6 Parent Reviews for Forest Lake School

The teachers are wonderful at forest lake. They are hard working and caring professionals. I feel so lucky my children got to experience such a great staff.

Considering the lack of financial support Wantagh gives its schools, the educators rise above it and are tops. Admin and teachers give their all to our kids. If you want a country club you have to pay for it.

Typical Nassau county School. All teachers teach to the test. No 'critical thinking skills' taught whatsoever. PTA very clicky, Principle seems to be very unable to lead. Teachers may be overburdened with large class sizes. Forest Lake feels like just another cattle ranch.

Below average school at best. Principal provides no leadership, no clubs for kids, only activities and programs provided are thru PTA. State test scores are the lowest out of the 3 elementary schools in the district.

Lovely school,close knit 'family' atmosphere. Strong parent involvement. Very good programs offered, including 'gifted' students program. Lacking formal auditorium. Wonderful atmosphere for learning and comraderie.

* 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.
