Southwest Allen County Schools Reviews

Southwest Allen County Schools has changed my life ever since I began going to school here as early as Kindergarten. As the years have come and gone, I have built great relationships with both my teachers and fellow students. Currently, Homestead High School has been preparing me very well for my future education. I have been enrolled in Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, and Honors classes in order to ready myself to continue my education beyond high school.
Review Southwest Allen County Schools
As I attended Homestead Senior Highschool, I was quite grateful for the educational experience I received. I feel that in the Fort Wayne area, Homestead was by far the superior educational option. Personally, I felt as if the teachers and staff made a significant effort to cater to each individual student to promote success.
I love the school district. I do believe that the district could use some more clarification of different policies that they have. I participate in the senior experience at Homestead and it is the best decision I have ever made. The freedom that they give us as seniors. With this experience they are helping prepare me for my journey in college. This experience is something that I would recommend to every underclass men and for other school districts to try for their seniors.
