My daughter goes to Fort Hayes and I love the level of academic expectations. She is required to work and must work hard. The only area that is difficult is the lack of extracurricular activities. They need to focus on bringing more activities that are social as well as academic.
My daughter graduated from Fort Hayes Education Center for grades 9-12. She loved the school and her teachers. The teachers and guidance counselor were wonderful and encoraged her to be all that she can be. she graduated in 2003, second in her class as a salutatorian. The teachers and gudiance counseler encouraged her to take advantage of the post secondary education and she did. She attended Columbus State Community College while in high school and this allowed her to enter college with 29.5 credit hours. She is now in her second year of college and is a Junior by credit hours. So this is a wonderful school that has wonderful opportunities in academics and arts.
My daughter went to Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center for grades 9-12 and is now in college. I thought the school tried very hard to provide an education in both the arts and in academics, and encourage students to excel in high school. They were also very good about supplying post-secondary education counseling and helping students apply for colleges, and obtain scholarships, grants and financial aid. I would recommend this school highly.
This school is outstanding because of its combination of college prep curriculum and vocational training. The school is also very parent friendly in that when you child is a student there, you will have access to their grades via the internet. Whenever a grade is updated for my son, I receive an email notification. Being a single mother, it is very difficult at times, to take off of work to visit the school physically and being able to keep up with my son's grades and school activities via email is wondreful! I am also able to communicate with his teachers via email!
