I'm not sure i would recommend this school to anyone. The staff is very unorganized there is no communication when it comes to afterschool clubs or activties.They send a calendar home with club dates that they don't follow by and they cancel them without giving parents any notice.

It is not known what types of activities are offered before the third grade. K-2, nothing. The only thing good about this school is the after care program. Ms. Kim is fabulous.

The teachers at Forest Park are working very hard to make sure their students pass the FCAT! This is a great school.

The sad thing about this school is that there is not alot of parent envolvement. The staff is very caring but they can only do so much. They have the best aftercare program around. It is really a shame that they loose great students to other schools.
