Grateful for West Fargo’s superb education systemWe are writing to express our gratitude for the outstanding education our children have received while attending West Fargo High School. Our son, Thane, has recently been accepted, and will be attending, the United States Air Force Academy in the fall; our daughter, Paige, has enlisted in the Air Force and has passed the difficult examinations necessary for her to go into the intelligence field as a linguist.
Our children have worked hard to get where they are, and friends and family congratulate both them and us as parents. But we know that it was not just our family alone and want to give credit where credit is due. Without the outstanding faculty that challenged and pushed our students to levels they did not know they had inside them, we believe this would not have been possible.
We are not originally from this area and feel incredibly lucky that our children were able to attend West Fargo High and take advantage of the multitude of benefits that come along with this school – benefits that most if not all other schools in the state cannot or do not offer.
In the four years that we have attended parent-teacher conferences, we have always left the school amazed how deeply committed and passionate the faculty are, not only about the field in which they teach, but in the genuine commitment and concern that they showed in our children and their progress.
We could not have been more blessed. Words cannot begin to express the indebtedness we feel toward the faculty and staff. West Fargo High School has made a permanent and lasting effect on our children’s future; we cannot thank them enough.
