My kids love this school,the teachers they have had are great.Right now one has Mrs Raynor,what a sweetheart.She has a big heart and my kids have loved her.They have learned more from her than any other teacher they have had.I give her and other teachers a lot of credit for what they have to put up with and doing it for little pay

Forest Lake Elementary is an awesome school. My two sons attended and one is still in 5th grade attending. They have a great gifted program, alot of family functions for parents to get involved and Mr. Robinson the assistant principal is hands down the best school faculty member I have encountered in any school. He is just an awesome person, keeps kids motivated, always happy, always positive, funny, silly and can put a smile on your face everytime you see him. All schools should have a Mr. Robinson !!

My daughter, who is now in 5th, had started going to this school in second grade. From day one, we knew that we would be happy here. The assistant principal, Mr. Robinson, is terrific. Very upbeat and energetic and makes every child and parent feel important. The school is clean and organized. They offer many different programs to get your child more involved from cooking club, to dance club, to school news and student council to the more family related events like the ice cream socials and such. Now, our 5 year old is attending and at first I was a little nervous (as most Kindergarten mom's are) but the school and the teachers have gone to the ends of the earth to ensure that the transition is easy and that my daughter can leave class early enough to walk her brother to the after-school-care bus. I will tell you that the school is VERY picky about who is on the campus but I really like that safety is a top priority and don't mind the extra hassle.

I like this school.the only problem I had is my granddaughter who I have custody of did not take her serious with her emotional problems at one point the teacher would not let her go see the school counselor to talk without first telling the teacher what she had to talk about ,I know for a fact that the teacher was wrong and the counselor should of called me in for a talk and to refer her to a counselor outside of school. I hope this changes I will go talk to the teacher and the counselor this year so she gets the help she needs.

This school is an awesome school!! My child was in the Special Needs Pre-K class for the past two years here and she just got her variance approved to go back to this school. Mrs. Laggner has worked wonders with her and I am very greatful that she is at that school. Her assistance Mrs G and Mrs Monsanto are equally awesome! I just hope she gets Mrs Harris for Kindergarten!!!! *fingers crossed*

The principal is one of the best principals I have seen in a long time. He is very 'hands on'. He hires wonderful teachers who are dedicated. They always keep me up to date on my child's progress. I love this school.

I have had my daughter go thru k-5 in this school and my son started kindergarten last year, and my family has had nothing but great experiences with all the teachers and the staff. It is a really great school.

Both my sister and have gone to Forest Lake, and thought it was a great school. I find that it doesn't like some schools offer special activities for the students who are'nt in gifted. Everyone is treated really fairly. I agree with the other parent about lots of new teachers, but I don't think it creates problems. Also even if it doesn't have many extra-curricular activities the kids are still satisfied, and that is all that matters, seeing as they are the ones who do it.

The principal is great and very 'hands-on'. He hires wonderful teachers. The school is run in a very organized manner. Parents are encouraged to participate. They may not have many extra-curricular activities. However, this 'is' an elementary school. I would not expect much until you get to a middle school. Overall, I think the school is great!

Both of my boys have gone to Forest Lake the past few years. I find that it's a great school with a great staff. The principal is the best! The faculty is caring and professional. My only complaint is that I think kids need recess every single day. The gross motor activity helps them to be more ready to work when they get back in the classroom. My kids are getting a great education at FLE. It's a great school.

I like the principal, but, think that their are too many new teachers. I also agree with the other parent about their not being enough extra activities for the children. I think it is important for the childrens social skills, to be able to communicate with the other children during free time.

We love it! My daughter is in the first grade and she has the best teacher in the world. Besides that, they are so active in Art, Music and Media. My daughters classroom has 5 or 6 computers. Even the food is great! There seems to be so much warmth and care. My 7 year old looks forward to school...enough said!

I found that the leadership at Forest Lake was excellent with a caring principal at the helm. One teacher in gifted classes was excellent while others just didnt always make the grade. There were too many students in each class and the teachers truly need additional help.

I liked Forest Lake in the beginning of the year but it has declined over the school year. My child is in Kindergarden and they have the same rules for them as the 5th graders. I just think the rules for K-gardeners should be a bit less harsh. I mean they are going to school for the first time ALL day. They need a little leway.

This is my second year my children have been enrolled at Forest Lake, and I am satisfied thus far. The teachers are very creative, and take into account the areas that my child is excelling in, and adjusts their work accordingly.

I find that the school does not offer enough extracurricular activities. The children are not offered recess daily and at times are not allowed to talk at lunch. Children need to have some means of releasing that stored energy and having some daily activities to look forward to.
