There is no challenge for these students. The teachers just read from a teacher guide and call it a day.

I wish the personnel at this school would put as much effort into caring about their students as they do chatting with each other and making their own lives easier.

With the exception of a few standout teachers, the majority who have been in the district for years are complacent, fear change, and do very little to challenge themselves or their students. They take the path of least resistance to make their own lives easier. Very disappointed in this school.

I did some volunteer work there and the teachers and students are tops. It is a very friendly and happy place.

Wonderful teachers. Best administrative staff. Friendly & positive support staff, learning specialists, and assistants. Teacher parent involvement is top notch. Community involvement is highly rated. Children thrive and learn with such enthusiasm that they are able to take some of that with them as they move on to higher grades.

Phenomenal school with a mindset for academic success for all students. A very involved community and parent involvement make this the true gem of the school district. All the schools in LO are fantastic, and this is the darling of the entire district.

Due to phenomenal fundraising, Forest Hills class size average is very low. My daughter has a second-grade class with 21 students. Parent involvement is also very high, with a proactive PTO. So far I am very happy with my child's elementary school experience.

Excellent school! I have 4 children and over the years I have had my share of experiences with schools. Forest Hills Elementary is one of the best, if not the best Lake Oswego has to offer overall.

Warm, caring environment. Class sizes creeping up to undesirable levels. High level of parental involvement. Too little science and social studies in the primary program.

My children really enjoy Forest Hills. The school has a strong reading and math program. The music teacher is just the best! The level of parent support is amazing.
