My grandaughter attends O.H. Elementary in Foreman. I love the family atmosphere. Everyone on staff is always welcoming and friendly. She received the best education in Kindergarten. Mrs. Lisa is amazing! This year she continues to love first grade. Mrs. Ellis is doing a super job as well. The principal, secretary, Pat T., Kathy H., Mrs. Becky Erman are amazing and help all of the children reach their potential. There is not one person on staff that is not wonderful. I would not want my grandaughter any place but Foreman! Keep up the great job!!!

This little home town school is above average. The teachers care beyond resposibilty and the principal is wonderful. It is well structured and is developing more every year. I think once the state of Arkansas embraces a better teaching curriculum (which they are working towards) small schools like this one will be hard to beat.

Its comments like the last one that confuse me.It takes testing and parent permission to be placed in Special Ed.If there is such a problem with it why allow your child to be placed in the program?The school can not just place a child in special Ed without both of these things happening first. I have found that the teachers go above and beyond what alot for teachers normally would to teach even the hard to teach kids.The special ed program is wonderful and everyone is very friendly.Problems are taken care of right away if one would arise.Their teaching methods are up to date and creative.It is like any small town school.Very close and personal .

My son has been unable to pass the grade that he is in because he has been unable to be taught to read. He is just shoved to the the special ed class so he doesn't have to be taught, also my other child has teachers that instead of helping with problems with reading just put the lessons on tape so they don't have to mess with teaching. No child should just be skipped over. There is hardly ever any homework sent home. Daily my children say that they really haven't learned anything. I don't believe they are being challeneged just being treated like a number and paycheck.

My kids have grown so much since being in Foreman Elementary school.The speech and special ed programs are wonderful . Since my children have been involved in the school system I have met some of the best teachers and wonderful staff and I would highly recommend this school and its teachers to any parent.

My step-daughter goes to this school, and half the time she doesn't even have to do any work to get straight A's. The level of education for these kids is very poor. 5th grade has almost no home work. If she does have homework it is not graded and returned. She just gets a grade for completing to work.Something should be done in these shcools so kids from Arkansas can even try to be on the same level as kids in other states.
