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
