    "Forreston is a great school. It is a very tight knit community. The students have been together since Pre-K and everyone has grown up with everyone. There is not much diversity. The academics are difficult due to a weighted grading scale. But it prepares the children for college since college is normally on the same grading scale. Football is huge at Forreston. On Friday nights the whole town is down at the football field cheering on the mighty Cardinals. They have won the State Championship title two times in the past three years (2014 and 2016). Other activities is band, chorus, art, cheerleading, dance, volleyball, track, wrestling, boys/girls track, softball, baseball, academic bowl and much more. It is truly a great school and I am blessed to have been apart of the school district for 15 years. I have friends that I have known since Preschool and I know I will continue being friends long after my years in Forreston."

    "I like the way the teachers interact with each child individually. They act like all of the students are actually individuals. One thing I would change about the school is more clubs and organizations to be able to take part in."

    "I always felt very safe at school. However, some of the teachers did seem to not care at all about the students, but then there were the teachers that went out of their way to help each student. Also, sports ruled the school. Basically there was no room for other clubs, and they did not hold as much importance as sports did. Also, there was not almost any clubs offered either. There were a lot of nice classes but there are not any AP or college prep classes offered."
