Having grown up in private schools, I was reluctant at first to send my children to a public school. However, I found the years and memories my children experienced at Forrestal were worth their weight in gold. Thank you to all the staff at Forrestal!

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
