Forest Park High School, in the beginning, was not an ideal learning environment; however, as time passed, conditions were improved upon. From what I have witnessed, the school has a good infrastructure in terms of teachers and personnel. One of the greatest flaws of the school is the student body. In order to have an adequate school, you need a cohesive synergy between the teachers and students. Students at Forest Park tend to neglect their education and do not care about anything. As a result, a majority of the students waste away their potential when they can be achieving much more. The people I do surround myself by are some of the smartest and intellectual people I know.

Love the diversity in students and teachers. My school has culture, that will always stay within the person I am. My school also shows panther pride in every aspect- from clubs and organizations to sports and of course academics. One of my favorites from FPHS, is our panther pillars- positive, prepared, punctual and polite. Although, administration may need a few touch ups! Forest Park High has a few of very welcoming teachers who can make this place feel like home! Lastly, Viva Mr. Pue... his soul will forever live here.
Forest Park High School is located in Clayton County Georgia. Overall, my experience with this school has been fine. The school host many community events, and also have many organizations and clubs that are involved in the community. The only thing that I would fix or change is the lunch time. Lunches are approx. 20 minutes or shorter depending on the length of the line. Otherwise, Forest Park High School is a great school to attend, and has a high graduation rate!
