Fairfield Elementary School
"And the hawk he flies, and the ground squirrel runs, and the child grows wise in the Fairfield sun."
Fairfield School, located in rural Davis, opened in 1866 and is Davis Joint Unified School District's oldest public school. The two-room schoolhouse serves students in kindergarten through third grade. It is a neighborhood school for country children and an alternative to large schools for children from the city of Davis. Fairfield has become a model for cooperative education; every family works at least one job. Parents assist in the classroom and run enrichment programs like "Hands-on Science," computer lab, and our amazing garden program.
