Displayed from: Mar 02, 2018 , until: May 02, 2018

After consideration of all viewpoints, FWCS has decided to continue its practice of offering honors courses. FWCS will evaluate all honors course curriculum for consistency across different courses and schools, as well as criteria for enrollment in honors courses. The goal of the FWCS Board of School Trustees and Administration has been, and will continue to be, ensuring all students are educated to high standards. To that end, we will examine how we can provide access to advanced-level work to more students. The FWCS Board hopes that both students and parents accept the challenge of continual involvement in education issues throughout the District.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana. FWCS proudly allows families to choose any of its 50 schools through its successful school-choice program creating diversity in each school, including some with more than 75 languages spoken. FWCS offers seven magnet schools focusing on areas such as science and math, communication, fine arts or Montessori at the elementary and middle school level. In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
