Fort Thomas Independent Schools Reviews

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.

Fort Thomas Schools really know how to push the boundaries of education. They fought for us to have state of the art technology such as one to one laptops. They hire teachers that not only are skilled in their field but also know how to nurture students in order to achieve the most they can. Also they make opportunities for every type of student no matter the interest. we have countless clubs, sports, and art programs available and therefore you can develop talent in any discipline. The academics are probably the element of the school that shines most, as a school should. As students we are pushed to take several AP courses and our pass rates usually never dip below 70% which means they create an atmosphere that is challenging and also sets us up for college classes and beyond. I am proud to be a bluebird.
I had a great 4 years creating new friendships, learning to the highest capacity, and preparing for the future. Highlands High School did a great job in shaping me to become the person I am today!
