    "Fort Dorchester isn't a bad school at all. It's a normal school compared to charleston county school So what if the teachers aren't the best but they try there hardest to teach. It's just hard for them to teach when there is rowdy students. Principals don't do there job to stop the rowdy kids so the teachers don't teach. It's nobody fault but there own. I love FDHS:)"

    "I find that Fort Dorchester is the worst school in DD2 county. The administrative consequences are far too harsh for such petty troubles. They do not discipline you on what you've done but on how many write ups you've had. The teachers don't want to teach. Majority of them throw tempers, and are very biased on discipline. I'm a student and Fort Dorchester is wack"

    "I find the violence (fights) very disturbing. I worry about our daughters safety. She is very unhappy at this school but it is the one we are zoned for. We have hopes of relocating her next year for Ashley Ridge.I feel the school worries more about not having any lunch charges then about her ability to learn. Let's not get started on the pushing and shoving in the halls just to get to class. At 4'11' and 90 pounds she gets pushed around a lot."

    "I absolutely love Fort, I'm pretty sure that this is the only high school I would want to go to. There is some violence but it's only bad if you involve yourself in it. Overall the Fort is a great place to send your kids. I'll admit that some teachers seem like they don't want to be there, but the others can change your lives for the better."

    "Fort Rocks, I just graduated from there and whoever 'a student' is does not understand that they just split the high school and are now in a transition, with a relatively new principal and has about one forth of its teachers only being there for there second year, and this is because the new school that just opened 1 year ago needed many new and competent teachers to add to their faculty. ;) ok there 'a student'."
