Forestville is a great school. I have had 2 children go through Forestville. The teachers are Forestville provide a diversity of experiences and challenge the kids. Their AAP program is very good. Further, Forestville offers a lot of opportunity for the kids to expand their horizons beyond school such as through Odyssey of the Mind, afterschool programs, the school musical, etc.

Three children have done well and continue to do well in this school. It is because of great teachers, administration and PTA. But being involved really does make a difference . And the renovation will be great. Lets just hope no more budget cuts happen.

The principal and assistant principal are professional bullies. Assistant principal actually teaches Mr. Franklin on how to ignore students' and parents' needs and concerns. Academically, the school is pretty average, nothing significant about it - teaching to SOLs, not more, not less than that. Our community deserves a much better school than Forrestville Administration turned it into during the last 3 years.

Could not ask for a better school. My kids have thrived and are now moving on to middle school and they are very ready. Great AAP program. Thank you to everyone at Forestville.

My child is a kindergartner, so I can't really speak to the upper grades. I can say that I have been quite impressed with my child's classroom experience to date. My little one's teacher, Ms Kaeler, is extremely attentive and has fostered a loving and enriching environment for her children. She has instilled in them a strong sense of respect and compassion for their fellow classmates. I am also quite impressed by the special needs staff, which have played an indispensable role in my child's positive experience this year. If all the teachers at Forestville exhibit the same dedication not only to eductation, but to "life teaching," I will be very pleased with his elementary education.
