This school has many issues. The front office staff are rude, everyone that answers the phones are rude. I've yet to catch them at a 'good time". The teachers are demeaning to the kids. They ridicule them in front of the entire class or whoever is around. Nothing is ever done by the principal. The cafeteria is a huge social gathering, there's no staff controlling the kids or helping the younger ones. The gifted program is the biggest joke. Never question the curriculum or you will have your child ridiculed in class. The best part of the school is the aftercare program. It is good, Mrs. G has done a good job taking over Ms. Winkis position.
My son has been at this school since 2007 kindergarden . he loves it here , its not a perfect school but were all happy with this school . And so far my son has had great teachers . thankyou to all teachers and staff of foresthill elementry .
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.
