Fort Thomas Independent Schools Reviews

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!
It is not an average high school because everyone here is different and have a specific mission to accomplish. The school is located in a small town, but the students are exceptionally hard-working. With the variety of classes offered it allows students to find their passion. Also, the curriculum prepares students for college classes by the rigor of the courses.
