    "The kids have had 8 algebra teachers since the beginning of the year. 2 actual teachers and the rest were subs. The same thing happened in physics with 3 different teachers. There are some very unstable kids here with self esteem issues, and they tend to thrive off of one another and try to drag others down with them, but then there are a lot of good kids too. The athletic program and band program are wonderful and those kids are really happy. Most parents work full time here and kids are often meandering around the town getting in trouble because there is nothing to do here. Research the town's problems in the FH Times and some community Facebook pages to inform yourself before you find yourself in a terrible situation."

    "Fountain Hills HS is a unique school in a unique community. We have a daughter who has been attending for two years and loves it. She is in AP and Honors classes, multiple clubs and a sport. The school offers three diploma levels. She is working on graduating with the Highest Distinction diploma and has already earned college credit from a couple of her courses. We have a son who will be starting his Freshman year there and can't wait! Like any school parents need to be involved and FHHS is no different. Get involved, put your student on a diploma path that will challenge him/her and encourage them to participate in extracurricular activities. They will love this small school experience."

    "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."
