• We know parents and/or guardians are essential to the success of students, and we at Fort Dorchester High School want to work in partnership with parents and/or guardians because family engagement is an interactive process that bringsparents, family members, students, and education professionals together. Everyone works in partnership to aid the student's learning, healthy development, and well being. When families are in the driver's seat, families and educators can share their unique knowledge of the individual student they teach and care for in the community in which they live. Together we make a difference!
