Our roots grow deep.

Fairmont is a unique country campus with deep roots and an outstanding reputation.

A rich heritage

Set in an established farming area known for nearly a century of stone fruit, citrus and raisin production, the Fairmont community has a reputation for strong values, outstanding work ethic, and a commitment to supporting education. Many current Fairmont students have parents and even grandparents who attended the school, and several current educators are Fairmont alumni.

A rich heritage

Leading the way

This rich tradition is uniquely coupled with a dynamic and ambitious staff who embrace diversity and innovation, inspiring the launch of the first K-8 comprehensive agriculture education program in California. Each week, students receive an hour of NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) agricultural science instruction from a veteran full-time agriculture teacher, then apply those lessons to investigations and experiments in the field.

Leading the way

Building for the future

When Sanger Unified School District acquired a 2-acre parcel of land adjacent to the existing campus in 2018, the vision for the Ag Complex bloomed. Here, students will explore real-world agriculture concepts in a high-tech, hands-on environment. The goal – to produce graduates with a deep understanding of agriculture who are prepared to anticipate and meet the changing world’s demands on agriculture with innovation and expertise.

Building for the future
