    "As a whole, Forest High School (FHS) is okay. The teaching staff has a few teachers in every subject (Math, English, Science, Physical Education, etc.) that genuinely care about their student's future and well-being; and do things to motivate them to complete whatever they have to do reach their goals. These teachers are scarce, but are great! They are normally associated in honors/AP classes and tell you your grade, if your missing anything, and any homework/test/review material that you should study everyday. Within my four years of attending FHS, my assigned guidance counselor "Mr. Telford" was incredible. Ultimately I graduated Forest with over a 4.0 GPA and among the top school's graduating seniors. With that being said, FHS isn't a perfect pristine school. Most of the teachers and staff members lack matured/adult characteristics and act like adolescent teenagers that gossip behind other teachers and student's backs. That majority of employees often like to abuse their perceived 'power' by harassing students... I know this because the employees attempted to do these things to me, as-well as various students around campus. Even if you inform a superior employee (like an assistant principle or dean), they will often side with the obnoxious teacher/staff member (even if you have a substantial amount of evidence to prove your point). Therefore, FHS is a 3-starred "okay" rating."

    "Forest High School's non-academic base is awesome! The school has various extracurricular activities that make meeting new people extremely easy and enjoyable. The student's that attend FHS commonly associate themselves with like-minded individuals such as those that play instruments, film media, play sports, or like fashion. On the contrary, FHS's academics (ex. teaching staff) is not the best. The teachers and staff members love to gossip about students... which can be positive, but commonly negative. If I could go back in time and choose either going back to Forest High School or a different school in the area I would choose FHS. Even with the lack in academic savvy staff members, my experience with my guidance counselor, band instructors, and honors/AP teachers was great! They had important expertise in the areas after high school that led me to get to go to a honors 4-year university out of the state."
