My 3 kids all went to Forest View. I think the teachers are great, with a lot of experience. The TDP (gifted) program is excellent. Administration is responsive. The strong PTO is able to provide very nice gifts to the school for the fine arts program, library, physical educations and accellerated reader program. Parents are not constantly bombarded with fundraisers as there is typically only one per school year. This school really embraces its diversity. I would definitely reccommend Forest View.
Because it is a good community school and I was always happy with my childrens' teachers.
Forest View is an excellent school.My son is enrolled in the First Grade.He has made tremendous development in all the subjects.His class teacher Mrs.Renu Gandhi is very experienced and the credit goes to her and Mrs Dave.My son is in very good hands and all the school staff including Mrs Wiekert are awesome.I am very thankful to all the staff of Forest View.
I think Forest View School is fantastic school. I have had 3 children go through this school and I have been impressed by every teacher. The level of caring is wonderful. The education they are receiving is superb. Mrs Wiekert does a great job and is responsive to the needs of the kids and the parents. I have been actively involved in PTO for the last 10 years and find that the parents do volunteer both their time and their money to enhance the learning opportunities at this school. I cannot imagine my children going to any other school, Forest View is truly like our second home.
My pre-school aged son is thriving there in their early childhood learning program. He had a few speech issues that he's quickly overcoming, and he himself is becoming much more confident as well. Needless to say I'm very pleased with the program!
Forest View is a terrific school that has Preschool up to Grade 5. My child is in the LOP Program(Learning Opportunities Program)which is a great program for children with learning disabilities. The class is small(10 students) and there is a lot of one on one instruction. There is also a teacher's aide to help out. The school day is very structured, with many opportunities for the LOP students to have some of their classes with the mainstream classrooms. The teachers are terrific. My child has come a long way in the two years she has attended this school. Students are also taught that character counts. They are learning how to be good citizens. Parents are encouraged to be a part of their children's education, and the Parents and Teachers work very well together for the betterment of the student.
I've been very impressed with the caliber of teaching skills at Forest View and of the young and relatively new principal, Meg Weickert. My child adores school and is also learning in an environment that offers more ethnic diversity, something that I did not have. I believe FV makes the adjustment to middle school fairly smooth. If a parent has any concerns or problems the principal, teachers and staff are easy to get in touch with. A great atmosphere!
Forest View has the potential to be a spectacular school. Unfortunately, the District is holding it back. I hope once the current Superintendent retires and his successor is installed, things will look bright once again. I went to FV as a child and my children attend it now. I received an excellent education with many more extracurricular activities and not nearly the stress on standardized tests that seem prevalent today. They would do well to dispense with the 'teaching to the test' mode and get back to the business of teaching our children in the best manner possible for each child.
