Fountain Hill is quiet and shy, yet has so much to offer. There is a wonderful elementary school that I went to when I was younger and I know that the kids attending Fountain Hill Elementary love it. Across the street is St. Ursula's Parish, the local church I belong to. The church runs what is called CCD or Confraternity of Christian Doctrine program, which gives religious education classes to people within and outside Fountain Hill. The hospital is the heart of the town and it becomes very colorful during the holiday season.
