  • History & Memorable Moments

Armijo High School is a secondary school located in Fairfield, California which first began operation in 1891. This school has been named both a California Distinguished School and a National School of Excellence. This school is encompassed into the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District, which includes several other area high schools, junior high schools, and elementary schools. Their athletic teams are known as the Indians and the school colors are purple and gold. The school does not have many clubs and opportunities for students to become better adults. [1]

The school started with a single classroom at Crystal Elementary School, with a mere thirty students. After that, it was moved to a simple wooden frame building where it remained for about fifteen years. During that time the student population ranged from about twenty to forty students, very small in comparison to today's size. The school was then moved to the large white, stone building that is now used as courthouse. There it stayed for about fifty years, and this is where it grew the most. In 1958, the school began the transition of moving into the "new" buildings at 824 Washington Street, where it is still located. [1]

The Armijo Signal is part of the High School National Ad Network. [1]

Armijo High School also offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program for juniors and seniors, and a pre-IB program for freshmen and sophomores. The pre-IB program is composed mainly of honors classes, and the IB program is similar to the Advanced Placement (AP) program. In AP, each class ends the year with an AP exam, which costs 83 dollars, but the passing student can waive the same class in college. For example, if one completes the AP US History course with about an A, they get weighted credits (which means that an A gives a 5.0, a B a 4.0, and so on) and the ability to not have to retake the same class in college or a university. Others, even if they are in Pre-IB, will have to retake the same class in college, as it is a required class, no matter what the major is. Pure IB classes, such as IB Biology, are weighted as well. [1]

For the 2007-2008 school year, Armijo will be changing the bell times and closing the parking lot during lunch and passing periods, The school year will start on August 20th, 2007. This will be the first year that Armijo drops the Short Wednesdays - Teacher planning will take place after school, last year Armijo got out at 2:57 this year it will be 2:40. [1]
