I ignored the negative reviews about Fortis and decided to work there anyway. Biggest mistake of my life. There is constant turnover, and the admin are very unsupportive of teachers. Violent behaviors are exhibited daily with no consequences, and most of the kids are extremely disrespectful to teachers and staff (not to mention complete lack of parent involvement). If you are a teacher, do not work here and if you are a parent whose child knows how to behave themself, don't send them here. However, if you are a parent whose child is violent and not accepted at any other school, they will fit right in at Fortis.
