PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE
From the moment students enter FWCS, they will see themselves in the Portrait of an Explorer (elementary), Portrait of a Connector (middle school) and Portrait of a Graduate (high school). These posters are displayed in all of our schools and were developed by more than 200 educators, parents, students and community leaders. The keys to success feature the skills, traits and knowledge a student graduating from FWCS should have to be successful in a career in Northeast Indiana.
