With 4 children at the high school, middle school and elementary levels and 2 more to go through, we couldn’t be happier. They have programs to help our child who struggles with reading as well as a gifted/talented program for those who excel. The new administration (2 years young) value parent input more than previous years and are quick to respond to parent communication. The faculty from elementary to high school, nurture the entire child creating well rounded individuals equipped with the tools to tackle the real world. The district is adding more classes/clubs geared toward the trades industry which is absolutely AMAZING. The community rallies around the schools with the Fort Thomas Education Foundation distributing thousands upon thousands of donated dollars to enhance and enrich the education and availability of the arts for all the students.

The thing i like most about Fort Thomas independent schools is that every teacher and administrator really cares and focus' on each student. Our principal knows every single students name and what they do. I think that's really warming because it shows that it isn't just their job, it shows that they care. One thing i would change would probably be the way the sports program's are organized. Sometimes there is some confusion what goes on with the coaches and the school staff and it can get overwhelming and cause parents to complain about not knowing what is going on.
I went to Highlands High School and I would like to see the administration more organized, sometimes they make silly decisions. The counselors weren't able to help me very much in terms of my emotional struggles. They are only trained to help kids get scholarships and get them into college, which isn't for everybody. The whole school is geared towards the althetics and I am sad to say that those in althetics, especially the football team, get extra help with things. So it isn't really fair on me, a middle class child from a very small town. The kids are very nice there, but there are a lot of clicks that you find in high school. I never fit into the clicks so I only have a few friends from high school. I pretty much hated going to school there, but it is a good school.
