It’s what every parent wants – a learning experience that engages their child, supports his or her interests and opens pathways to success. The Fort Worth Independent School District is fulfilling that wish with new programs and schools that will lead the nation in transforming the classroom experience as we know it. Gone is the old “one size fits all” model of learning. The District is ushering in a new era with winning opportunities for every student at every skill level. Simply put, we are giving students and their parents the power of choice. It is the power to choose courses of study based on personal interests and passions. It is the power to take ownership in the education experience. And it is the power that comes with being engaged in learning and excited about the future.
