Open Quote South Side has been described as a school with low standards. The city of Fort Wayne finds it to be one of the worst schools in the city. I find it very sad. All the news that is broadcasted out into the public gives South Side a rough and "dangerous" vibe. There's rarely any good that is brought up upon this school. I am currently a junior and I'm apart of the class of 2016. Throughout my three years of attending the school, I feel as if I have received a huge benefit from just receiving my education at South Side. I'm involved in the International Baccalaureate program. My school is the only one in the entire city of Fort Wayne that offers that program. It is a high level, rigorous program intended for students who want to go above and beyond the academic curriculum. I feel proud. Many citizens of the city probably even have no idea what the program is.
My school is a place worth looking into and joining in. I don't enjoy the worries that my friends from other schools have towards me. They have this idea in their head that one day I'm not going to make it out of my school safely. I think to myself, there is absolutely no need for me to feel scared as I attend my school, because in the end I know that I'm entering a safe learning environment as it should be. I'm glad of it.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
