My child has attended for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. Her teachers have been absolutely wonderful. The school has a great variety of clubs and programs for the students. A few of the fun school events have been stopped since the new principal took over at the end of last year, but that hasn't seemed to change the great spirit of most teachers and staff. You will be one of the lucky ones if your child is assigned to this school.
My daughter went to Forester for a little over a year. We were extremely pleased with everything there. Her teacher was fantastic and we really miss her this year. Any child in Mrs. Gutierrez's class is made to feel special. Mr. Davenport is a phenominal principal. After moving to another school in the district I can definately say not all schools are equal.
My two children transferred from Lackland Elementary School, and I was concerned about the change of schools. The adjustment for my children did not create any problems. The teachers are very caring and I can tell that they care about their student's education. I am very pleased with Forester! My son has gotten straight As two years in a row, and my daughter is in the honor roll. Great school!
My daughter transferred from Lewis to Forester for her last year of elementary school and we were very impressed. We were always happy with Lewis but I guess what we didn't know didn't hurt us. Forester keeps the parents involved and the teachers and administrators are very available to parents and students alike. They offer many clubs and "extras" that make school fun. The leadership of the principal, Mr. Davenport, makes it all happen. I was torn when the boundaries changed whether to move my daughter or keep her at Lewis. It was a great change and I am proud of the school!
