I taught at this school, and if I were a parent I would not send your kid here. The kids are violent, disrespectful, and disruptive. Send your kid somewhere else.
As a student I'm having fun at Fairfield High School. The campus may not look that great due to the gum on concrete and some trash on the floor. On the upside, there are many spirited and friendly students and staff. The best part about the school is the student rallies, dances, and activities they offer. Also, I'm in the CA-032nd A.F.J.R.O.T.C. (Air Force Junior Reserved Officer Training Corps) program and we just recently been awarded as a Distinguished Unit. Otherwise, its a pretty satisfying school.
This is an awful school. My daughter had to change her schedule 3 times in 4 months because the teachers keep quitting so they had to actually drop classes due to low staff. This has happened 2 years in a row. I think they need to get a handle on their teaching staff, hire better more involved teachers that actually care about teaching instead of just being there until they receive a better offer from another school. There is no available counseling and the office staff could care less.
I am an alumnus of Fairfield High School class of 2007. This school had it's share of problems, but thanks to a brilliant teaching and administrative staff, i excelled and enjoyed my time there.
I went to Fairfield High School and excelled tremendously. The academics and extra curricular activities are beyond average. It is indisputable that Fairfield High school is best amongst the rest in the surrounding area.
I myself went to Fairfield High School. It has changed thru the years but overall. I believe as a parent of one that graduated in 2005 and one thats starting this year. Would give a good rating for this school. Sure there are always going to be things that all dont agree with. But there are alot of parents that knows whats going on and we all keep an eye on our children. As far as academic programs, really cant say too much about it. Its availabe if the students would like. Same with all things in the school. If the students take advantage of all things the school has to offer they would all have it made.
ffh has the best school resource officer out of all school. the school its self is good but the students cause a lot of problems.
I loved going to this school. The education I received there greatly prepared for college at UC Irvine. The counslers there can be helpful if you tell them what you want to do after high school. Whenever registration came around I told them 'I want to go to a UC and put in the classes to get. there.' The math and science departments are excellent. Mr. Houk, Mr. Powers, Mr. Gelpke, and Mrs. Beagle are all exellent teachers. The sports programs and facilities are excellent, the library and computer system and science equipment is state of the art. It's by far the best high school in Fairfield. Class of 2003.
I think overall its a great school with great teachers.I truly believe alot of kids don't apply themselves its not the teachers!My kids did well there:0)I hate hearing it compared to other High schools here there all equal kids need to applythemselves everyone can do well if they try some don't wantto.
I was in the band at this school. It has an excellent marching, concert and jazz program. Very good school overall. Pretty good teachers.
This school is a good school far as extra activites go. Well a lot of the teachers can be really fun but then it's not a really great school. There are fights every now and then but I suppose it's all alight. They have AFJROTC which is Air Force Junior Reverse Officer Training Corps. It may sounds harsh but it's actually very fun and teaches discipline fun and easy. The school has good standings with highschool requirements and college courses but the performance with the students could be better.
This school was a tremendous disappointment. I graduated from this school (1976) and so have two of my children. (1997 & 2005). I would not recommend this atmosphere to any child or parent. The office administers are rude and disrespectful to parents as well as students. My other three children are not attending Fairfield High. I refuse to put them in an environment where their education does not seem important and where counselors are not available. I believe the students are not equipped to enter college with great efficiency unless you prepare them in other ways. College classes at Solano for High School students or charter school supplementing.
Thanks to outstanding parental and booster support, the extracirricular programs are some of the best in the district. However, the administration has and continues to grade at a 'D' level at best. The lack of communication, the lack of organization, and the lack of common sense lead me to believe that the 'needs of the many' are set aside in favor of those that 'rule,' in a manner of speaking. What FFHS needs is bona fide leadership -- now!
I think that the art program in FHS is pretty strong and the teachers care
I think that Fairfield High is such a great school. The campus is quite clean and the education is wonderful. It offers a study hall and blocked classes which have helped many students. They offer a great extra curricular activity programs, ranging from band to football and rugby. Tutering is available also as a great addition the school was remodeled durring the summer vacation of 2004, making this school very ecceptional!
Big sprawling campus where the ones that need the most help are left stranded, and the ones that aren't 'stars' get left behind.
I graduated from this school in 2002, let me say that unless you're in the full AP program and involved in things such as Key Club, ASB, Honor Society, etc. I'd send your kids to private school. The AP program is both challenging (I received 4's and 5's on my AP exams) and has helped me earn A's in my English and Biology classes at the University of California. I TA'd for regular classes and the quality is not there. This is mostly a student motivation issue.
This school is more like a place to house children while the parents are at work. Most of the teachers are there only to pick up a paycheck, and do not care about the children. I suggest we do away with the tenure system in order to help solve the problem.
The teachers really seem to care about their students. Not just how well they do in the classroom, but how well they do in life. It is nice to know that Fairfield High has found so many teachers that actually are concerned about their students progress and are not just there to collect a paycheck.
