Fort Wayne Community Schools Reviews

I enjoyed attending South side Highschool. The international baccalaureate classes were challenging and rewarding. The teachers cared about our well-being and were always willing to help us improve in our studies. At the time of my graduation in 2013 there were not many programs to help seniors prepare for college. Now in 2019 as my sibling graduates, they have a greater allocation of time and support for seniors.

I think that Fort Wayne Community Schools have okay schools for the most part. The teachers are mostly well versed and hired well. However, the grading scale is not acceptable and does not prepare students for college. Also, schools other than elementary need to teach children about more creative options if they so choose.
FWCS lets students choose where they want to attend school. They offer all types of programs to fit every student's needs. Compassionate and passionate teachers, lots of extra-curricular programs, great schools.
