I think this school is excellent. I've been there for four great years. My teachers were Mrs. Warzinyak, Mrs. Casey, Ms. LeSaint, and Mrs. Loving. The teachers there have a great source of knowledge and are great, loving teachers.

This school was ok but i was only here for 3 years to finish 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. But overall it was one of the best schools i went to. The teachers always wanted to teach their students and wanted parents to get involved with their children's education. I had 2 favorite teacherswhen i attended this school, they were, Mrs. Wible and Ms. Jordan.

I think this is a great school. There is constant parent teacher interaction and always an activity or event going on to involve the kids. With all the fund-raising, trips, family nights (movie night skating, pizza hut, bowling) just to name a few. I am very impressed with all of the involvement. We have only been apart of the Forrest family for 1 year now. (kindergarten). I can not wait to see what's in store for us in the first grade. I am also looking forward for my new pre-schooler to attend kindergarten next year, with the same excitement and motivation my son has now. He has encouraged her so much she can't hardly wait to start. The only 'problem' I have seem to have had was with all the construction at dismissal time it's crazy,but its for good cause, all the kids will benefit from it.

I have been a parent of Edwin Forrest for 6 years. My 4th child has just started kindergarten. The academic program they have to offer is wonderful! There are so many ways for your child to learn. They even offer programs for those who may need some help. My children have been involved in the band, track team and gymnastics, all of which they enjoy doing. The only way for you to keep your child successful in school, is to be involved, know what is going on and be willing to participate.
