Fort Mill High School is a unique school. It has its fair share of annoying people that only want to start drama, but it also has a sense of community. There is a very wide range of different extracurriculars and sports. Even if you think you're not good at sports, you can try out for JV. Also, if you like being creative and enjoy RPG video games, come check out Tabletop Gaming Club! I'll be the sort-of president for the 2018-2019 school year. Our former leader of the club, Mr. Loxton, even admits this school is unique in a good way, and he's from Australia.

The students, teachers and administrators are all very involved with the school. The atmosphere is awesome here. There are many opportunities for after school activities like clubs, sports, and even academics. Fort Mill has a lot to offer, and overall the school has just been a great experience with great people!
Many students transfer from other schools to go to Fort Mill, and the reason why is obvious. Fort Mill is a great school, with academics like I've never seen in my life. The courses are vigorous, (and very hard, if I'm being honest) but they do a great job setting students up for success in the future. Every year, each student creates an individualized graduation plan with their guidance counselor, which helps a lot when it comes to college. You can really tell that administration wants to do what is best for their students. The one thing that holds me back from giving Fort Mill a four or even five star review is that lack of diversity. Everybody at this school is white. Even spirit week has grown to become culturally insensitive at times. Besides that, though, I really do like going to Fort Mill and I am so thankful that I'm able to go to a school that can give me an education as good as the one that I'm getting.
