I lived in Fort Mitchell for 13 years, and I loved it. My family moved down to Fort Mitchell before I was going to start Kindergarten, so I lived there for my entire school career, graduating from Beechwood High School as a 13-year senior. It was a small town feeling without having to know everyone at the grocery store. I went to Beechwood High School which is a P-12 school, and that is the best part of the community. You get to know your classmates as you move through school and aren't split up when moving on to middle and high school. The strength of the bond throughout the community from Beechwood is amazing. I met many amazing people during my time at Beechwood. The town itself is quiet, but with so many big cities rather close, like Cincinnati, it made the option to do fun things limitless.

Ft. Mitchell is an amazing town to live in. Plenty of local businesses and parks to enjoy unique experiences close to home. With safe streets, there is never a worry about walking anywhere. Also, one of the advantages of Ft Mitchell, is it's location. It close enough to a large city for short commute times, but far enough away to have a nice suburb feel.
Fort Mitchell is a classic American suburb. The school is excellent, one of the best in Kentucky. Not a place for adventurous spirits, however. A great place to raise a family!
