    "I currently have two children attending this school. I wish there was more options of a bilingual classses other than one for their grade. I also have notices several changes of aides in one of my child's classrooms - probably due to budget constraints. Forestdale, being an "International" school, I was suprised to find a staff member car with anti-immigrant bumper stickers. I was offended and I am suprised the school whose intention to foster multi-cultural pluralism, isn't following through by tolerating staff members that have slogans like, "protect our borders" on their cars."

    "Parents are given the opportunity to participate with their children's learning. This teamwork is essential for student success. There is an openness for new ideas, techniques, and diversity. Most of the teachers are truly dedicated along with the staff. The principal works well with all aspects of the school."

    "The special education program at this school leaves alot to be desired. The system as a whole has some major issues, but the 'sweep it under the rug mentality' and 'your kid must need outside counciling' theory thrown around with all too much regularity is getting tiresome. I'm afraid there are no answers available or an end in sight. God help our kids is all I can say."

    "I have a daughter currently in 2nd grade in the traditional program. She has 45 minutes of Spanish as part of her specials. The school also offers a dual language program in which children learn both English and Spanish about 50/50 split. So far my daughter has loved every teacher she has had. As a parent I have felt that each teacher personally cares about my child and wants her to succeed. My husband was very impressed when he went to a ngiht time event and every teacher there seemed to know my daughter by name. The new principal is great and a major improvement over the principal that retired after my dd's kindergarten year. The new one is very approachable to both parents and students. Staff such as librarian, cafeteria workers etc all show respect for students."
