Fairmont is committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for students to continue enhancing their character, confidence, and social development.
An Environment Where Students Grow, Learn, and Build Confidence
The teachers at Fairmont were truly passionate about what they do. In the small town learning environment that Fairmont provides, student-teacher relationships are part of what makes the school experience so enjoyable.
When I entered Fairmont, I was shy, curious, and studious. Now I am bold, courageous, and even more studious. Fairmont has not caused me to change who I am; rather it has helped me create who I am. No price tag can be placed on such an experience, for it is integral to the development of every individual who passes through Fairmont’s doors.Kayla Bach
