This is our second year at Forest Elementary and we are so glad we chose F.E.S! A job transfer brought us to VA and we had several choices of where to live. Since we wanted to find a strong public school in a small community, we relied upon the GreatSchools.org website to help us make this decision. We absolutely made the right choice. The teachers and staff could not be more professional and supportive. They truly care about these kids! Our son is very happy at F.E.S, he has made friends and his grades are excellent! We are so pleased! Five stars!!!

I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with. It's a pleasure to come to work each day. The teachers are dedicated to their profession. The students here at Forest Elementary School are hard-working, polite individuals. The parent support is wonderful.

Very loving Principal, Teachers and Staff! Love the ability to volunteer for the school and the classroom! Being able to have lunch with my child anytime is a special bonus. I feel I have the choice to be as involved as I can and want to be easily and happily! Although I didn't love the idea of the mobiles at first, the teachers have made the environment warm and welcoming - they are not an issue at all! I am proud that all my children have been at this school and transitioned to Middle School easily!

The quality of academic programs are excellent. The extracurricular activities are adequate for the area. Parent involvement has to be scheduled you cannot just show up. I did not like the classes in the mobile at all.

Wonderful environment for learning and socializing. Great parent involvement. Lost a fantastically dedicated and gifted principle to the Middle school in 2002 and a stellar second grade teacher to retirement in 2001. New principal is also proving to be VERY capable. Thank you Forest Elementary for all you have done for our daughter. We could not have asked for better teachers in the four year period she attended.
