Forsyth R-III School District Reviews

I have enjoyed my three years at Forsyth. Every student at Forsyth High School are expecting and make everyone feel welcome. In my opinion, the students had to get this from somewhere. I think it starts in the classroom. The teachers at Forsyth do a great job at teaching. If you don't understand something they stay after or come in to make sure you get all the information you need. It is such a great feeling to have such so many caring people around.

Forsyth is a great school. It is small, but has a tight-knit community. Most of the students are friends or at least friendly with everyone else in the school. The teachers all care a lot about educating the students and about the students themselves. My time at Forsyth has been amazing and I can’t describe how grateful I am for meeting the teachers and students that are here.
This school district went above and beyond in creating programs suited for a variety of students. As a former member of their Gifted program, I can attest to the effort and hard work that goes in to such programs. The teachers put in a lot of effort in preparing their students for college and for the future, and overall provide a sense of encouragement and belonging. There is not a high diversity rate at this school, but there is a high graduating rate. One of my personal favorite aspects was the A+ scholarship opportunity I took advantage of in high school.
