For the fourth year in a row, Fort Thomas Independent Schools was ranked the Best School district in Kentucky by Niche.com.
Dr. Karen Cheser, Superintendent of Fort Thomas Independent Schools, said she is proud but not surprised considering the top-notch school community.
“We are so thrilled for and proud of the wonderful people that make up our school community in Fort Thomas for such a distinguished honor," said Dr. Cheser. "This is a special place filled with hard workers and high achievers. Niche.com encompasses all of our accolades, social media and reviews, so a top ranking in Kentucky truly could not have happened without everyone's contribution: teachers, students and our entire community.”
Cheser said that Fort Thomas Independent Schools is fully committed to developing the whole person, as evidenced by the creation and implementation of "Portrait of a Graduate".
These competencies--Courageous Leader, Empathetic Collaborator, Global Communicator, Curious and Critical Thinker and Creative Problem Solver--are points of emphasis both in and out of the classroom and are designed to prepare students to flourish after graduation.
Additionally, they earned the top ranking in the safest school category and were in the top four of every category.
