    "This school has a huge drug problem and the teacher's ignore it. The teacher's are there to collect a paycheck. The student's do not get any help, even when they ask to stay after class. They are ignored. This school is at the bottom of the barrel academically."

    "As a former student, I really appreciated Fountain Hills High School. I went there for all four years, and had an amazing experience with sports, teachers, and activities in the town. For the parents who are saying how bad of a school this is for their child I would say it is not the school's fault, but the child's. Students will get much out of Fountain Hills High School if they apply themselves. I felt very prepared to go to college and am doing very well having a 3.7 GPA and can accredit it to my time in High School. So parents, please look at your child and assess whether they truly are applying themselves instead of blaming everything on the school administration. Is your child actually studying or doing their homework? Are they involved in anything at the school or in the community? If not, encourage them to do so. Be parents, school is not there to parent your child, you are."

    "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."
