Diane Secord, Principal


Welcome to Fairfield Elementary’s website!  FES is a wonderful, rural school. It is embedded in traditions and forward thinking for the 21st Century.  The faculty, staff, families, community members, and students make FES a remarkable school to learn. At FES there are high expectations to not only develop academic skills, but also to cultivate the “Five Cs” which are Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Citizenship (global and local) and Creativity. At Fairfield we expect everyone to Be Courageous and Be Kind.

This is my third year at FES.  I grew up in Rockingham County where I attended Port Republic Elementary, Montevideo Middle School and Spotswood High School.  I graduated from James Madison University in 1993 with a degree in psychology and a concentration in Early Childhood Education.  I became a “Double Duke” in 2000 with a Master of Education with a concentration in reading; in 2017 I completed my school administration endorsement.   Through all these professional endeavors, my husband Steve and two children Canon (20 yrs. old) and Reese (14 yrs. old) have supported my goals.  My family means the world to me.  The Secord Crew are sports fans/athletes, beach bums, and rescue pet owners.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or want to know more about Fairfield Elementary.

Take care,
