I have been to this school for a short period of time compared to everyone else here. I have been to one other school in claiborne county that did not quite fit my, 'Excited and happy' outlook on the world. Forge ridge is about two hundred thousand times better than my old school. All the teachers are so nice. The principle is nice, they treat you like you arent a bad kid (unlike at other schools that will remain unnamed) The teachers here actualy care. I get to see sunlight (Unlike my other school) and the teachers seem to adapt to the student, not vice versa. Which I believe makes the whole experience alot more comfortable for the student. Forge ridge, I thank you.

My children have went to FRS since 1st grade. Mr. Cosby is a great principal and the teachers are all really wonderful. They work hard and push the student to do their very best.

I have been at Forge Ridge since the first grade. I have always felt very welcome there. I believe that it is a great school and I love that it is not overcrowded. This gives the teachers and staff more of an opportunity to focus one on one with the students. I would also like to say to the parents who read this that the influence of certain families has nothing to do with the treatment of the students. I believe that not only is it rude and uncalled for, but also an insult to the integrity of the hardworking staff and students to generalize any problems that might occur in such a small way. I love our principal Marty Cosby, and would like to mention Mr.David Redmond. He is the most excellent teacher I've ever had. I love the school, principal, teachers, staff, and my fellow students.

I have two sons and a daughter that goes to forge ridge school, and we love it. They are treated great, even though they are not a Daniels or a Cosby. I know everything that is going on with my children. All the teachers are great, and I love the principal. I would never send my kid to any other school.

I have two daughters enrolled at this school and they both love it! They have been in other schools in the district and I can honestly say that Forge Ridge is a better school. Why? Because it is smaller and the kids get more one on one attention. All of the staff are friendly and have the kids best interest as their top priority. They treat kids like human beings. The kids learn and have fun at the same time.

I have had children in this school for the past 25 years. I have been to all the conferences and I have also supported the school in every way possible. Since Marty Cosby has been principal of this school I have had nothing but bad experiences. The teachers have nothing good to say about my daughter and haven't since 2nd grade. She is never in trouble but it seems she is an outcast because she is not related to the Cosby's or the Daniel's which run the school.I would take her out of this school but she is zoned to go there. This, from my research, is the worst school in the county. Also, they love to assign homework and never ask for it to check it. Such a waste of valuable teaching time and children's free time at home.

I couldn't ask for a better school experience for Beth. The school feels like a family. I was very happy with her teachers and the leadership I have witnessed in this school. The award's ceremony is so special. The presentations of honor roll and attendance is so encouraging to my daughter.The office staff that I talk to when I call is so helpful and compassionate. I couldn't ask for a better school.

My children, and foster children, were students at Forge Ridge for several years. The entire staff, esp. Mr. Cosby was wonderful and the kids loved their school family, and that is how they are treated there, like family. The staff did everything they could during a difficult time in our lives, and then support we received made it possible to move forward in our lives. They made learning fun and the kids enjoyed going to school everyday. Thank You to the faculty at Forge Ridge!
