About Fairfield, Illinois
Fairfield, the home of our school, was laid out as a town in 1819, receiving its name because no "fairer field" could be found in Southern Illinois, other than the plain chosen. After ten years of existence, there were 100 inhabitants in Fairfield. A bank was started in the year 1856 and the first school was taught in any building that was vacant and convenient. The first brick schoolhouse was built in 1874. The town became incorporated in 1856 and according to the last census, the current population of Fairfield is approximately 5000. Economically, the school community in Fairfield derives most of its income from agribusiness.
Fairfield Community High School is fortunate to receive such strong and loyal support from the City of Fairfield and numerous local businesses. Our school exists to assist attending students in developing and expanding their intellectual, physical, emotional and social well-being.
