Curriculum is the lifeblood of education.

An incredible amount of thought and consideration has gone into what – and how – students will learn at the Fairmont Ag Complex than into any other aspect of its development. We have gone to great lengths to ensure our curriculum is as innovative and effective as the rest of this unique learning environment. For example, the Ag-Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Learning Lab will be the first of its kind in California, where K-8 students will learn through inquiry-based practices and innovative opportunities. Student management of the Fairmont Farm will be based on real-world science and engineering practices – in both formal and informal settings – not traditional labs with predetermined outcomes.
