I enjoyed the small community that the school fostered, everybody knew everybody, but what I would like to see change most is how teachers carried their classrooms. Some of my teachers were great and promoted discussion, active learning, and engagement. Although, I would say a majority of teaching was just handing out worksheets or assigning reading without much meaning behind it other than knowing material.

Fountain Hills High School really does have the best interests in its students at heart. The administration want all of the students in that school to succeed no matter what, and truly put in the work to make sure that everyone can graduate and go to college. They also do their absolute best to make sure that it is a safe and sanitary learning environment, and have incredible teaching staff.
While the teachers at the school are very good and are determined to help the students, the communication of the other staff and office are atrocious. This caused many miscommunications throughout my High school career, causing much more trouble than what should occur in a well organized school
