Unlike most parents think this schooks isnt as great as you think. I underatan that because you dont spend 9 monthis in school each year,but lii tell you for the 2012-15 school year thatthis school deserved at least a D. The clubs, programs,and education are petty good but thats it. The school has many kids that are being peered pressured like crazy. Rumors spread and there are alot of drama. The bullies themseves said they are mean and know it bit wont stop. And sone teachers dont reaaly grade anything,but most are good.You can send a child here but be carefull about who they hang out with.

Truly a "Great School"!! Many activities and clubs for students. Safe and nurturing educational environment for students to grow and learn during this important period in middle schoolers' lives-- transitioning from elementary to high school. A wonderful school that prepares 6th-8th graders for the academic challenges awaiting them in high school and college.

As a student soon exiting this school, I can say that this school has to get it's priorities straight. The administration cares more about students wearing a solid color collared shirt, than all the students who walk to the park across the school every morning. Let's also note how the school only has 3 officers who barely do anything. Our administration is trying to make this school into some preppy private school, when we can't even get funding. The only good thing about the school is the drama club that's going to nationals. I got a detention at this school once for rolling my eyes at an administrator, which was "disrespectful", coming from the administrator who yells in a microphone at the students during lunch when all they do is simply stand up. Our new principal was only involved with things at this school for the first week. This school lacks individuality, especially with the uniform policy. In my opinion, this school tries too hard to look like a perfect school, when 75% of the kids are apathetic to whatever's going on at the school. I just can't wait for next week to pass already, so I can finally be out of that school. Maybe next year they'll get red of some of their bs.

My granddaughter was assaulted 3 times in this school by kids she had no prior contact with this is unacceptable and the police will do nothing. My granddaughter advised the school security people of a threat and no action was taken.

Every school has it's good and bad points. It's up to the students to do the right thing. By middle school kids should know right from wrong. Parents need to keep in close communication with the school. Teachers are not there to babysit, but to help the kids along. If a teacher is uncaring they need to find another career. We parents are entrusting our most valuable asset to the school, our children. We expect nothing less than your best. We have had three kids over the years attend FGMS. It was not always perfect, but what is.

Two of my kids attended FGMS, another is in 7th Grade and next year my last kid is coming in, I know that nothing is perfect but FGMS comes very close to it, Teachers are great, but you have to be a good parent and work with them to help your kids. We're always trying to blame someone else for our own mistakes, if you can't be there for your child why should the teachers. I've had to deal with the Assistant Principals and they help you out with your kids. To me FGMS is way a better school than Coral Springs Charter, and contrary to the other lady's comment FGMS is more informative the CSC.

This school is a joke. My daughter was bullied. They have FCAT prep on weekends so you will pass to make them look good. They are not informative at all. I had to go to the school almost weekly. Being that we are in law enforcement the school known as Forest Glen Correctional Facility for all the crime they have on a daily basis. I switched our daughter out and found the Charter Schools were better communicators as well as lower crime stats.

I honestly LOVED everything about this school. It brought amazing memories, the best of friends, lots of education, and amazing teachers. Honestly, people don't understand how hard it is to teach and i give all these administrators and teachers credit for their amazing work. I mean, yes ; Every middle school has a few fights during the year, some kind of drama, and some not-so-good teachers. But come on, give 'em all credit 'cause we're still teenagers. That's how we learn. So yes, this school was the best. I miss you FGMS.

This school is not as bad as everyone says. In my opinion if you stay away from all of the drama its not that horrible. I attended FGMS last year for 6th grade. It wasn't the greatest year ive had but ok. My favorite teachers were Mrs.Greco-Murillo,Mrs.Johnson,and Ms.Skeete. This is not a great school but if you keep to yourself its really not bad.

This school is anything but great. I agree with the other parent, if you care= trouble for you and your child. The administrators do not listen and are rude. If the teachers are wrong, good luck! Your child will not get a good education here.

For the parent that cannot get anyone at FGMS to address his/her concerns, email the Area Superintendent and Area Director. They are ultimately responsible for FGMS. Unfortunately many of the parents at this school are not paying attention to what is going on at FGMS and those that do are not welcomed. Unless, of course, you believe everything you are told and don't question anything, The atmosphere at this school is very hostile and I am not just referring to the students.

If you would like your child to continue learning how to read, I would suggest not sending them to this school. I have written letters to the Language Arts teacher and the Assistant Principal and did not receive a single reply. I have made several attempts to get in contact with Mr. McDermott but I'm always getting referred to Mr. C. I hope I have not damaged my childs education by sending her to this horrible school. This school has an A FCAT rating but if you knew what the FCAT scored on for the different grade levels you would see this is a joke of a rating.

I agree. I can tell you first hand that this school is the worst! I hear of fights going on way too often. There are a few good teachers at the school, however; if you value your children's lives & education, I wouldn't allow them to step one foot in that school. Extremely poor communication from the administrators. You never see the principal. If have nice things to say about the school, sure you can get him on the phone, but if you have concerns or complaints, I wouldn't waste my time waiting on a call back from him.

I attended this school for my 8thgrade year. The teachers are far by the rudest. Adminstrators are assigned to their own grades by yet they are never where they are suppose to be. Teachers alwways have an attitude and pick on students! They have their favorites who can get away with murder. Teachers are often noisy. But 2 positive things are that the school has nicefunctions and I learned alot. I was on team 8c and every teacher was rude! especially my language arts teacher who could care less.Overall excellent academically and socially but terrible in everything else!

I LOVE this school, I go there and I couldnt be any happier! The lunch needs a great amount of improvement however, and it could become a little safer. He was in the advanced program though! The non advanced program is the dangerous parts, because those teachers dont care! Im in 7th grade and its awesome! To all you haters, forest glen rocks! Best staff too!

I currently attend Forest Glen.I am in the 8'th grade.I have no idea how I got here.the teachers at Forest Glen pay no attention to us students and we can tell that they don't want to be there. The teachers do not listen to us.We ask a question and they just push it off.This school really needs to get it in line. They spend more money on the electives than the regular classes.It pays more attention to the teachers than the students.The teachers should be fair to all students.They play the favorite card and let them get away with everything.It is unfair.Also, where is the principal?! You barely see him around the school.I don't even think he is there most of the time.He should be taking care of the school, not sitting at home on his couch.

My son recently completed the 8th grade at FGMS . This was one of the most positive experiences for both of us. No environment is absolutely perfect and there are kids from diverse backgrounds. If we prepare our children for these differences in a positive home environment then what they get from their school environment is what they put into to it. Great faculty and staff, wonderful mix of kids- the good and the different. Highly recommended.

Reading these reviews is alarming at best!!! I just removed my child from this school as he does have academic and behavioral concerns that emerged in full bloom in the Broward county school district. I still have one child in the school and luckily he is a more dedicated student by his own accord. There is alot of vulgar messages from students and teachers in this school as well as gang related activity in MIDDLE school. The kids do do whatever they want w/no disicpline and there are loads of illegals and no real rules or follow up on custody matters with this school. I give the school an F!

My daugther is in the advanced classes. She loves the school! I have no complaints. She has learned alot and is basically at a level where even I can't assist (Geometry). I am very pleased with the school. However I think they should offer more pep rallies and less dances at night.

I was hesitant in sending my child to Forest Glen Middle School, but she is now in 7th grade and in the pre-quantum leap program and I am so impressed with the teachers and the level of studies. Unbeleivable what my daughter is learning. My childs education couldn't be any better, I'm so glad I didn't send her to a private school. Forest Glen is awesome!

Not a good school by my standards! The kids are supposed to wear uniform and they don't. No respect for anyone! If your child struggles, forget it! We are moving back home to put our kids back in small town schools with morals and standards! We have experienced much better! Run if you can! Southern Mom with morals going home!

The teachers are all very friendly and really care about the students. All the electives are fun and enjoyable. And the principal is anything but incompetant and does everything he can to help the school. Her 3 years, she says were the best years of her life. Me as a parent, I really think that they have prepared her for high school and beyond. I have had nothing but good experiences at this school and I'm glad I have another 2 years left. By the way, both kids are honor students with a high GPA.

My child is going into 7th grade. It took all of 6th grade to learn the ropes. My child is ok acidemicly no thanks to the school! You can never get someone you need by phone unless you demand to speek to that spesific person or they just put you through to a voice mail. A call back ha what is that? So if you need answers to anything from attndence to the bus to bullying you better be ready to go to the school and sit until they find someone or can find the time to speak with you.So get involed from day one and stay involed! The music and art activities are fine my child liked them. Some of the teachers are just flat out rude to our children. So take in to heart if your child tells you the teachers and staff are nasty or use foul languge with them.

I agree with the other comments posted, this is not the greatest school in the district by far! Many of the teachers DO NOT want to be there and they express this, both verbally and by their attitudes, to the children on a daily basis. If your child is doing well they are great but the minute your child drops in academics it is a totally different story. They seem to help the better student rather than help the students who are in need. To me, that is counterproductive! I have had horrible experiences at my parent/teacher conferences and have not been regularly updated on my child's performance until it is too late. However, I have been contacted for issues that to most parents are the least of their worries (dress and gum). I think the administration needs to start monitoring their teachers and the way they conduct their classes.

My daughter attended this school in 2004. If your in the advanced programs, no problem. If your child is in the general population, good luck. Kids are bused in from other neighborhoods and it's more like a 'day care' center. Just drive by in the morning and have a look. But what kind of choice do you really have in Florida?? Too bad our kids are suffering.
