This school is wonderful! Our student started Preschool here and is now in Kindergarten. The teachers and staff are excellent. I love how it's okay for the teachers and kids are allowed to say they love each other and provide a hug when a young one gets teary eyed. Very compassionate staff that live and provide so much "faith, love, and family". Parent involvement is crucial and I like how every Parent is allowed to express an idea and have it considered instead of ignored in some institutions. Awesome school all around!
This is our 17th year at Forest Hills Lutheran School. Two sons attended K through 8th and went on to a very academically challenging private highschool and did very well there. Our third son has a couple more years at FHLS and is an avid reader like his brothers. We have always loved the spacious campus at FHLS and the loving staff are daily Christian examples to their students. Come for a visit and experience our school.
Over the years, we knew many kids who had gone through Forest Hills. I was impressed with each and every one of them. When my daughter neared the age to enter Kindergarten, I researched the school further and toured the facility. I was impressed with every aspect--the setting for the school is simply bucolic, the class size is ideal and the teachers are top-rate. When comparing Forest Hills to other private schools, Forest Hills comes out head and shoulders above the rest!
We have been FHLS parents for 10 years. Our oldest child attended Kindergarten through 8th grade. He has since moved on to public high school and has excelled academically & socially. We attribute this to the high academic standards, the teachers and the staff who care about the students that they mentor as well as providing a strong Christian foundation to our children. Our daughter currently attends FHLS. She loves going to school. It is a safe, secure & nuturing environment that has shaped our children into responsible & caring young people. Our memories and experiences at FHLS will be treasured forever.
Forest Hills is an amazing school that we have been apart of since 2009. The staff is dedicated, nurturing, and exceptional. They all have a heart for teaching the whole child and want each student to excel and become lifelong learners. Primary teachers work collaboratively together to provide integrated thematic instruction and adapt instruction for all instructional levels. Intermediate teachers have done an amazing job challenging students and teaching them how to set goals and make the necessary steps to achieve them. My children have learned so much from the art program and continue to practice art techniques at home. FHLS provides many after school opportunities that the kids love. If class sizes are a concern for you in public school , then stop by and see this school. My kids are in classes of 14 and 16 which is wonderful. The teachers can give individual attention in order to meet each child's needs. This school provides Christian education which my children love to be a part of. They are learning strong, moral values that will last a lifetime. Please come and visit our school. It will be a decision that will ultimately change your family's lives forever.
My school is Forest Hills Lutheran school. We love it for many reasons. First love the class size. We are in a class of 14 kids! Our public school would have been 32! We love the multiage classroom! What an incredible environment to learn in. Love the faith based teachings and the country location! We couldn't be happier.
We love Forest Hills! The class sizes are wonderful and the staff is very caring. We love the country setting and the after school programs are fun! We are very happy with the decision to send our child to FHLS.
Our daughter has been attending Forrest Hills since 1st grade and loves it. She has gone from a hesitant, unsure reader to someone who is confident when called upon to read in front of her 3rd grade class. Christian values are taught throughout the school day. The curriculum includes daily prayers, PE, music, and weekly chapel. The lunches are H3G : Healthy, Homemade, Hot, and Good! The physical campus is amazing (12 acres) located just south of Cornelius Oregon that has been maintained with loving care throughout the years. You've got to see it to believe it! I would highly recommend a visit/tour, but be prepared, once you see it you'll want to have your child(ren) attend.
Our daughter has been at Forest Hills since she was a first grader. We like the Christian values that are included in the curriculum. Once a week the children meet for chapel. The small class size gives are daughter more opportunities to succeed in her academic endeavors. The school offers library, music and physical exercise during the week. Forest Hills does offer after school programs: such as legos, music, science, spanish. The lunches are healthy and homemade. The campus is a beautiful and spacious location. We would highly recommend that you visit the campus and take a tour.
Forest Hills Lutheran school is a diamond in the rough... from the wonderful country location to the amazing staff, faculty, curriculum and programs it is a fantastic place for your kids to grow spiritually and academically. We have been there 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed feeling like a part of a community with the common goal of doing the right thing for our kids and the Forest Hills Community. We could not have been happier with our choice to attend Forest Hills and look forward to when our 2nd child is old enough to start attending. Check them out, they are definitely worth the trip!
My family has been a part of the FHLS community for almost 5 years. In this community, our children are growing spiritually, excelling academically and enjoying high quality friendships. They feel safe at FHLS and know that their teachers care about them.
Forest Hills Lutheran is an amazing school in a beautiful country setting with wonderful and dedicated staff!
We have two children that attend Forest Hills and we love this school! The teachers and administration are easy to work with, very good with the children, and appreciate parent involvement in the education process. Even though it is a small school, it has lots of extra-curricular activities for the children as well as a cafeteria and gym. Classes are small which provide for an excellent educational experience.
We really are extremely happy with Forest Hills Lutheran School. And what is equally important, our 2 kids are loving it! The administration, teachers, and all of the staff are great. Other parents have been very welcoming during our first year. And the kids are thriving in their classrooms and enjoying extra-curricular activities. Even the drive to the rural picturesque campus has turned out to be enjoyable. We highly recommend!
Forest Hills Lutheran school is simply...amazing! We have been so blessed to have found this school. 3 years ago we enrolled our kids in 1st and 3rd grades. While we are not of the Lutheran religion, we were welcomed with open and loving arms! We love and are loved by this amazing family. The teachers and staff are fabulous, easy to get a hold of and talk to whenever needed. The families that attend our school believe in it's community and place where are kids are safe. The class sizes are fairly small, allowing for VERY individual attention. My kids feel like EVERY child in their class is important and a friend. They are all very close. Time for art, P.E., music, library, band, and other activities puts our school above others! This dedicated time is very special and so important to round out character in our children. The homemade lunch every day is un-matched! Our lunch lady (and Mom of children at FHLS) cares what goes into our kids bodies EVERY single day. This is an amazing school!
Forest Hills is an amazing school where the staff and administration are committed to caring for each child and helping them succeed to their full potential. Families are vital to the success of the program, and parents give freely and generously of their time. As an educator, I can attest to the fact that the curriculum is solid, and the students entering public school from our program are consistently ahead of the game, and those moving onto private, college-prep high schools are well prepared for the work ahead of them. The strong foundation Forest Hills offers sets the students up to successful academic leaders. Forest Hills is also dedicated to the faith life of each child, helping them grow in the knowledge of Christ and his love for them. This is what sets Forest Hills apart from other private schools.
Forest Hills Lutheran is a school that builds a strong sense of community support. My children are treated with respect and love. I love the option of the multiage classroom and the dedication to literacy. I feel my children are getting the best education in the most important years of their development.
Forest Hills Lutheran School is exceptional! We were looking for a school that offered small class sizes and a well rounded education for our son. Art, music, PE and library are offered on a wkly basis along with extra-curricular activities during each season. There is a sense of community among parents and staff-we are all in this together! They say it takes a village to raise children and we have found that at Forest Hills. You won't be disappointed!
This is a small class size, nurturing and FANTASTIC school! I am a non-Lutheran, but I feel very comfortable with my children in this kind environment. Fantastic academics as well!
i love this school and my kids are so happy here. I really like the family atmosphere and how even when I am not around, I feel like my kids are with someone who truly cares for them. The academics are also top notch and I love the reading program.
