a full diploma candidate of the IB Diploma. Armijo High School was by far the best part of my educational pursuits, based on the love and support of all my teachers and staff members. Also the coaches and sports teams, though they are average the coaches are excellent and they strive for student success and character building. Armijo High School is an excellent choice for any prospecting student, and in my opinion and the opinion of probably many Armijo Alumni and Parents, Armijo High School is the best high school in Fairfield.

I agree with other parents that when it comes to the councilors and preparing for college, there is room for improvement. Although the IB program is a great way to prepare for college, the councilors have put my child in the incorrect classes to qualify for the IB program before. The school itself is pretty bland, however my child praises the homecoming dances. I still believe it is the best high school in the city thanks to its wide variety of school activities, the IB program, and the high amount of electives - more than any school in Fairfield! It's not nearly as violent as other high schools in the region, and there is an officer on campus at all times.

Armijo is such a boring school. The teachers act like they don't care for the students and are very rude. The school is not involved in extra-cirricular activities, and if there is any, they are not at all enjoyable. The parental volunteer work here is poor. Some of the councellors have no idea what they are talking about and do not know how to answer any questions about getting to college or graduating. The environment at Armijo is poor. The classrooms in the annex smell like mold, the buildings are old and broke, and it seems like im allergic everywhere i go on the campus. The campus is not at all beautiful. I do not think that this is a good school at all.

Armijo is, by far, the best school in the district if your child excels academically. Thanks to the honors classes & IB program, the top grads are always accepted to the best schools in the nation: UCB, UCLA, Ivy Leagues, MIT, CIT, Stanford, Claremont Colleges, etc., more so than any other district school. If your child is an average student, her/his needs may be better met elsewhere. Counseling staff is below par, but the college/career advisor is very good. Teachers are a mixed lot, some stellar, some poor (like anywhere). Re: safety - if your kid isn't the type to start trouble, he/she most likely won't encounter any. Campus cops stay on top of things as does the admin. Facility is old but newly renovated. Not beautiful, but that's likely not most parents' top concern. Great diversity here. Many opportunities for parental involvement and volunteerism.

Too much violence and drugs. No extra help for college placement. Tired underpaid teachers. Run down campus.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted May 9, 2007

There is just to much violence at the school. It is very hard to get anybody to respond to these issues. The stress level at Armijo is so thick it is as if you are walking through a cloud. The reason: no parental involvement. We are to busy working to spend anytime with our childs education. Are we ignoring the crys of our children?

Posted January 27, 2007

If it weren't for the IB program, my son wouldn't be at this school. The physical structures are old and in need of repair. Parental involvement is non-existent and there are very few teachers that actually care. But the ones that do are stellar, so I can't tar all the teachers with the same brush.

I feel Armijo has always been the best school in the district. I am quite pleased with the new principal and I feel he will do a much better job. I feel we have the best resource officer in the district and we will be back on track once again. I still feel no matter what Armijo is the best school in the district.

My daughter is graduating from the IB program in June, and we are very impressed by the quality of the school and the teachers. Fourteen Armijo students were accepted at UC Berkeley this year, more than another of school in Fairfield. Students have also been accepted at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, UOP, UCD, UCLA, Wellesley, Bryn Mawr, Smith, Middleburry, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, and many other selective colleges and universities. I see the teachers working hard with students who are making the effort. I am impressed withg the principal and some of the counselors. I think the school is doing a very good job with most students, and an outstanding job with the motivated ones. Some parents want the school to tailor the requirements for their kids to the detriment of the rest of the kids. I applaud the school for being fair to all its students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
