I absolutely love Ft Lake! as for the above person (who is obviously a jessieville lacky) you are totally wrong. Ft Lake has plenty of parental involvement. this school is constantly doing things to help the less fortunate, victims of natural disasters, and those that live in poverty. they have an excellent sports progam, very good education and teachers. they believe in getting the entire student body, parents, and teachers involved in every aspect. as for the above mentioned football game (that ft lake won 45-0) all the kids got to play, including a special needs child that the team allows to play to help him feel more apart of the school. I have 2 children in Ft Lake and would never move them to another school, especially a close minded school such as jessieville

Ft Lake is a great school! it has great student, parent, teacher involvement. they have an excellent sports program and a great education. and its obvious that the "student/alumni" that posted before me is just a jessieville apologist..I would never recommend that anyone send their kids to jessieville!

It has been brought to my attention that Fountain Lake High School, has severely neglected a harmful situation with bullying. The admin and faculty have failed a female student who has been repeatedly bullied with pictures, posters, verbal, and cyberbullying on and off school property. The response to the complaint from the female victim was silence and no sense of urgency for her to expect an investigation, on who was to be held accountable. Period. This is extremely unacceptable, considering the bully dangers that have drawn awareness in the media..... In my opinion this system has failed this student victim with gross negligence.

a) The quality of academic programs is terrible, I think Jessieville is better. b)On a score from one to ten, their availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities gets a three. My reasoning is that at the Jessieville vs. Ft. Lake football game, the coach kept in the same players all through out the game, until the last two minutes, and when Ft. Lake plays any other schools in Basketball they cheat. c)The academic or athletic awards are dumb, at any school not just at Ft. Lake, they give awards to people for being better, but what about all the other kids? d)The facilities! They are never clean! Every time I went to use the restroom they were covered in dirt! I would not have a grown adult walk in to those restrooms, or the classrooms! e) The level of parent involvement is terrible! At Jessieville the parents are involved every step of the way, and at Ft. Lake their is no parent involvement what-so-ever. f) Okay, I told you what I thought about Ft. Lake, now go read about Jessieville!
