Our School Community
Core subjects, Gifted/Talented, Home Study, Summer School, Vocational Placement, Special Needs Instruction, etc. meet the needs of all of the students in the corporation. After school activities which include clubs, organizations and athletics help keep students very busy and productive.
Three elementary schools are located in Milford, North Webster and Syracuse, and each provides a solid educational beginning for students. The middle schools, containing Grades 6-8, continue student progress before the final four years at Wawasee High School. All three distinctly different levels of educational opportunities, elementary, middle school and high school, provide each student a strong foundation for adulthood.
We are proud of our school community and especially of our students and faculty who give their time and talents to make educational life in the Wawasee Community School Corporation an enjoyable experience.
The mission of Wawasee Community School Corporation is to create an academic, social, and physical environment that facilitates growth in each student toward and beyond mastery of state and national standards and achievement of personal goals set by the student in cooperation with staff and family. Staff, students, and their families commit themselves to utilizing student data and available resources to help the students reach those goals.
Staff members in our schools are highly-qualified in their areas of expertise to help students set and achieve high expectations. Staff demonstrate professionalism, courtesy, and respect in their interactions with students, families, other staff members, and the community and seek to involve all stakeholders in educational decisions. Staff communicate effectively and often with all stakeholders. Staff members' organization and passion for their profession and students create a positive, encouraging environment for both professional development and student success. Staff work with students to utilize, create, and integrate technology so that students are engaged and preparing to succeed in a global, digital world.
Families help students understand the importance of education and earning a high school diploma. Families encourage their students to read, complete homework, attend school, be respectful, be well-rested, and prepared for school each day. Families recognize staff members as a valuable resource and work with them to support academic improvement and classroom behavior expectations.
Students display positive attitudes with the help of teachers, families, and other adults, thereby taking responsibility for their own education and actions. This responsibility manifests itself through good attendance, strong organizational skills, positive interaction with others, and attainment of academic goals. Students are self-motivated, actively engaged in classroom activities, and committed to life-long learning. Students model good citizenship through caring, trustworthiness, and respect for themselves and others.
