All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

If you ever want your child to become something in life, don't send them to Forest Hills. As a student, I must say there is nothing offered here. There are barely any AP classes, you can only choose from about 8 clubs who do absolutely nothing, the staff would rather sit you in front of a movie then actually teach, and if you are involved in anything other than sports, you are non-existing. I've tried over the years to get a better art program into the school and the guidance councilor told me "it would never happen, so quit trying." The few teachers who want to help me get into college told me to transfer schools because I would never get anywhere with the horrid education I was receiving. After receiving 80+ awards for this school and not getting any sort of recognition(not even a good job; just a two word email saying, "That's nice" when my mother told the Principal), I found out that the only thing this school is good for is producing washed up, "Home Town Hero" sports stars from Nowhereville, PA. If you want to succeed, don't go here.

My four year old has entered the PreK program this year. We are having a little difficulty with behavior. We have had one meeting with several staff members. Not one had a single suggestion on how to handle this situation. They provide inappropriate forms for us to fill out. The hand out pamphlets that are inappropriate. Their answere is they know the forms need some work. These are supposed to be TRAINED professionals. Can't say I agree.

Forest Hills, while a great high school experience, lacks the courses, guidance, and other criteria that I need as a student. If you have ambitions at this school, it means nothing unless, unfortunately, they revolve around football. As an honors student, and founder of several successful organizations and clubs, I was excited to speak to my guidance counselor at the high school, but was unsatisfied when i found out that FH doesn't offer any AP classes until 11th grade, whereas other schools offer them as early as 9th grade. If you aspire to receive the top-tier education at the collegiate level, as I do, the guidance counselors, basically, laugh in four faces and hand you an application for UPJ. Teacher quality is poor, half of them are jerks and the other half are to busy scheduling football strategies to teach a class. All in all FH has terrible academics. Period.

This school is focoused far to much on sports and far to less on schooling. The education given to the students is less teaching and more just reading to them of a slide show. You'r child would be better off reading from his/her own textbook.

I graduated from this school in 1995 and feel that the lack of cultural diversity is not preparing the students for life beyond Sidman, PA. I think it's a shame that the students are required to attend school on Martin Luther King day, but have off for the first day of hunting season. Just because there are not African Americans that attend the school, that doesn't mean that the students shouldn't be taught respect. If there is a choice between sending my child to this school or home schooling my child, he will be taught at home.

My son graduated from this school in 2000. When Mr. Bernazolli came, it was terrific. All kids received more equal treatment. That's why I rate the principal's leadership at the highest level. Do whatever you have to do to keep him at Forest Hills . He's the best!
