I am a student, currently a senior at Forest Hills High School. In a nutshell, the school is great. The majority of the teachers know what they are doing and love to teach. The remainder are old, annoyed by the students and faculty and unappreciative. The counselors at the school could care less about college readiness. All they want is for you to receive your credits, graduate and leave. I really wish the school payed more attention to that. In addition, the school lunch is gross. The lunch ladies are unhappy and are very snobby. Moreover, the school is designed for 2,000 students only and we have like 3,000+ ... On the contrary, they have really great programs that you can apply to and if you are lucky you get in.
I'm a freshman at FHHS and so far its great! I'm in the Carl Sagan program and it reallyy challenges me to learn more, study more and try my best. There's a lot of students in the school, but the different school sessions make things a bit easier. The teachers that I have seem to enjoy teaching and most are passionate about passing down their knowledge of the subject to their students, which is greatly appreciated. Although, the process of buying lockers and gym uniforms has become a big hassle since the school store has apparently closed. It has already been more that a week and I'm still struggling to buy my things even though I try to go get them everyday!
Worst school ever! You don't get to play in the gym during lunch, way too many rules. They actually teach for about 20-30 mins because the teachers have to take attendance and check homework. They don't care who leaves the school or anything. I wouldn't even come here but my parents are forcing me.
I Just Graduated from Forest Hills High and it was the best 4 years of my life, because you meet the greatest teachers and you'll have friends who will stick with you through out high school. But my family is the music department! Those guys up there know how to have fun and teach at the same time! and if you're into music/singing/playing an instrument, the music department is the best place to be!
Forest Hills is a great high school if you want to be there, i dont want to be there so i hate it however the environment and all of the teachers and staff there are always ready to help you, its an awesome school-- especially mrs. johnson but you have to know if you want to be there or not!
