Through partnerships with parents and with community resources, Farmington High School strives to help students develop into civic-minded adults and to explore the possibilities that await them. Our School to Career Program, for example, has forged mentor relationships between students and professionals in the fields of health and biosciences, manufacturing, communication and repair technologies. Students learn and practice the fundamentals of self-governance through an active student council. Students reach out to the community in many ways, serving as mentors for elementary school students and as tutors in the Hartford school system, as well as sponsoring fundraising activities for such organizations as the American Red Cross throughout the year.
Top-notch athletic and extracurricular programs support the school's academic tradition. FHS received the Michael's Cup Award for the strongest Division L athletic program in the state in the 2010-2011 school year.
