A message from our Principal - Mr. Marvin LewisWelcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year! On behalf of our teachers, staff, and administration, I want you to know that we are excited to share the upcoming school year with each of you.
As you walk the halls at Future Forward @ Washington Square, you will see industry professionals teaching hands-on, real world skills in Welding, Construction, Diesel Technology, EMT, Firefighting, CSI, Law Enforcement, and Sports Medicine. Students are connected to learning in their career pathway while having the ability to not only earn college credit but industry relevant certifications.
I’m excited as we continue to expand our programming, specifically in the area of Sports Medicine with academic credit in English and Mathematics credit in Construction. We continue to work with our industry partners to expand our work based learning opportunities in the areas of internships and job shadowing. Our school continues to add additional industry partners to expand opportunities for our students.
I am honored to lead our school as principal, and I love seeing the passion our students develop learning high level skills in their career pathway. When I'm not at Washington Square supporting our students and staff, you can find me restoring classic muscle cars and spending time with my family and friends.
I look forward to connecting with our students, parents, and community in the school year ahead. It is a great day (and exciting time!) to be part of Future Forward @ Washington Square.
