Forbush High School Reviews
I liked Forbush because it was different. We had classes that were Yadkin County related but also had the necessary classes. The teachers here are amazing and do a lot to ensure you're ready for college or to enter the work field. Administration stands behind their word to make Forbush the best it can be for students, faculty, parents and alumni. Their guidance department works with individual students to help prepare them for college. This department helps students apply to colleges, fix their resumes, cover letters, and anything else that may be needed for a job. They also assist in finding scholarships for students to apply for and help with FAFSA information.
For the past four years, I can proudly say that attending Forbush Highschool was a great experience. I immensely enjoy the community presented on campus. No matter where one glances, one can always see smiling faces, laughter, joy. Though I may not socialize with every individual on campus, students never fail to show companionship with a slight wave each and everyday! The teachers as well are so mindful of students. I’ve come to realize that to their abilities, they will do just about anything to help a student out whether it be in academics or in one’s personal life. I can say though, that I would have really liked if Forbush had more clubs to be in. Clubs like dance, photography, etc. Besides that, Forbush Highschool has given me many cherishable memories to hold on to!
Forbush High School is a one of a kind school that will bring you lot's of surprises. Whether that be the huge amount of people or the school lunch; this is a high school that unexpectedly gets the job done, and thrives it's students to achieve beyond what they can imagine. There are some flaws at Forbush, but overall I have had a great experience with not any trouble this year.
