My kids 4th grade class voted for a kid that was pretty shy but very nice kid for the principal award. It's given out each year during their promotion ceremony and is the highest honor. To me showed the kids vote for the one with that best fit that honor vs maybe the most"popular " kid. I was very proud of the surfers and it showed me the message is getting across to them.
Hands down the best public school we have ever experienced and it is up there with the best private school! We have been so fortunate to be a part of it. It is a school that you need to be involved in thoughas a parent to get the full experience. Parents are very welcoming though, so just jump in and enjoy it.
I was very pleased with not only the atmosphere but I liked both teachers involved with my grandchild she learned so much at that school. I am upset that the Little Rock School District would not automactically put her back in the same school despite her address. It was the as when she was in 4 year program. Excellent school. Felt good about security too. Loved it Love it. Thanks Forest Park Staff Love what you are doing keep it up.
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!!
Forest Park Elementary is definitely an exceptional school. The teachers are amazing, the principal is wonderful, and the parents are out of this world! The atmosphere is so conducive to learning! You can feel it when you enter the big wooden doors, and you just know you are in a good place. You hear learning going on and laughter as well. Values are still important here, and good behavior is expected and honored. Academics are top notch here at Forest Park. Check it out if you haven't already. You are in for a rare treat. :)
