I absolutely love Forest Heights Elementary! The teacher involvement is really great and I feel that Mr. Grimmer is the best principal that they could have asked for. I have two children there and this is my youngest first year and I know she will will have a wonderful year.

I love forest heights. both my girls attend there and they love it. my oldest has ADD and the teacher she had this past year was wonderful.she was doing very poorly in the beginning of the year and with the hard work she put forth and the extra time and effort this teacher gave her by the middle of the year she was on the a-b honor holl and she loves school. The staff there is great and Mrs.Carter the new principal there is excellent. She worked so hard to make sure the students test scores were up this year and acknowledged each childs achievments and i think she is great. and Forest Heights is a wonderful learning place.

I am a parent of a Forest Heights student. I am not happy at all with there work. This school is not on the same level as other schools in Gaston County. I do not feel like my child is getting what she deserves and that is not fair to her. I think that Forest Hheights needs to research other schools and see what they are doing learning wise and teach these children what the other schools are teaching.
