Teachers at this school are always working hard and caring about the children. Many things are planned to enhance their education.

I love the school my daughter was failing before she entered, her teacher made it a great experience for our daughter and us, on helping us bring up her grades. She went from a 'f' average all the way up to an 'a'. Thanks alot to Forrest Hill elem. And the hard working teachers. 'Happy parent

New principal this year with both positive & negative changes. This is my son's 2nd year at FHES and he is in the Accelerated program. I have been very pleased with his teachers, especially Ms. Franqui. Communication with her has been exceptional! There has been improvement in the drop off/pick up routine from last year, but more still needs to be done. The SACC program (after school) is excellent! Ms. Winkis is great! Not only do the students have time to do homework, but best of all have a variety of FUN activities, including karate, dance club, ASL, as well as special guests; also teach character building (CHAMPS). The only negative is the front office staff. They seem disorganized, are unfriendly and need to improve their 'helpfulness.' I have never once been greeted with a smile, even as a volunteer and it appears they don't know what's going on.

The teachers are the best here. Most of them care a lot about the kids education, that's one of the reasons my son still goes there. Do not care for the principals personality.

I feel this school needs to work on student drop off/ pick up. There needs to be a better paln to pick the children up by grade or section.

This school needs to address its safety issues when picking up students from school! Students can just walk off the school with no staff supervision. The principal does not return phone calls nor address parental concerns. I find it hard to get ahold of staff and teachers and they do not act very professional. Parent pickup/dropoff is a complete mess with no police or staff directing traffic. Every now and then you will see a staff member directing the traffic, but not very often. The crossing guards are wonderful. Very nice and watch out for the kids. I guess someone has to since the school does not.

I'm in complete agreement with the other posting about the principal. I had to follow up with her numerous times to take care of something and even then she had no clue what or who I was after I left uncountable messages for her to call back. Eventually I had to call her boss to get her to return my call. And after that she passed the buck to the teacher and never did what she said she would do. I'm very dissappointed.

The administration does not understand professionalism. They do not have any people skills. They do not know how to handle discipline.

Most teachers are actually pleasant. A few are horrible. The school leadership is good.

My son also had Mrs. Kennedy for kingergarten for the 2003-2004 school year. I also feel that she is the best teacher FHES has. My child started off at another school and performed poorly. Mrs. Kennedy brought him into a whole new light. I wish all teachers were so dedicated. She really makes a difference in the world.
