This school was a total disappointment. The principal is low class and is not a good role model. There are nearly no windows in this school and it does feel like an institution/ prison for that reason. My son was a good student but the teachers have been either odd, treating kids unfairly by picking ...  Read more

I am a student at FHMS and I have to say this school is pretty nice when you get used to it. When I first moved here last school year (about four years ago) I had come from a small charter school with a homelike feel to it, where everyone knew each other and treated each other like family.

My school is Fountain Hills Middle School and I find that this school out performs Anasazi. My kids were in Anasazi from K-5 and while it has many positives I found that F.H.M.S.'s personal responsibility policies outperformed Anasazi.

Worst school ever, my child is being "bullied" by the so called popular kids in the school, the principal doesn't take role on anything, the school staff is out of order. This school is a big disappointment.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Being that Fountain Hills is a fairly new city in Arizona, I am VERY disapointed by the education and habbits of the students here.

I am a seventh grade student at this school, overall I would recommend it. It definently isn't where you would go if you want to get into Harvard or Standford, but expectations are high. They have different levels to fit everybody, they have traditional classes and honors classes, and even only two categories, ...  Read more
