Fairfeild Middle School located in Winnsboro S.C is a terrible place to send your child. They do not have the resourses for abused children and push any problems under the rug. I am a former student and I was bullied by the 8th graders yet they did nothing when i reported it. When I was hospitalized for depression and tried to cut my wrists at school they punished me instead of trying to figure the puzzle out or even asking why I would do such a thing.The teachers sit on there phones and do not try to help you understand things. Fairfield County Schools public and non-public are a definate answer no to send your children!
