Love, Loveeee this school, my daugther is in kinder garden and she is already reading at first grade level, teacher Mrs Whithing is Great!!! the school always have something going on as far activities, everyone is so nice and friendly..thanks Forest Pine
I have two children at Forest Pines and have been very satisfied with the school and the teachers. The 'specials' rotation is great - extra sessions with art, music, Spanish, technology, library, etc. The teachers have been very responsive and approachable. My kids have really enjoyed it,and I also feel like they're getting solid instruction. I do wish they had better support with teachers' aides, but in this economy I can understand how that's not top priority. I think that the administration also does a good job keeping parents informed about upcoming deadlines and activities.
Tremendous school...teachers and administration!!! We moved our child from a nearby private school to Forest Pines because our child and we were so unhappy with the private school. Since being in Forest Pines, he has completely turned around and is now thriving. We owe this to the positive, competent, and caring environment in this school. We strongly recommend Forest Pines!
We have been very pleased with Forest Pines Drive Elementary. Our son had a great start in kindergarten and has continued to flourish since entering 1st grade. He has also built great friendships thus far!
We were at this school for only 1 year (2207-2008). We had a difficult year there. I have a child with ADHD and had problems with the particular teacher we received. The staff seemed courteous, but trying to receive special services was difficult. Again, teacher was difficult to communicate with and staff seemed out of touch with ADHD issues.
We moved here the second year the school was at the Dubois Center. We've since moved into our new building in the Wakefield area. The teachers are professional, the kids WANT to learn, and the staff is so helpful. There are a variety of teachers with different teaching skill sets. My children have thrived and due to our popularity, new school, and outstanding education, we are overcrowded.
All three of my children (2nd, 3rd and 5th graders) have been very happy at this school this year. Although very new (this is only the second year), the school has a very vibrant atmosphere, thanks to a dynamic principal, and a very enthusiastic staff. There is also quite a high level of parental involvement, and a very active PTA. Thanks to careful planning and some ingenuity, the fact the school has been functioning out of trailers for the last two years has never been allowed to affect the students, and over the summer we will be moving into a spanking new building. I can highly recommend the school to anyone who is assigned to it, and am looking forward to my children's remaining years here.
