I have no idea why a parent would feel that the teachers at FNE don't care about their students. I have never met such a dedicated, hard-working bunch of individuals. Ms. Jacobs, the principle, is wonderful as are the overwhelming majority of the staff. My daughter moved here from out of state and had never experienced one incident of bullying. The only thing I would like to see is more parent involvement and support. We love Forest North!

The teachers don't care about the students. The issue with "bullying" is not taken serious, they allow other students to bully the kids. If you are Hispanic or Mexican or Indian, the staff will diminish you, unless you are white and from Texas. So sad that the people in this school think.

This is a school with excellent leadership, staff, and teachers. This is our first year at Forest North. I understand the school has some negative reviews from the past to overcome, and test scores are not where they should be. That said, I have been nothing but pleased with the dedication of the teachers here. The principal and office staff are extremely open and friendly. There are plenty of extracurriculars for my kids to choose from. This school makes sure that bullying and judgement are not an issue amongst the students. Forest North Elementary is like the Little Engine that Could...determined to grow, excel, and overcome.

FNE is a awesome school. My daughter had her best time in FNE. The teachers are so helpful and dedicated to the students. They have many extra curricular activities along with regular school curriculum. Enough homework is given. We loved sending our daughter to Forest North Elementary.No bullying and it is safe environment for kids.

My daughter started attending Forest North in January, after our family moved here from Pennsylvania. I am very impressed with the dedication and effort of the teachers and staff to provide a fun, caring environment for their students. I am very pleased with Forest North.

This school has truly become a delight! The building is old fashion, but that's fine in my book! The teachers and staff are always a great pleasure!! This school really does make you feel like your children are being properly cared for. The cliental at school is also something grand. Can't blame teachers when the cliental doesn't care! Really do love this school! Hope they add more extra activities for the kids to stay involved in!! Keep up the good work forest north!!

I agree with the 2 only honest parents on here who talk about the bullying! It looks like to me that they probably have some staff members writing their own reviews to make this school look better than what it really is, as does alot of other businesses in Austin. I am going to just say that my daughter has never had a problem with another student until we moved here to this area. She has done fine this whole school year until now. A student threatened my daughter, and I took the situation to the principal. Apparently, nothing got resolved and the problem got worse. We come from a school system that took "bullying" very seriously, and enforced punishment which is something that Forest North needs to learn! The kid that wasn't even involved (but who told me what was going on) got poor and unprofessional treatment from her own teacher who put her down (belittled her) several times in 1 day, and made this little girl feel bad. I DO NOT recommend this school to ANY parent. Apparently, they don't take it serious when one kid challenges another to a fist fight! This is a situation that the cops will handle, and possibly an attorney! It's that serious! My kids teacher is amazing overall!

We ended up moving my daughter to this school after the neighborhood school scored so poorly on the TAKS test two years in a row! I had some reservation about moving her to a school I knew nothing about but I have since come 360. I LOVE Forest North. The teachers, staff and parents are so dedicated to the students. A few weeks back I started looking at one of the Charter schools for pure curiosity sake and after meeting with their teachers and leadership I am so glad my daughter is at Forest North. Next year we'll have another Kindergartener starting and I feel 125% confident that she will love it as much as her sister does.

We moved to Austin from Houston and I was so nervous about enrolling my daughter at Forest North due to some of the reviews. My husband and I decided to go ahead and put my daughter in this school despite the reviews and see for ourselves. This was the best decision we ever made!! My daughter made sommany friends and thanks to her teachers especially her 4th grade teacher Ms. Guerra, my daughter has flourished so much. Her grades have gone up and she has gotten so much better with her shyness. The school has offered her so much help with her classes and staying focused on her schooling, that she got her very first honor roll in the 5th grade. I will definately be putting my son at this school for PRe-K. Great Job Forest North and Thank you again!

I am going to add to the recent comment made about Forest North. To the rating of one star. I am a member of the PTA and deal with the school, (because of my son) on a daily basis. The school has many things for student and parent involvement. They have running club in the mornings, library family night once a month, and the Assistant Principal has put in grants for that and for parent math boxes to check out. Many other things. I have delt with the assistant principal directly she has been great to the students and staff. the principal has always givin me a smile, my son has to get his behavior paper signed every day by her, and he has said nothing but good things about her. All public schools have standard teaching materials, however the teachers at this school have been very creative.

This is the worst school situation I could have anticipated for my daughter. The kinder classes are more focused on ideas and concepts than academics. Personally, I send my daughter to school for a traditional academic education, to include reading-counting-writing-math and social skills. Not to fluff the staff's ego. The teachers are substandard, the principle is a dictator who rules her staff and the students with fear. The staff doesn't even respect her. If I knew then, what I know now, I would have moved intentionally to another district and specifically a different school. If you want your child to be forced into a cookie-cutter mold, with no room for individuality, acceleration and no focus on true academics beyond a TAKS test, then this school will be a perfect match.

I liked the attention from the administration office, really promptly and focus. I also like the security system that they have. Also the extra activities are really interesting and encourage the selve confidence of the kids. Although I think they can improve the organization of schedules because is a little complicated to follow. The PTA really good with their ideas and participation. Also the cafeteria services really well organized and administrated.

My child has now graduated from Forest North. The principal is motivated and has a hands-on approach. The school needs to be more discerning about the quality of teachers. It would also benefit the school overall if it recognized students based on their performance and merit rather than being swayed by the influence of parents. Some parents are in the forefront of school activities and that is indeed commendable. But should that parental involvement translate as an eagle pride certificate for their child or several photographs of the same students in the yearbook? This is where I think the administration could step in and ensure a level of fairness while at the same time acknowledging parents' involvement in other ways. I am ofcourse not suggesting this bias creeps in every time. Overall this schools has improved over the years and Mrs. Josselet (Grade 1), PE, Art, and Music teachers are excellent.

I am pulling my daughter out of this school as soon as the year is over. The school staff are unorganized and do not listen to parent concerns. There is a lack of consistency also. It's a shame that the few wonderful teachers at this school have to follow such poor leadership.

I too have been at Forest North for 3 years and am very happy with the school overall. The teachers and leadership are excellent. I have not seen the turnover rate the previous parent talked about, rather the school is growing so fast they keep adding more teachers and classes. My child's teacher has been there for 16 years. The art, PE and music program are very good although, I would like to see more academic programs. We just had a terrific performance of 'Frog and Toad: All Year Round' in which the students had singing, speaking and choreographed parts. My biggest concern at this time, is lack of space for existing students - how may portables can you have before the district says enough. However, I think this is a district wide concern.

While the school is old (25+ years) I see that the staff maintains the facility as stewards! They make do with the increasing population with prudent use of portables, placing the computer lab in the library, coverting art room to music, etc. The principal has impressed me with concern for the children's safety during the road construction.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
