    I sent my children to South Wayne when we first moved to the Fort Wayne area. I am glad they only attended from April until June. My son was bullied constantly by students and staff alike. They did nothing to challenge my three children in the areas they excel but instead focused on their weak points without actually helping only criticizing. Plus two of my children's teachers did not want my input nor did they try to listen to anything I had to say on my kids. I am glad that I have found a school better suited to my children and myself.

    The staff of South Wayne is totally committed to the students of the school. They go above and beyond on a daily basis. I am proud to be a part of a great school. Caryl Ball teacher
