Forest Grove is a spectacular school. The staff are lovely, the students are behaved, and the education is simply wonderful. I was a former student, but now in 6th grade. Here we are taught not to bully and respect the PBIS rules. But to tell the truth,there are few misbehaved students, mainly male. There are only a few disrespectful children. I think the school should improve on lunch. The year in fifth grade, our lines were so LOOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! I hope they have changed that... Hope you decide wisely, - peACe#hteLOL

My three children attended Forest Grove for 1-5, and two attended K. The teachers were marvelous and committed to student success. My oldest daughter has volunteered there throughout high school and talks about how great the teachers are and how well-behaved the students are.

My two sons attended Forest Grove from kindergarten I through 5th grade. They have really enjoyed it and they have received a great education. This school recently won a national blue ribbon award and the teacher and education my kids received are excellent. My 5th grader recently told me unprompted that "no one bullies in my school". That was great to hear. You will be happy if you send your kids to this school.

Great school. My two daughters have attended this school and i can't say enough good things about the school. Teachers are involved and do a great job making sure kids are being developed properly.

This school is rated a 5 out of 10. It is not a very good school and the low rating is an accurate measurement of that fact. My 4th grade son has been the victim of repeated bullying and nothing measurable or effective has been done to correct the situation, in my opinion. My son is punished if he defends himself and the school does not care if you are hit, kicked, choked, or otherwise assaulted or restrained; students are not allowed to defend themselves! We believe, as a family, that fighting should always be an absolute last resort, but if you are being attacked, and cannot escape, you should be permitted to use necessary force to facilitate an escape to safety.

Our son attended this school for 2 years. He had a well rounded growth in this school with creative skills, science, social, arts etc. When he needed to be challenged more, the teachers readily gave him interesting work. The principal is a strong leader who promoted character, discipline, respect along with academics. School facilities are top notch. PTA could use more and active parental involvement. Overall, very satisfied.

My son is in this school for 3 years now. Its an awesome school. Teachers are great. They take care and provide challenging assignments for the kids to keep them motivated. The principal is a wonderful lady who treats everyone with respect and is a wonderful role model for the children. School needs more parent involvement. Overall tHis iis definitely a great school.

Forest Grove is one of the best elementary schools I've seen. The teachers are great, the principal is smart and resourceful and the support staff does exactly that-support everyone. If anyone's child isn't learning at this school, I would imagine it has more to do with that child's parents' participation and involvement in the school. Everyone who worked there was fabulous when my kids went to this school (2004-2011).

I thank God our child left this school on time because its nothing to write home about...my son was there for a short while,yet we saw no improvement...it would have been better if he was home while i taught him myself because we couldn't see any changes that he was actually in school,no homeworks,they don't teach them how to read,infact this is not a school i'll recommend to anyone because a childs foundation matters a lot...Start up a child in a good school and see what the child becomes later on in future.no no school!
