What is Fort Hayes High School really About? You might be wondering what kind of question is that. But let me elaborate, Fort Hayes is about educating kids,but theirs more to it then that. Fort Hayes is about not only caring about yourself but caring about others as well. It thought us how to remain humble,and also be the best we were meant to be.
One thing i will always remember is how the teachers not only cared for our education, they cared about our physical,mental,and emotional well being.They would always give to the ones that didn't have any food at home. They understood that not all of us is in the best homes and environment,and they would do anything in their power to help those in need.
Most importantly they were always supportive. They never gave up on their students,and what they wanted to achieve. This is what fort Hayes is really about.This is why I am proud to be one of their students.

Fort Hayes is a school that can provide amazing opportunity if you are interested in blending the arts into your education. However, the student body contains a larger than average number of very unmotivated and entitled kids. This School is definitely one that requires effort if you truly want the full experience.
When I first started to intend Fort Hayes my freshman year I thought I was going to be lonely and uncomfortable due to not knowing anyone but, the people who went and go there now are very friendly and it was very natural to make friends without realizing it. The school also tries to make everyone feel like they are apart of a big family, they make sure they host events that everyone can come to and make sure to keep us all posted when something happens. The teachers also help with not just getting the seniors prepared for the real world but they also make sure ALL of their students including the sophomores, juniors and freshman are learning and are able to leave the classroom with something that can be valuable to them everyday. As a student I would refer someone to go to Fort Hayes to gain the experience of an Art's school on a college style campus but they would definitely have to be ready for a workout with walking up the flights of stairs everyday- no elevators :)
