About Fort Mill Schools


The Fort Mill School District’s commitment to its mission, “Children First, Every Day,” is at the heart of each decision made by staff, teachers, and trustees. We strive to ensure that programs, personnel and curriculum are selected with students’ best interests in mind. 

Putting “Children First, Every Day” has created a tradition of excellence and measurable success in our schools. The Fort Mill School District is one of the top performing districts in the state, based on performance data. 

The performance of Fort Mill’s two high schools further demonstrates the quality of a Fort Mill School District education. High school students from the district score well above state and national averages on the SAT and ACT exams. Additionally, our high school students have the opportunity to engage in rigorous coursework, with 17 AP courses available to them, and 85 percent of students scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP exams. In 2017, the senior classes of Fort Mill and Nation Ford high schools earned a combined total of more than $30 million in scholarships. 

We balance our commitment to academics with a dedication to arts and athletics programming, creating well rounded students with varied interests.

The Fort Mill School District is geographically one of the smallest in the state but has the fastest growing student population, serving more than 14,500 students in 16 schools. Though the district is rapidly growing, our schools remain the heart of the town, providing a quality education for students while also playing an integral role in enhancing community life. Our district contributes to the quality of life in Fort Mill by providing exceptional academic programs for its students and opportunities for community entertainment and enrichment through its arts and athletic programs.
