Fairmont Junior High - Update

Fairmont Junior High School was constructed in 1964.  Fairmont is overcrowded and ranked as the second worst junior high school on two of the three major 2016 Facilities Audit categories (Educational Adequacy and Facilities Condition Index) and the worst junior high on the category of Utilization.  

Fairmont is one of two junior high schools that doesn’t have adequate physical education space.  The current gym is outdated and has become an obstacle to properly delivering academic, athletic and art education. The cafeteria is too small for current and projected enrollment. These issues create scheduling challenges for classes and extracurricular events.


July 3, 2019 Update: Sletten Construction reports Fire/Life Safety inspections are scheduled for Wednesday, July 10 for the new Cafeteria/Gymnasium. Framing is complete for construction of new classrooms in the old Cafeteria/Kitchen. The electrical rough-in inspection is scheduled for Wednesday, July 3. Mechanical and plumbing rough-ins are in progress.
