In a leap of faith, I transferred to Thee Forest Hill and the scholars, teachers, and staff took me in with open arms. Band is a perfect example of how unity at Forest Hill has strengthened my character. Never was there a time when someone wasn't encouraging me or stressing the theme of family. Just as a family, things are not always perfect and we get on each other about things, but we always come back together.

Forest Hill has a lot of activities going on. There is always something being started, which is great for the kids. However, I think there should be stricter bullying rules set in place and more organization throughout the school. It seems like a cluster of things at times. Good potential
My experience throughout the last three years at Forest Hill has been a challenging task. There are many areas that are in need of improvement at Forest Hill. Academic wise, many scholars that attend this school will receive the knowledge intended for success.
