Fort Hill High School Reviews

Even though I said in the last review that some of the teachers sucked I've had fun at this school. The band is fun to be in. The football games are fun to go to. I have my friends here at fort hill. I would choose this school over and over again because this is where my little group of friends came together. One at a time. First me, then my friend Corey, then kaleb, then Kaine. I've met amazing people here. Also through this school I've been able to go to the wvu honor band. I've been able to experience things here that a lot of other schools don't do.
Review Fort Hill High School
Fort Hill is a school full of pride and tradition that the community loves and supports to the best of their abilities. Each student that has ever attended Fort Hill has left an impact in some way, whether it be on a specific teacher, organization or group, or even just the shear memory of them walking through the halls. No one is easily forgotten at Fort Hill, everyone one is given equal opportunities to shine and be recognized for their talents or special interests. Although there are many things to be improved yet, I highly recommend Fort Hill to anyone who may be transferring in, whether it be student or staff. Everyone has your best interest in mind and strives to help you reach your fullest potential.
Overall good experience. Teachers were decent. The sports programs are excellent. Although football gets all the exposure. My biggest complaint is that I've seen too many seniors that have played sports and after the season was over no one gave a darn about them their success or failure.
