    "My school is an awesome place to be. I enjoy the staff I get to work with. Kids are kids anywhere you go. I love all of mine, yes even the hard headed ones. Would have loved for mine to go here."

    "I've had at least one child at this school off and on for almost 10 years now. Forbes has a very caring and professional staff, and is led by an outstanding principal. The teachers are truly invested in their students' learning. However, over the last 3 years, this school district has changed in a dramatically negative direction. The district leadership has placed an emphasis on test scores over teaching, and data generation over learning. Once a shining example of service to special needs kids, the SPED leadership at the district level is obstructionist at best when expected to provide services to special needs kids. If you have a kid with special needs, you'd better have a lawyer because you will need it! From all indications, Forbes is a wonderful school and would thrive if the district personnel would get out of their way (as they used to). The asst. super in charge of middle schools is a micro manager, and teachers no longer have the time to meet together with colleagues to plan interventions with students. It is this way in the entire GISD. Extremely poor district leadership and a super who only cares about rubbing shoulders with community leaders."

    "Our experience at Forbes has been fabulous. The teachers are good and they invest in the students. The athletic programs are excellent and my daughter is thriving."

    "I am the one that wrote the post back in April 2010. I stand by my comment. I have had a great experience at this school to include administration staff, teachers, principals and many others. I have decided to move to another school district after this school for the school system difference and for personal reasons. I wish the high school would have the same experience as Forbes but I do not see that as a chance with feedback from friends and acquiatances. Excellent School! Go Forbes!"

    "this was a really great school. i had been moving from place to place and every school that i went to the kids there were mean and tried to tease me because i was the 'new kid'. but not at forbes. when i started going there i was very nervouse and sad. but the students and teachers made me feel very welcomed there. i think that this is a great school and hope that its here for a very long time. :)"
