We believe all students should become contributing members of the school and community.
We believe the entire community shares in the development and success of students.
We believe a safe and secure facility is essential to learning.
We believe in an environment which promotes positive self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
We believe each student should be respectful, caring, responsible, and self-disciplined.
We believe it is essential that learning continues throughout one's life.

The Fairfield Area School District website is designed to be a quick and easy way for you to learn about our school district. Our intention is to highlight the accomplishments of our students while providing The school community with information about the many, varied aspects of our district. This website is also the gateway to explore each of our schools and various programs that we offer for students, families and community residents.
Fairfield Area School District Is Seeking the Public’s Input on the Idea of Changing Starting Times for the Elementary and Secondary
The school districts in Adams County are in the process of researching the pros and cons of changing the starting times for elementary and secondary age students. In addition to a review of written research the superintendents will be requesting, in the near future, individuals complete a survey on the topic. In order to assist individuals in making an informed decision, the District is providing research information here for all to review. Thank you for your time and assistance in this very important decision.
