Elizabeth Forward has made great memories for anyone that I have talked too or heard stories about. At Elizabeth Forward there are a plethora of things to do, football, basketball, volleyball games. The students take sports and their education very seriously. In the graduating class of 2019 there are about 194 students graduating, therefore if you like smaller schools it would be a perfect fit!

The teachers at Elizabeth Forward are phenomenal and strive to go beyond the curriculum. However, the administrators at this school are hypocritical figureheads. The PBIS program they have implemented to create a positive learning environment only perpetuates bullying and fails to foster a supportive environment for all students. They allow troublesome students to continue to cause disruptions and ignore the hard working students that strive for academic success. The administration also funds causes that counteract learning. Within the past few years, they have implemented iPads into the school district with the hopes of achieving a paperless academic setting. However, with daily technology errors, learning curves, and a lack of support, students and teachers alike have found the iPads to only further disrupt the educational environment. The most revealing aspect of the school is how few students find pride in going here.
I loved the teachers and how supportive they are of the vocational program. I attended 5 classes a day and they were interesting & always fun! The teachers, principals, and staff are so supportive and really want what's best for their students.
