    This school has helped me with so much. When I went to Lancaster I didnt nearly have the grades that I have now. The teachers are EXCELLENT!!!!!!

    I am a math teacher with 36 years of experience. Twenty-six of these years have been spent teaching the wonderful students at Fairfield Union High School. Our math department is one of the best in the county. We have many former students who are now teachers of mathematics or are studying to be math instructors. Many alumni are also engineers or in an engineering program. I am a grad of Fairfield Union and William D. Queen was my instructor and mentor.

    I am a graduate of Fairfield Union and now have two children who attend this great school system. Starting the 2009-2010 school year we will be entering all-new buildings. The community support has always been excellent and FUHS attracts top-notch teachers despite its rural location. Music is in the forefront with the school fielding an excellent entertaining marching band and also offering two jazz performance groups that are award-winning. The choral program was started by the acclaimed conductor Rober Trocchia and is continued to this day in his image. The Assembly Singers a select choral group have traveled the world and received many national and international honors. Academics are also top-notch and offerings include vocational agriculture a fast-disappearing course. Post-secondary opportunities are available at the Ohio University - Lancaster branch to supplement advanced students' needs. Sports teams enjoy excellent facilities and community support.

    Fairfield Union is unique in so many ways. There is a rich history some tall tails but a wonderful school with many acclaimed alumi. The business classes are very good music classes are awsome and the sports have the normal ups and downs but remain consistant. As parents we want to see our children do well and with administration that are parents of district students our levy funds are less likely to be poorly spent.
