First impressions are everything and mine was to run. This school has a long way to go to measure up to the other nearby elementary school East End. Some grades are fine others complete skills are missed because of focus on testing well, which unfortunately didn't pay of for FAE this year. The school as a whole received a C rating placing them almost dead last in the whole district.
I am new to the area, and was quite concerned about enrolling my children into a new school. Their previous school was so awesome, that I thought no other school could compare, boy am I happy I was wrong. This school is awesome, the quality of learning is incredible, and the teachers seem to be more involved with the children. I would recommend this school to anyone.
My daughter has flourished at Forest Acres. I am impressed by the strong emphasis on character teaching and respect from an early age. The new principal seems involved and the students know they are cared for. No complaints here!
