Forest Lake Public School District Reviews

18 reviews

The Forest Lake School District is a great atmosphere for teachers, students and parents. Every single teacher in the district is constantly rooting for our success as students. The students and teachers at every school in the district create a community and each school is unique in their own way to that. At Forest Lake you never have to worry about fitting in or having enough friends because its just one big family. However the downside in the district is budget cuts. The schools are consistently loosing teachers, class options, and extracurriculars as class sizes go up. The average class size at the high school is about 40 students, making it difficult to teach or learn. Many seventh and eighth grade sports have been cut, leaving many kids not able to play or playing at a level they shouldn't be at.

The Forest Lake public schools are very supportive, strong and full of hardworking staff members. The building could improve, but the construction that is underway should help with that!
I spent my entire childhood enrolled through Forest Lake Public School District. I enjoyed my entire academic career here. The staff at every school was amazing and helpful with any and all questions or problems i faced. I was very ready to enroll in college, and even attended pseo my senior year because of my academic scores being as high as they were.
