Fairfield Elementary, located in rural Davis, opened in 1866 and is Davis Joint Unified School District's oldest public school. The two-room schoolhouse serves students in kindergarten through third grade. It is a neighborhood school for country children and an alternative to large schools for children from the city of Davis. Fairfield has become a model for cooperative education; every family works at least one job. At Fairfield, parent participation is not just encouraged, it is expected. In addition to working a Family Job, families are also asked to complete 6 Work Hours. Parents assist in the classroom and run enrichment programs like "hands-on science," computer lab, and our amazing garden program.
