Convenience: 6

Ease of use: 7

Bonus Features: 5 (double fountain)

Total: 66/100

Tucked in a light-traffic, but relevant hallway, this double fountain has strong pressure and good temperature. However, the inconsistent flow and lackluster bonus features (only a double fountain) prevent this fountain from achieving greatness.

 

Locker Bay (Junior/Senior)

Consistency: 9

Pressure: 6

Aesthetic: 7

Temperature: 9

Cleanliness: 9

Convenience: 8

Ease of use: 10

Bonus Features: 10 (double fountain & water bottle)

Total: 82/100

Located in the busiest hallway on the third floor, this fountain has it all: great taste, temperature and a water bottle filler. Unfortunately, crowds around the fountain could mean your hydration stop takes a few minutes.

2nd Floor

Math Hall

Thickness: 7

Consistency: 6

Pressure: 4

Cleanliness: 6

Located in a busy hallway on the second floor, the math hallway water fountain is so close to the bathroom that you can smell the musty, distinctive smell as you drink that bland water that can maybe pass as the toilet water. Who knows? Maybe they have some sort of filter and reuse the toilet water for the fountain. If you’re looking for a fountain on the second floor, we do not recommend drinking from the fountain in the math hallway.

North Gym

Thickness: 8

Consistency: 4

Pressure: 3

Aesthetic: 5

Taste: 4

Temperature: 5

Cleanliness: 6

Convenience: 6

Ease of use: 7

Bonus Features: 5 (Push Button on faucet)

Total: 46/100

This fountain is a flashback of the past, specifically to the 2000s with its pushback fountain. However, it’s not chic and sleek anymore since we are in 2018, so it lacks vintage attraction. Not only that, but it also has a tinge of a metallic taste. If you want a good refresher after a workout in the North Gym, you should avoid this one (you’d be better off bringing a water bottle from home).

If you need some inspiration for your next Ceramics project, check out this water fountain. It looks like a ceramic bathtub with just a single faucet on the left and a push button on the right. The only good thing about this one is that it tastes better than it looks, but then again, it doesn’t taste that good.

Locker Bay (Sophomores/Freshmen)

This is definitely a prominent water fountain since this is next to the underclassmen locker bay. Not only is it convenient and popular, but it provides a refreshing taste that tingles your taste buds. It even has a water bottle filler so you can stay hydrated on the go. Also, if you are in need of an energy boost after sports or P.E., this lovely fountain is a mere 30 seconds from the main gym.

This fountain is stellar compared to all the other competition. It’s got it all: the taste, the look, the feel. It only makes sense as to why there are so many students drinking from it. It’s a given that if someone refers to the “good water fountain,” they are referring to this one. Kudos to whoever made this refresher.

1st Floor

Music Hallway

Thickness: 8

Consistency: 9

Pressure: 7

Aesthetic: 10

Taste: 8

Temperature: 10

Cleanliness: 10

Convenience: 7

Ease of use: 6

Bonus Features: 5

Total: 80/100

The standout feature of the music hallway’s fountain is its cleanliness, looking as though it could have been installed just yesterday. No matter its installation date, they must have thought they were installing it in an elementary school because this fountain seems lower than the rest, requiring much more stooping to get a drink. Otherwise, great all-a-rounder.

Cafeteria

Located in the busiest room in the school, this fountain has seen some use. While it has all the features of a great fountain, its lukewarm temperature and grimy appearance make this bubbler a little less appealing.

Boys Locker Room

Thickness: 7

Consistency: 4

Pressure: 9

Cleanliness: 10

Out of the way, secluded and run down, on the surface the boy’s locker room fountain doesn’t have much going for it. However, this fountain is known for its legendary temperature, its water so cool and refreshing you might forget you’re standing outside of the nasty teenage boys’ locker room.

It takes a real explorer to find this fountain, and the school clearly knows this, as this fountain seemingly hasn’t been updated in decades. It looks a bit like a garbage-can was nailed to the wall, and its peeling paint and dinged exterior isn’t doing the fountain any favors. Its ease of use is abysmal due to its single hard-to-press button that is inconveniently located on the top of the fountain. With all that aside, the water itself isn’t that bad, but we still wouldn’t recommend this fountain unless you’re really down for some (((vintage aesthetics))).
