    "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."

    "I am currently in sixth grade, I've been here since kindergarten. All of my seven years here have been wonderful. I have learned so many things and created so many memories and friendships. The connected that teachers create are amazing because they make an effort and it has a tremendous outcome on the student. I don't even know a single thing that I would change to make Forestville a better school. I have had so much fun here, I cannot even explain. I have so many friendships that last to this day, because I met them at this school. I don't know what has happened to other children who have attended this school but I believe that I speak for the majority of students when I say this: Forestville Elementary is a wonderful school. I would recommend it to all parents and children. If you are interested in the AAP part: I am in AAP, and I have been in since third grade, the grade that AAP starts. The program is fantastic. It allows you to learn better and quicker. You grasp the information and learn it quickly with the amazing teachers. I've had a lot of projects and all of them have been so much fun. I would recommend AAP to all qualified children."

    "We are looking forward to the end of the school year to get out of here. All good reviews for this school are based on its glory in the past when the previous principal took care of the kids' educational needs. Today, with the new principal the school is a joke. Many good teachers have left. Most of those who "teach" there now are nothing but overly confident below average "wanna be professionals". The school's low test scores reflect this perfectly - sadly enough they do teach to SOL, and yet can't even get that right. Class sizes are huge. Our kid is BORED in classroom and has a teacher who shouldn't be called a teacher at all, as she doesn't understand basics of teaching. Their new "counselor" is totally incapable of dealing with kids or parents, when there is no issue she manages to create one. To justify her existence? The only bright side are the afterschool activities, but the news are none of them will be available next school year when the school is going to be remodeled. Overall, this is by far the worst school and worst administration in the area. Don't be fooled, keep your child away from this disaster."

    "Forestville Is an outstanding school in so many ways. First, it offers educational programming that ventures outside of the state standards of learning (SOL) such as project based learning, advanced academic curriculum, Teachers as Leaders three year grant focusing on the development of higher order thinking skills, Renzulli Learning for all etc. Secondly it offers a wonderful education for all students, not just a select group, e.g. self contained Category B special education class, full time ESOL program, educators ranging from 30+ year veterans to early hire new professionals who are among the best in the state, "retake to mastery" formative and summative assessment policy, and other cutting edge initiatives. Thirdly, a wonderful student body is encouraged to show good citizenship through a vibrant Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program (PBIS), complete with over 15,000 Cardinal Compliments earned annually, and an adorable mascot Forest the Cardinal, plus an excellent counseling program which focuses on character development. Lastly (though there is so much more), the parents are wonderfully supportive as they put in thousands of volunteer hours annually and more!"
