Here’s what we hear about strides going forward on the campus: Under proactive principal Mr. Zubiate, scores are rising at Fairfax High, students are no longer being bused in from outside the local community (with the exception of students in the arts magnet program), in Sept. 2008 the school will be beginning a new Small Learning Communities program and, in the meantime, Fairfax is embarking on a major capital campaign to redo its sports facilities and beautify the campus.

And of course, Fairfax High is supported by the cooler-than-cool Greenway Arts Alliance (Greenway Theatre, actually on the Fairfax High campus) who, in partnership with the Fairfax Parents & Friends Foundation, run the Melrose Trading Post (every Sunday on the parking lot at Fairfax High). Widely considered the most successful ongoing fundraising project in LA Unified’s history, The Melrose Trading Post is a flea market “for the sexy, hip and groovy crowd” (LA Times).
