Fairfax Senior High School Reviews
Having served in the positions teacher, coach and administrator in several schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District for over 37 years, I recognize Fairfax High School as a superb high school. The faculty, administration, parents, and staff work closely to provide excellent support to students both academically and socially. The students are responding with their focus achievement as evidenced by the increase in the state test scores.
