We send our heartfelt congratulations to three of our students for being recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program! The program has given these students a Letter of Commendation for outstanding performance on the Preliminary SAT and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test:

Those the program named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success. Well done!
At the end of last school year, our school submitted our application to the Arizona Educational Foundation for consideration as an A+ School of Excellence. Part of the application process included a site visit by a group of judges composed of educational leaders from around the state. This visit was to have taken place last spring but was postponed until the fall due to the pandemic. Our visit took place virtually over a two day period on September 22 and 23. The judges visited all of our classes virtually to witness the wonderful things occurring in our classrooms. Additionally, they met with a small group of students, as well as staff, and community members. After this lengthy process, we received a call from the lead judge on October 6. We’re happy to inform you that the Arizona Educational Foundation has designated Fountain Hill High School as an A+ School of Excellence! This is a tremendous honor for all of the hard work and dedication of so many, specifically our teachers, staff, students, and parents! We are currently organizing a ceremony to recognize this monumental achievement. Once we finalize the details, we will provide additional information.
