Learning can be fun! Students engaged in a critical thinking activity

Welcome to Fairfield Magnet

The faculty, staff, and administration of the Fairfield Magnet School are committed to establishing a culture of competence, collaboration, trust, and respect. It is important for the school and district create and develop an atmosphere of trust among parents and the greater community.  We provide an educational experience in which the  best interest of students is at the forefront of every decision. Community input and participation are expected.  We invite you to join in the excitement growing in Fairfield County School District.
Fairfield County School District is an exciting place for students to learn. The district provides a 1:16 student teacher ratio and a wide variety of academic offerings to promote student achievement. The district leads approximately 3,000 students; large enough to offer progressive programs yet small enough to allow teachers the chance to cultivate a  personal and active interest in each student.

Sweat It Out!

What better way to give back to the community and fellowship and have fun than by participating in a 5K? On September 19, 2019, the Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science “Winning Wildcats” faculty and staff participated in the Winnsboro Rotary Club’s 5K walk and run. The Rotary Club race included a Zumba session, lead by our Wildcat dance teacher, Ms. Kennedy Crosby. The school used this wonderful opportunity to not only to give back to the community, but as a time to fellowship with each other, as well as other community members, and get in a little exercise. The Winning Wildcats team had 12 faculty and staff members to participate and won first place for the group with the most participants. One of the goals of the FMSMS family for the school year is to give back and take a more active role in our community. The Winnsboro Rotary Club works to provide community support through different programs. FMSMS worked diligently to be able to be a part of the walk and help the Rotary Club with their efforts to provide programs and support to the Fairfield County community. Our Fairfield community is filled with wonderful opportunities to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the residents. Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science is working towards the goal to give back to our community...one step at a time.
FMSMS Men education.

Males in Education

Elementary schools across South Carolina are losing more and more male educators, but not here at Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science. Male teachers and staff members provide a positive male image which is critically important for young boys to see in their lives. By exhibiting certain character traits, male teachers and staff members can shape students’ moral compass and might even inspire them to become teachers. As much as young men look up to sports figures and musicians, a strong male role model in the front of the classroom or around the school can positively influence the emotional, social, and physical development of students, especially boys. Male teachers and staff members often use humor and playing sports with students, during breaks, to build relationships. Many male teachers share similar interests with their male students, which serves as a channel for meaningful connections. Here at FMSMS, our male teachers and staff members go above and beyond their job titles. They serve as positive role models and mentors to all our students by engaging in meaningful relationships and by ensuring the safety of all. It doesn’t matter what role they are in; they are here for the children. Men do matter!
