    "Fort Hill is either about sports or the band and if you aren't in either than you are considered a nobody in the school. Which was a reason why I left after 10th grade and went to a different school. The school itself has the worst reputation in the county and if you say you go there, you are looked down upon by people in the county. I'm so glad I left that school behind to find some where else to continue my education."

    "This school has two things that receive all of the attention. Football and band. If the rest of the school received as much attention, this school would be a 10 on a 5 scale. There is a lot of local politics and it is a who-you-know and who-are-you school and town. Outsiders aren't welcomed by the locals. But, at the same time, they are always complaining about the town losing population and the school getting smaller. They're their own worst enemies. I have to say that the school itself is much better than the town or the town people. The school would probably rate a 3 in any other town. If you have to move to this area, you might be better off moving to the WV side of the river."

    "Fort Hill was an awsome experience for me, and I wish I could just go back. I loved it there. When in school I made great friends, but not only with other students, but with the teachers as well. The teachers really try to make sure that everyone is learning and gets the help they need. This school provides an awsome creative atmosphere as well, the art programs are great, and it's well worth taking an art class if you atend this school."

    "Fort Hill... This school offers an excellent education, but only if you put forth the effort to do so. I'd have to admit that it's easy to get side-tracked from your studies. Though the greatest thing about the place ,I'd have to say, is the football, being on the team myself. The band is awesome, the other extracurricular activities are awesome, but the focus on education... not so much. Which is why I gave this place 4 stars."
