In the spirit of service and community care, Fairmont students have actively responded to the coronavirus and are working to help our communities through this difficult time. They’ve been making things like masks distributed across the country, thank you cards for first responders, notes to seniors, and even games and exercise videos for families to enjoy and learn while at home. It is so encouraging to see our students Paws for a Cause!
Fairmont is honored to be rated by Newsweek as Orange County’s top private school for the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program in 2019. The recognition is for our Advanced Science and Engineering Program (ASEP), which offers all STEM courses, as well as a number of additional opportunities, within a collegiate approach. The honor is in no small part due to our incredible teachers — all of whom are all trained in STEM, are professionals in their fields, and have a research background — including Ms. Jaya Leslie.
Dr. Afsaneh Miller, Fairmont Schools science teacher and scientist, who helped build a Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM-based curriculum at Fairmont, is committed to continually provide more creative and effective ways to educate her students.
