As a student that has been attending Fountain-Fort Carson High School I have had nothing but an amazing experience attending this school. The peers and staff are all helpful and nice people. The teachers at Fountain-Fort Carson seem to really want to teach their students and really care about their education. Everything about this school is nothing but blessings I am amazed with the sports, clubs and the education. This school really cares for it’s students and if their doing fine at home along with doing well in class.
I love that there are some very involved teachers. I'm sure that every student says that about their own school, but I mean this almost to the most extreme meaning of the definition. There really are teachers who will squeeze themselves into your daily troubles. Some may find this troublesome, but I truly find this endearing. It is because of teachers like this that I push myself, that I was able to make it through some tough times, and to become the confident person I am today. I love the staff and the support every student can find within their schools. If I had to change one thing, it may be to allow the teachers to create their own teaching plans. Though there is a curriculum that needs to be adhered to, it would be extremely helpful if the teachers would allowed to at least teach the content in a manner of their choosing.
