Forest View is a brilliant place to learn! It is mostly a Science Focus school. Forest View try's to get all of their students involved in different things. Everyday the student depending on their grade, goes to "specials". Specials is when they get to do either Music, Art, PE, Technology, Drama, Science Lab, Guidance, etc. depending on their grade or the day. In my opinion, I think that the 5th Grade teachers are the best. They are the most educated.

I cannot speak highly enough of Forest View. The staff, teachers and administrators are wonderful. The school feels like a community for our family. My two children, though vastly different from each other in their learning styles and personalities, have both felt supported and secure here. Teachers, even those who are not their own, know their names and are welcoming and clearly happy to be here. The school-wide behavioral positive reinforcement program is outstanding, and really gives Forest View a wonderfully positive atmosphere.

A Science Focus school that practices its philosophy of "hands-on learning" with great teachers, great facilities, and great results.

From our oldest son's first day of kindergarten, we have been extremely pleased with Forest View. The caring teachers and staff understand each child's ability and strive to meet them where they are and encourage them to excel. Our oldest son is now in 4th grade and our younger son is in 1st grade. We love the community feel of the school - lots of parents take time to help out with programs like the Fall Festival, Science Share, and Multicultural night. We really feel fortunate that Forest View is our neighborhood school.

I have two children at Forest View and used to teach there. Forest View is an outstanding school with a wonderful group of dedicated teachers and administrators. The sense of community among students, teachers and parents is very strong, and my children have always felt connected and cared for. The student body is very diverse, representing many different nationalities and speaking a variety of different languages. The school is a science focus school and has a strong emphasis on outdoor learning, with several gardens that students help care for all around the school. Forest View as always and forever will feel like home to our family!
