I enjoyed the experience very much and actually cried leaving the school when I graduated. I plan to come back as often as possible, and continue my relationships with the teachers, principal, and community. The teachers are wonderful and the hands-on activities are fun and enriching.

My kids have been attending this school since the year it opened. Over these past years, I've heard critical words from parents who sent their kids to school there, only to pull them out because they didn't think the activities were enriching or important. I have always thought these parents are missing the point. First, the administration is AMAZING (truly) and I have a really hard time believing that any other school could match the smarts, attentiveness, responsiveness, and dedication of this FGCS administration. If your child is having trouble, the teachers work one on one with you until it is resolved. This school is a supportive family -- a true community -- one that embraces kids of all abilities and teaches them the value of helping to improve their environment. If you are worried about that delicate transition to high school: don't. The 7th/8th grade team they have in place is perfect. Your child will be more than prepared for the academic challenges of high school. I feel so thankful for the FGCS and I know my kids do as well. We are lucky to have them in Forest Grove.

Its over rated and was not the best. The idea is sound but the putting it together poses the problem. The feild trips are a waste of time and nothing is learned. No questions or work sheets to fill out on the trip and no follow up in the classroom. Classrooms are small and the cluttered. My child will not be going back this fall.

A wonderful school that brings children into active members into our community. Very hands on and our daughter has loved it here.

As a 'place based' charter school, Forest Grove Community School has its students out of the classroom as much as possible, connecting to the community and environment. Students have many hands on, direct experiences to connect their learning to what is real and significant.
