Forest Dale is the greatest school when it comes to education requirements as well as caring for our planet and others. They teach responsibility and the requirements needed to make our world go round.

Forest Dale is a great school! As Carmel begins to provide diversity our schools will only become stronger. The primary teachers at FD have been exceptional! Mrs. Ganzel, the only board certified teacher at FD knows her instruction! Thanks to the PTO for their outstanding efforts, enrichment and support to new parents. Our principal, Mrs. O, knows what she is doing and will continue to push FD teachers to do their best for the children!

Ive had 3 children in forest dale and I am very pleased with the school and teachers. My youngest child is having extra help with his english and they have a great program with that. My familiy have thought about moving homes but have decided to wait untill my son is out of elementary school because we dont want him to leave forest dale untill he is done with elementary school.

We're now on our 3rd child through Forest Dale Elementary and we are extremely happy with all aspects of the school. Our 3rd child has some learning problems and was falling behind. We met with her teachers, special ed personnel, and the principal of the school and they bent over backwards to help us with compassion. And our child is doing much better in school because of it. We find Forest Dale to be an extremely nuturing, loving environment for children. The new building is very nice too. My kids have enjoyed being in plays that are offered several times a year.

This school seems to hand out 2 - 3 hours of homework daily and there are very few teachers in the school that like to actually TEACH the children how to do them. I found 5th grade to be the biggest problem.
