Forestburg School is a very small close knit rural school. It is extremely safe and my kids have done very well here. The teachers love what they do and it shows. We have had some trouble keeping teachers who love the rural lifestyle, and so our teacher turnover has been higher due to that fact. We have fierce longhorn pride and almost all of our students are involved in either sports, FFA or some other club on campus. The care and concern of this school's staff and administration is a breath of fresh air. This new year is exciting with fresh academic plans, goals, and new teachers in place. Each student will get the support that they need here. Each one is very special with a very bright future ahead of them. Forestburg school will stand behind each of their students to help them succeed in their school career and beyond. May God bless Forestburg ISD and all who attend school there.

Coming to Forestburg has been a telling experience about the failure of the education system and the toxicity of small town politics. Here, my education has been a shell of what it was in other schools I have attended. This being my final year of high school I had no way to switch, so now I am stuck with teachers who have no clue how to teach, a learning environment that allows sports to take priority over everything else, and an administration that will not stand up for my education.
It has slowly become worse. It is no longer as organized as it used to be when I was younger. The teachers has gotten better during my high school experience. The went from not cared at all and not being able to teach to actually trying. However the coaches haven't been the best.
