    "We started this school with K and 5th grade students, both of whom had attended high performing schools prior too. I was reluctant for a few reasons, one the reputation was questionable and two, the GreatSchools Rating. I have to say, I am so pleased and happy that our kids are attending this school. The new principal is active in promoting parent engagment events, the teachers are all equiped with the latest in teaching tools, many of them using technology such as tablets as well as smart boards in the classroom. The facilities are clean and have all the amenities a parent would want for their child in a school. All in all, very happy our two kids go here."

    "I attended J.V. Forrestal as a little kid. I am a Forrestal Falcon. No words can describe your home school as a little kid. The teachers were very nice, several could be strict, but they taught you how to be respectful, your hands behind your back while walking formally in the hallways, you didn't talk in the hallways, you walked single-file or double-file depending on the situation. The teachers were very good. I can still faintly remember some of the very good examples that helped me learn english and other things. There was lots of time with the class as a whole. In Kindergarten, we went on field trips to Beacon& other places. We got to see our little city doing different things. There were various other activities we did. Forrestal did a great job with family events and the staff is wonderful. Was moved to Sargent. Nothing like J.V."

    "JV Forrestal is a 'family' school. It holds events once a month for the families and tries to get EVERYONE involved. The staff provides a caring and loving environment where the children are encouraged to do their best and succeed."
