    "The teachers could be better, but they taught me what I needed to know for college"

    "Most of the teachers I have had the privilege of being taught by, we're very good. Most teachers at Forestview will always stay after with you if you need help, and will answer questions in class. The teaching styles vary, which is good for different classes along with different learning styles."

    "A lot of the teachers do not have discipline, therefore the students in the class act up very easily. Those who do are harsh in their grading. There are a few that can create an effective and engaging atmosphere while enforcing the normal rules and regulations, but many just let the kids run wild, as though they do not care about teaching in the first place."

    "My time spent at Forestview has been great. The actual school to being with is beautiful, and the administration is mostly nice. Our school has a high school spirit, so everyone goes all out for almost everything. Jaguars (our mascot) everywhere within the school, all student made. We are huge about sports, but also the arts. I like the fact that Forestview does not just focus of athletics, but also the arts. Our art students participate in many competitions and receive many awards that are acknowledged school wide."

    "I've had classes with idiots, I've had teachers who are controlled by their emotions, and so far I've survived. I would not go back unless people in general start behaving respectfully and responsibly. Every day is surviving the gauntlet of hooligans. There are cliche cliques, narcissistic jocks, apathetic squads and basement-dwelling hackers. There is almost always a controversial conspiracy that arises regarding the faculty and staff. Most class time is useless and filled with either busy work or noisy conversations. I shouldn't complain too much, for many teachers would rather throw in 100s in the grade book than to actually teach. Only a few more days left, and I am still not prepared for college."
