My Forest Hill Community High School experience was amazing. I met great friends who helped me out when I was at my lowest. The teachers truly care for you and want to see you succeed. They offer amazing IB, AP classes and give you an opportunity to dual enroll. Forest Hill also offers varies of sports from football to golf. As well as clubs from Thespians to Student Government. The administration in this school makes you feel safe and are available for anything that you need. Forest Hill High School shaped me to be the person I am today and I am so thankful for all the opportunities they provided me.

I hate the School! Teachers don't really care about your success, the food is basic and majority of the kids don't care about school. Sports teams are average not enough equipments money is often times an issue.
A great school with a variety of programs to chose from to prepare you for college! Although some of the counselors are not as good as others, overall my experience with finding the right one has been excellent. Teachers are strict, but definitely understand if something is going on in your life. A very small portion of the teachers are not great at their job, but as long as you talk to a counselor about it you can definitely get switched out. Stay on track all four years because they’re all equally important!
