    "Forest Hills has been the best option that we have taken, is a school that looks like a big family. we are very happy with the education that our son is receiving. both teachers and office staff are friendly and approachable people. we hope not to have to move out of the area so that our son can continue his studies at Forest Hills Elementary. Thanks for all the care and dedication that you share with our children."

    "I don t put much stock in anonymous website post as many of the comments tend to be ambiguous however I find the statements made on 11/7 to be incredulous thus warranting a rational response. In quoting BCSB Superintendent Robert Runcie, it takes a village to raise a child , in other words everyone needs to be involved in the raising and education of our (their) children. Although I am not in a position to rebut any of the statements made pertaining to FHE s field day or the volunteer in question I can only assume the person writing these statements is in no way a part of the FHE village . Mature, educated, and responsible parents will usually attempt to speak with someone of authority about their concerns prior to posting a bully-like threat behind a curtain of anonymity. I take my child s education and security very seriously which is why I have volunteered countless hours at the school, taken the time to get to know my child s teachers, and befriended the school s outstanding Resource Officer. In the future I suggest using the free time you found to write the previous post to focus on teaching your three children the proper etiquette for resolving legitimate concerns. S Lewis"

    "Just read some of the comments here. As for the school letter grade, the State of Florida keeps playing with the scores which determine the grades. Do your research and you will see that there was a huge drop in scores statewide because they keep playing with what is a passing score. What is taught at school is set in Tallahassee and Florida is now part of Common Core. From what I've read, this is not a good thing for kids or their teachers. They are all being pushed to their limit with lots of stress for all. When teachers give their own time to run a club or go to a parent night, to me, it shows they care deeply about their students."

    "My 3 children attend this school from 5th grade to 2nd grade and as of 2013 its becoming more of negelect than just budget cuts. Field day 4 children got broken bones with casts with not even a follow up phone call to one of them, 1 member, volunteer, member of cspd is asking kids questions as what a predator would but the school and cspd back this gentleman up to be a law binding citizen even thought a 9 yr old feel victimized to a careless act. You use to be able to speak to the staff with concern and they were on top of it, but now you can attend a mcdonalds night and all staff and teachers stick to themselves. Something is majorly wrong and on my word is being brought up to the board soon."

    "I reference to the unnecessary comment about FHE C rating was unnecessary. Some individuals fail to realize that FHE is an educational institute and not a day care. FHE has and still holds A rating in schools through broward county. i have 3 children 2 already graduated and 1 in 4th grade. With my many years of experience i have seen dedicated teachers and staff nurture my children to the well educated and well mannered future leaders they are today. FHE offers many fun but educational clubs and activities during school for those who don't KNOW! (chess club, music, eg). Also for those who don't know that though with the massive cuts in the county FHE still excels and makes the grade. With the leadership of Ms.Rothman , teachers and FHE staff, our children will be able to excel and survive in our ever changing society. Thank you to our FHE PTO for the spring fling my children enjoyed every minute.*******FOR THOSE WHO MAKE COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR CHILDRENS SCHOOL AND MAKE BAD REMARKS, BEFORE YOU COMMENT MAKE SURE YOU ARE INFORMED AND INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF EDUCATING YOUR CHILD. I INCOURAGE YOU TO VOLUTEER AND BE PART OF THE TEAM!!!!!! DON'T SIT ON THE SIDELINES."
