I loved going to Forest High School. It may be a small school, but the thing good about it is that everyone knows everyone & we all interact with each other, including students with teachers. The teachers try their hardest with every student & even students help other students with work & tutoring. We have an amazing principal & an amazing assistant principal. They are both very interactive with every part of the school whether it's band, choir, athletics, academics, & teachers.
I love my extracurricular activities. They are the bes!
