I cannot say enough good things about South Whitley Elementary. The teachers are simply amazing. They know every kid personally, and I don't mean the kids in their class. I mean each teacher seems to know each kid in each class! More than that I feel like every year my kids have teachers who know THEM, and know exactly what they need in order to succeed and grow. Very impressed. Its a very clean, modern school, has all the technology any of the Fort Wayne school would have.
