Fountain Hills Middle School Ratings & Reviews
Homes values are falling like a rock here due to the condition of the public schools and lack of funding for education in this area. No teacher to be found for my child's class other than a long term sub who holds down the fort. We are on our way out and looking for a new place to call home.
I have had 2 children attend Fountain Hills Middle School and both had great experiences. The teachers were helpful and engaging, the classes were challenging and we love the small community atmosphere! There are many clubs to choose from, honors classes, band, and sports which make it beneficial for an "all around" school experience.
As a parent of a current student, we LOVE Fountain Hills Middle school. Great teachers, small town feel and great clubs gives my child an opportunity to explore so many new experiences. We are in a rebuilding time and heading in an even better direction. I bought my home in Fountain Hills because we love the school district. Best choice we ever made.
I want to like the school, I just can't. I agree with other reviews that there is little leadership. Sixth grade ended this year with no recognition for honor roll, millionaire reader, or principal's list. These kids work hard all year to earn good grades and exceed goals, but the leaders failed to reward those accomplishments, citing they didn't have time to fit it in to the schedule. You had an entire school year to plan! Same as every other year. Excuses. Instead, in individual classes, some teachers gave awards for "most humorous, spirited, etc." Horrid leadership when subjective traits are rewarded instead of earned goals. Epic fail. On so many levels. The principals aren't worth their salt. I like many of the teachers, some shine brighter than others. If you're considering moving to Fountain Hills, don't base it on anything to do with education. It isn't valued here.
Coming from a bigger district, this school is a breath of fresh air. As an employee, I feel incredibly supported by my administration. Be it the principal, vice principal, counselor, or technology and maintenance, someone is always able to help. Everyone that works at this school, works so hard to make it the safest environment possible. The ample options of extracurricular activities allows students to find an outlet that best fits them. Each grade offers honors classes that foster student learning and pushes them to their fullest potential. It is unfortunate that people have had unfavorable experiences in this district, but many people have had great experiences as well. I am very thankful that I am able to spend part of my career in such a great school. I am so proud to say that I am a Fountain Hill Falcon.
