The athletics department is one of the good things about Fort Hill besides the studies. Each sport is acells in what they do. You can't go anywhere in Cumberland without knowing something about Forthill Football,Basketball,Volleyball, Soccer, or tennis.

I would recommend Fort Hill High School because they have caring teachers who will try and help your child if they are having trouble. They also have great activities for the kids. There are many clubs for the parents to get involved with.
