Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The teachers are wonderful at forest lake. They are hard working and caring professionals. I feel so lucky my children got to experience such a great staff.

Considering the lack of financial support Wantagh gives its schools, the educators rise above it and are tops. Admin and teachers give their all to our kids. If you want a country club you have to pay for it.

Typical Nassau county School. All teachers teach to the test. No 'critical thinking skills' taught whatsoever. PTA very clicky, Principle seems to be very unable to lead. Teachers may be overburdened with large class sizes. Forest Lake feels like just another cattle ranch.

Below average school at best. Principal provides no leadership, no clubs for kids, only activities and programs provided are thru PTA. State test scores are the lowest out of the 3 elementary schools in the district.

Lovely school,close knit 'family' atmosphere. Strong parent involvement. Very good programs offered, including 'gifted' students program. Lacking formal auditorium. Wonderful atmosphere for learning and comraderie.
