First day of school did not go well. Very disorganized, teachers were missing informing parents or just did know the answers to questions. I counted 10 students who were lost and had no idea where they needed to go. Complete chaos today!
Our daughter, Madelyn, did incredibly well at Forest North her first two years. We had to move after first grade but she made amazing progress. Ms Autum San Miguel was able to work with Madelyn and get her to really see her full potential!! This should and the staff should be scored a solid 10.
Forest North honors a handful of students each month with their Eagle Pride awards. The student is invited to the principal’s office where they call the parents together so the principal can share the child’s accomplishments. The main focus for the Eagle Pride award is to influence kids to develop into honest, fair young adults with integrity. It’s an awesome program & the school proudly displays their Eagle Pride awardees in the hallways.
Our youngest daughter is finishing up her 3rd year here this semester & our middle daughter was here for 4th & 5th grade (currently at DMS). We have had nothing but incredible experience after incredible experience with the entire faculty at Forest North. The ladies at the front are always friendly & helpful. Mrs. Decker, the assistant principal, is so hands on with the students, she takes the time to share all of her students' accomplishments & celebrate them. She even called us personally when there were concerns that arose after our 1st year there. The classroom teacher called a small faculty conference when she saw signs that our youngest may have dyslexia. Mrs. Decker took the time to call & go over everything discussed & answer all of my questions; she then promptly started the process to have her evaluated. Turned out she has fairly severe dyslexia & the school has gone above and beyond to support her. Every classroom teacher has been exceptional, they care so much for their students. We love this school and all of the people there, thank you for being such great role models for our kiddos!
My son has attended Forest North for the last three years and have had a great experience. All his teachers have been super sweet and very helpful. He likes school and all the after school programs that are offered like Yoga Club, Music club etc. The playground is a little dated but that just makes for tougher kids + a bond was passed recently to get that equipment updated.
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!
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.
