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!
My Experice at Forest Hill High School has been amazing overall. I can't complain, this school has a variety of after school activities that are very exciting. Personally my favorite after school program is art club. The hallways are decorated with many forms of beautiful art. Walking down the hallways is like walking into an art museum. The Teachers and administration are very friendly, helpful and outgoing! They will do everything they can to help you in any way they can in school. The school is a very positive school and a very positive place to be. Making friends is very easy wonderful. No matter how weird you think you are or how much you think you don't fit in, you will always find a group of friends to fit in with. I have one more year to go and I'm happily looking forward to my senior year!
