Fairfield Public Schools

Inspiring students to acquire the knowledge and skills

To Become

life-long learners

responsible citizens

Fairfield is a charming, thriving town featuring five miles of
shoreline on the Long Island Sound. Fairfield has more than 59,000
residents but maintains a small-town feeling--diverse neighborhoods
with their own character and flair, top-notch neighborhood-based
schools, and many active civic associations.
- Town of Fairfield
The mission of the Fairfield Public Schools, in partnership with families and community, is to ensure that every student acquires the knowledge and skills needed to be a lifelong learner, responsible citizen, and successful participant in an ever changing global society through a comprehensive educational program.

Please note that the Board of Education adjusted the school calendar during the 04/06/2017 BOE Meeting to account for Snow Days and the Special Election. McKinley will operate on a different end of year calendar due to having additional missed days with a water issue earlier in the year. All information will be posted on the main page of the website.

Fairfield Public Schools' Summer Reading 2017

The primary goal of our Summer Reading program is to encourage your development as a life-long reader and thinker. While we know that you will read many, many books this summer, we ask that one of the books that you choose come from the list of titles below.

When you return to school in the fall, you will participate in an activity that will allow you to share one of the books that you read with your peers. Your teacher will share the details with you in the first few days of school.

Encouraging Fairfield students to read is one of the many ways we are preparing you for academic excellence. Have a great summer and happy reading!
