Farmington has wonderful staff who is always willing to work with kids. Their after school activities are amazing and keep kids thinking and in shape. Farmington does a wonderful job of keeping the students in mind.

This is an excellent school. I think the staff is very nice and helpful. The principal is very nice and the assistant principal is also, they are both very funny. They make it fun to be in school, and learn. The teachers are helpful and explain stuff very well. I love this school!
