That teacher, voigt, should definitely be fired. As a former teacher, I am appalled at the fact that he judged our president in front of his students. I withheld opinion until he explained the situation himself, at which time it was apparent to me that he should no hold any responsible position with impressionable children.

In answer to a previous reviewer, the Fairfield High School sports & band trucks are paid for by the booster clubs, not the school district. And the trip to China was financed by a local company, again not the school district. It stinks that they had to eliminate busing, but the alternative was to eliminate teachers. My kids both are in the Fairfield High School, both in AP programs and have done outstanding on ACT's, etc. So I have to give the school and teachers a lot of credit. Not perfect, but my kids are doing better there than several friends' kids in private schools in the area. It's a very large school, but they have also done a nice job of getting the kids involved in extracurricular activities. The band and show choir programs are outstanding.

I would think that a great school would be one that makes busing a priority over sports. They have a large red truck with the footballs team logo on the side, I guess it's for football gear, although you could fit a dragster race car in it. When I went to school, we used one of the school buses for that.. They even say on their own website that it is safer for school kids to ride a bus rather than going by car yet they force you to drive your kids to the high school or they can walk, but they could have to cross 5 lanes of traffic (not safe, even the police said it wasn't safe). Kids that are just learning to drive are driving themselves to school (and paying $55. for parking) because their parents have no choice they will lose their jobs or let their kids drive themselves when they are not ready yet. The parents need to work. The school has screwed up priorities. You don't bite the hand that feeds you. The kids and the parents are the customers, not anyone in the school. They sent two people to China recently, said it was to study their education system, Why? Is that supposed to mean that we want to be just like Cihina? They hired a financial guy to help their finances?

My son is a junior and has been in the school system all his life. I am very pleased with his experience both academically, socially and athletics. The school has a top rated marching band. As a parent and a leader in the community, I am very proud of our high school.

I give FHS a five star rating. The teachers are great and the adminstration is great. The principal is a great leader and has led the high school to six year of excellence.

FHS is a great school which has proven itself by maintaining an excellent rating by the Ohio Board of Education. My child has an opportunity to be in many diverse programs, including a top soccer program, vocal music and drama, and academic organizations. For the lower taxes we pay compared to surrounding districtsthe school is certainly maintaining a high quality learning environment.

The block schedule of FHS leaves much to be desired. While great for the teachers, the block schedule dillutes challenge which should be given to the students and produces substantial gaps in the students' educations. While there is a core group of supportive parents within the school district, the academic standards remain immensely lower than those of surrounding districts.

I stopped in the High School to pay my child's fee's and was introduced to the new assistant principal. It is very obvious who the current administration feels is the discipline problem at the school and I guess this man is the man who is supposed to solve all of the issues because he is coming from NCH. I personally think FFH is a racist school and hiring this person simply proves my point. I hope his big salary was worth it when the board ask us for another levy!

While my child received an excellent education it was with no support from your inexperienced and I fear much too young administration who were apparently hired to 'bond' with the students rather than set examples and be appropriate role models. Not a day went by that my daughter did not come home and tell me some unbelievable scene that occurred in the cafeteria or the hall or even in the classroom that went with out discipline and the offending student got off with a 'warning' or worse case a day in ISD. She even indicated that a student even threw a book at a teacher in class and the teacher was admonished for provoking the student! I wonder who is running the show and why is the district allowing this to happen?

Fairfield has very good athletic and top of the state music programs. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and I feel confident sending my children there.

The school is self-promoting based on statewide test scores. The upshot is that the school is better than the state peers, but in the middle relative to its local peers. Lakota West, Lakota East and Edgewood consistently are better performers. The recent tax hikes are not merited relative to the education received.
