A Note from the Superintendent

Dr Fritz
Anthony Wayne Local Schools Community,

My family and I became members of the Anthony Wayne community in 2003 when I accepted a position as an administrator in the district. We quickly understood the greatness of the school district and the community that so strongly supports its schools.

I am humbled to serve as superintendent of this school district since August of 2010. I am deeply appreciative as a parent and an educator of the quality of education that both my children received in this school district. The positive impact that AWLS educators and staff have had on my own children, and thousands of students over the years, is a testament to their hard work and dedication to the children of this community. 

Together we have shared outstanding success and built a tradition of excellence, and I look forward to continuing to partner with our community to empower students to be future ready.

Thank you and go Generals!

Dr. Jim Fritz,
