    "Great small school with a fabulous music/band instructor who motivates students and generates excitement in the music programs."

    "We moved to AZ from the midwest two years ago. We have three sons in FHHS. We were looking for a smaller school and a community that was just that...a community, not a part of suburban sprawl. Our sons were welcomed at this school as part of the band and are enrolled in AP classes. Public education is substandard no matter where you live. However, we have supplemented our kids' education since they have gone to school with experiences and online learning. The size of the other schools in the greater Phx area enables them to have more classes, however, we have found the ability to get to know the staff, students quickly has enabled our kids to be successful and be assured they are making good decisions inside and outside of school. Fountain Hills is the only 'town' left in Phoenix and we love it. A PhD leads the science department and stretches the kids through the #1 robotics program in AZ and regionally. Like every school, there are outstanding teachers and others you learn to avoid. The new principal is focused on bringing the rating back to an "A". At the high school level, success of failure depends on the parenting of the prior 14 years, not the school they attend."

    "This school is awful. Do not come here. As a junior here, i regret wasting 2 years of my high school career at this school. The teachers are bias and unwilling to help a lot of students. The faculty here does a terrible job. This school is just plain boring if you are a student looking to have a memorable high school experience. Save yourselves and your money, go to a scottsdale school, or Payson."

    "I have a junior at FHHS and he is very successful here. He takes the AP and honors classes (many are offered) and is involved in sports and clubs. We have had a good overall experience with this school. The false rumor mill is very damaging. I sense many parents in the community find it some sort of a status raising thing to send their kids "over the mountain" to Scottsdale. Not true--let's band together and support our schools here in the great community of Fountain Hills."

    "Many people complain about how easy this school is and how they need to move their kids to a better school such as Desert Mountain. To be quite honest, I think this school is amazing if you are smart. I am currently on a plan to graduate with 56 credits. Most of the teachers are exceptional, with a few bad ones here and there. So if you are sitting here complaining about what an awful school this is, obviously you are not smart enough to realize the potential the school has for your child."
