Fountain Central was a small school within a close-knit community, but the small town vibes crush ambitions for furthering education. While the teachers do their best to teach the required state curriculum, there is little room for challenge and growth. Sports programs pull from a lot of the school's potential elsewhere.
I enjoyed the small school setting. Everybody knows everybody. Administration doesn't always make the best decisions, in my opinion, but that's part of it.
