National Blue Ribbon School. The teachers and parents work hard and support students academically and emotionally. Forest Park state test scores rank among the highest in the state.
The head of the PTA this year has a Harvard Law Degree but she's a 'stay-at-home' mom! That tells you something about the quality of the parent participation. Great teachers, great parents equal great students. The school will receive an award from the President in a few days, only 200 elementary schools in the whole country received the award, (That includes all private schools too!) It can't get any better than Forest Park!!
I went to this school and now my grandchildren attend. I love this school, the parental involvement, the principal and the teachers really care about their students.
The course studies are excellent. There are some fair and impartial teachers. Good PTA. Children are very impressionable in these years. All children are to be treated equal.
This is a great school. My daughter has been there for one year. We are satisfied comparing the other public schools. The principal is a very nice lady - I misses her. I am thinking to move back there just for my daughter education. It is not easy to find a very good school. We miss Little Rock.
We moved here from another district in Arkansas, and this school is amazing! The teachers really care about students, the PTA is amazing and gets many things done for the school. There is a real community feel here, and you can feel the school pride! This year turned my son around after several years of not liking school. Highly recommend it!
Awesome school! Great principal who encourages teachers to work hard for the success of every student!
Great PTA!! The teachers are wonderful and very devoted to making Forest Park great. Warm atmosphere! Just a happy place to be!
