My overall experience at Fort Hill is nothing less than spectacular. From the beginning of my freshman year, I have been welcomed and embraced by the Fort Hill community and have always felt the support of my team members, fellow students, coaches and teachers.

Fort Hill is a school full of pride and tradition that the community loves and supports to the best of their abilities. Each student that has ever attended Fort Hill has left an impact in some way, whether it be on a specific teacher, organization or group, or even just the shear memory of them walking through the halls. No one is easily forgotten at Fort Hill, everyone one is given equal opportunities to shine and be recognized for their talents or special interests. Although there are many things to be improved yet, I highly recommend Fort Hill to anyone who may be transferring in, whether it be student or staff. Everyone has your best interest in mind and strives to help you reach your fullest potential.
