Small school with a great atmosphere. We will be moving out of state, and will be lucky if we find another school like this one for our child.
In the past few years, the music and drama programs at Forkner have become virtually non-existent, and science and subjects other than Lang. Arts & math, which are tested on the ca state test, are being neglected. Phys.Ed. Seems to be the exception. It is given more time on the daily classroom schedules than in most any other schools in the district. This school needs to reassess its curriculum and focus less on the two subjects the state is testing and more on the entire curriculm standards! My child was not taught one science standard last year and now is behind in science at the new school. I have moved this child to another, more well-rounded school that offers more music, science and extra-curricular activities and am planning to move the other as well! I have been quite disappointed with the administrator at this site.
We have 2 children attending Forkner Elementary and have been thrilled with the quality of the teachers and the level of education that our children are receiving. Children are challenged to their full potential in a safe and nurturing envoironment. As parents, we couldn't ask for more.
