    "This is by far the best school in the county. We have an amazing arts program, which none of the other schools have the ability to boast about. We are a STEM certified school, which means that our school went through extensive judging and critiquing to see if it actually qualified to become accredited, which it did. Our sports teams are rapidly growing in competitiveness. All of the teachers are amazing, I have not had a single incompetent teacher or one that I did not like. The atmosphere at the school is amazing, cliques really don't exist. Everyone here is friends with everyone, we don't have fights, we don't have gang violence, we do not have racism. All of these things are hearsay from people trying to degrade the reputation of an amazing school. All of our administrators are amazing, including our new principal Mr. Young, who is truly trying to improve on an already amazing school. If you decide to take your child to another school in the county you a're harming them not helping them. Nowehere else will you find such a loving community with faculty so passionate about what they do."

    "This is an excellent school. Although it is the oldest high school in Forsyth County, it is by far the best in terms of caring teachers, challenging academics, availability of athletic programs, drama, chorus, the STEM Academy, and home of the Flash of Crimson (one of the best band programs in the southeastern US). My kids love this school and did not want to go anywhere else when given the option. Yes, there are newer high schools in Forsyth County, but they cannot come close in comparison to Central. Just because other schools in the county might be shiny and new, that does not make them a better school. There is a pride that emanates from FCHS students as they navigate their way through their high school experience. They graduate this school with skills and experiences that have enriched their lives and have prepared them for the road ahead. There is no better high school in Forsyth County. I am the proud parent of two current students and one FCHS honors graduate. If you want your child to get an excellent education and have fun in sports, band, STEM or other activities along the way, enroll them in Forsyth Central. They will love it."

    "If I could give 0 stars I would. Please do not send your child here.. We came from West and have continually been disappointed. Most of the teachers are not knowledgeable, the school itself is poorly run and outdated. The administration is unhelpful. There is a growing drug/alcohol problem, although that seems to be prevalent at many schools in this county. Forsyth central has to be the worst school I've seen to date... a joke to the county. If you want a good school, Lambert, West, or South are your best bet."

    "I have 2 children attending Forsyth Central and have had a fantastic experience. We attended another South Forsyth high school in years past and found Forsyth Central to be the most diverse high school in the county! We love it here! The administrative personnel could not be more accommodating and friendly."

    "Just a warning: stay as far away as you can. It is really a shame to have this school in the county."
