I don't think we could be happier at any other school! Forest Hills is a great school and the staff are fantastic. My child is in the language immersion program and after just 1.5 years speaks Spanish fluently! The teachers have helped me know how to better help my child and they seem to care about my child's learning abilities as well as her emotional and physical states. As a family, we love this school. Our only concern is that there is talk about the school going to a year-round rather than traditional school calendar.
The 3 rating is not accurate in my opinion. Our daughter has attended FHE since 2010 and there have MANY IMPROVEMENTS in the last 12 months under the new principal. The teachers there care a great deal about the students and do a FANTASTIC job at challenging the advanced ones.
My daughter is in 5th grade @ Forest Hills and loves the school,teachers and staff. They have been wonderful and with all the newly renovations it makes the school more equipt to teach our children how to help them further their experinece s in school.. Love it
As a teacher who as worked under three principals here, I can honestly say we have got the best now. Our school is safe, activites are based on data that is meanbingful to teachers and students. and our parents are supportive and enthusiastic. Forest Hills has become a great place to be!
My daughter started school this year and she loves it more than anything. She enjoys playing and learning with other children. All the children are very well behaved. Ms. Lowell and Mrs. Jones are great! My daughter loves school so much, she asks her father and I all weekend when its time to go to school. 'Is it time yet?' The only concern we have, is that the children do not have mats to lie down on at 'quiet time'. We were instructed to provide a beach towel. My daughter complains that her back hurts from lieing down on the hard floor.
My 6 yr old loves this school. We do also. The teachers are caring about their students. One of the few schools left that do offer P.E. There are a lot of extra events throughout the year that give the parents and child a chance to enjoy the school together.
my daughter attended forest hills elementary last year, and she had Mrs. Beddard and Mrs. Swartz. The teachers were so involved in my daughters education and well being. whenever my daughter was sick,Mrs. Swartz always called to check on her. I think forest hills elementary is a wonderful school. I decided to stay in the area because my daughter loves her school and I love the parent-teacher involvement. I hope that my child has wonderful teachers this year like last year!
