Worst school ever only cares about the football program.

While Fort Hill is considered to be a football school because of the quality football program, it is also a great academic school. They offer a variety of courses to include honors and AP courses. The teachers care about the students. There are many extracurricular activities available to help create a well rounded high school experience.

The school is only worried about the footbal program and not teaching the student body. Fort Hill is now considered nothing more than a bunch of racists, and I am ashamed to have my children attend.
