Fairborn, Ohio is located approximately 12 miles east of Dayton, and our schools are located throughout the community, serving as hubs of collaboration, community, and connection. The Fairborn City School District primarily serves students in Fairborn, Bath Township, and Wright Patterson Air Force Base, with a student population of just over 4,200. The City of Fairborn has an estimated 33,780 residents that come to us from all around the state, country, and world.
We are a diverse, close-knit, and innovative learning community. We value the qualities and traits the individual student brings to the classroom while encouraging them to explore their leadership roles in our community. This wide array of experiences and identities converges with our innovative and forward-thinking teaching practices to create a learning community that believes in respectful collaboration, academic rigor, and high personal expectations.
As our mission states, our faculty, staff, administration, and students are relentless in our pursuit of personal and academic excellence. Ultimately, that pursuit will set our students up for success in whatever path they choose.
Fairborn students attend school in grade-level learning communities, which are housed at the former sites of our neighborhood schools. The transition to grade-level buildings occurred in 2004 as a response to community-based research, a district-wide restructuring program, and ultimately with the goal of increasing collaborative teaching efforts across individual grade levels.
Fairborn Primary School, (which sits on the site of the old Five Points Elementary & Park Hills Junior High School), is home to our youngest Skyhawks in grades PreK-2. Fairborn Intermediate School, (which sits on the site of the former Palmer-South Elementary), is home to students in grades 3-5. Baker Middle School, (which is the former Baker High School and East Elementary Campus), houses grades 6-8. Finally, our students in grades 9-12 attend Fairborn High School, (which is in the former Park Hills High School building).
Our schools and community have a rich history. Our ability to look ahead, yet preserve the best aspects of our past, sets Fairborn apart from other communities. We continue to blaze new trails as we reach forward to a bright future and a limitless horizon.
