School Reviews

  • Recommended December 15, 2008 - When I attended North Farmington, starting in 1998, I found the quality of education to be quite high. The teachers expected a lot of the students and I was more than prepared for college. In fact, university was easier. I am proud to call myself a Raider! - Posted by Student/Alumni

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
