    Important information to consider before you apply: 

    • Intradistrict School of Choice students do not need to submit an additional application for school of choice as it will be granted with acceptance to the IB programme. Transportation is not provided for school of choice students and all classes are at FHS. All students must be able to get to and from Farmington High School without the aid of the district.
    • Current FHS 9th or 10th grade students should contact Mr. Miesner and/or their counselor prior to applying to the IB Diploma Programme to ensure they have the prerequisites to enter the full program.
