Great school! I wish we had a few more traditions though! We don't have a homecoming dance! Our new principal is pretty good, academics come first but I also wish they would recognize our sports more. For example, girls and boys lacrosse teams made it to the state championship and all there was was a little "congratulations" over the intercom.

Fort Mill has created an environment, in which pushes me to strive to be the best I can be. Faculty and staff ensure that students at Fort Mill are prepared for life after high school, whether that be in sports or academics. Fort Mill has been a highly ranked high school in the nation, and many often move down to Fort Mill due to the amazing learning experience at Fort Mill. School spirit is amazing, and I will forever be a Yellow Jacket!
Fort Mill High School is in York County, South Carolina. It is a National Blue Ribbon School, and its students represent that achievement. Most teachers are very encouraging and helpful, especially the English and social studies departments. There are a variety of clubs, all of which do very well at competitions (such as Student News Broadcasting, Model UN, Mock Trial). Most sports do well also. There is lots of school spirit, especially when facilitated by administration and teachers. Technology usage is present, as students are able to use laptops in some classes. Theater productions are very professional and talented. Food is good, including healthy and vegetarian options. The school is clean and well-kept. There is an on-site police officer to ensure safety and aid security. The majority of students attend college afterward, including lots of highly competitive universities and a handful of Ivy Leagues. The AP and Honors programs are rigorous without being overbearing.
