    "I grew up in Colorado where my divorced parents and 3 siblings live, I grew up alone and in a cold family. I didn't have friends or sense of home, and I didn't have an education. Moving to Arizona with my grandparents and attending high school at Fountain Hills High School was the best decision I ever made. Although the academics weren't outstanding, had I gone to a larger school I would have fallen behind due to my lack of previous education. I wouldn't have the home feel that I do at FHHS. I attended school successfully every year, I never failed a class, and I am able to continue my education at a higher level because of Fountain Hills High School. In addition to the benefits of the education program, I also made a life and a name for myself on that high school campus; It's where I experienced my best and worst days. I have cried in the bathroom stalls and I have nearly died of happiness in the courtyard. I LOVE the fact that I know EVERYONE in my graduating class. I love that their is no division between grades, we are all friends and we all respect each other. Fountain Hills High School provided me with some of the greatest moments of my life and friendships that will stay with me forever. I would be crazy to give that up, I wouldn't change a thing if I had the chance."

    "In my time at Fountain Hills High School, I have only had 4 teachers that went above and beyond teacher expectations, showed willingness to help ALL students, and really made it a point to let students know they care. These four teachers are also the only teachers I've had where I've gained some type of life lesson and the only teachers who have made me excited to come to their class. Aside from those 4 teachers, the overall quality of teachers is poor. I have heard teachers discuss other students with other students, other teachers with other students, and inappropriate discussions of their personal life's. I do not believe they care for their students or what is going on in their personal life, they have not promoted independence or problem solving skills and have acted in extremely immature ways. I've experienced foul language from a teachers mouth in general and foul language from a teachers mouth DIRECTED at a student. Some of the teachers are not consistent in teaching or grading and that has caused a huge problem with students. There are certain teachers who have entirely screwed up a whole lesson; I once had to correct my math teachers answer keys. I also do not see the teachers in an respectable, leadership way. Students do not respect the teachers or the classroom settings, there is hardly ever discipline, and they are generally looked at as a joke. Last year, we had a Student - Teacher sexual affair case and lost teachers due to inappropriate behavior or too many complaints. This year, we had teachers AND replacement sub- teachers quit."
