Principal's Message

Dear Griffin Families,
Principal Swilley
I would like to welcome all of our new and returning students! I am looking forward to another productive and successful school year. We are glad to welcome our Griffins on campus and will continue to ensure that quality teaching and learning occur every day for every student. Our theme for the 2023-2024 school year will be: Ready, Set, G.R.O.W.! This theme encompasses the realization that you must continue to improve and develop as you work towards becoming a Griffin Graduate. Parents/Guardians, you too are needed to support the growth process of your Griffin(s) during their high school years. We need EVERYONE involved. We know that Fairfield Central High School Students are destined for amazing accomplishments and significant milestones this school year. The gifts and talents of our students, combined with the dedication and passion of our teachers, allow us to strive for excellence. Excellence is not the result of a good intention or clever slogan. It is not a value that is easily achieved. It comes from a strong desire to improve how we do things when we see something we can do better.

Fairfield Central High School will continue as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) site. We are excited about our continued efforts schoolwide to help our students “OWN” their learning. We made great strides last year, and we have a lot to be proud of. A few of our highlights include 18 graduates of Midlands Technical College with Associate Degrees in Science and/or General Studies Certificates, State and National Accolades for our Griffin Beta Club to include another State President, increase in the number of students earning college credits, as well as increased EOC passage rate. I know by continually
improving our school-community relations, more positive gains are inevitable. Find any successful school, and you will also find parents and community members who are involved and supportive of the school. Your support is integral to our success. This community recognizes the value of educational and extra-curricular activities; therefore, our school expects our students to excel both inside and outside of the classroom. I hope you are proud of our students, as they reflect these expectations through their character and commitment.
Dr. Tracie Swilley
Proud Principal
