I have been attending Forney High School for nearly four years. Forney has its pros and cons. I like how it is very family-oriented. The slogan is. "Forney Family." Everyone is family we treat each other with respect and kindness. There have been some downfalls throughout the past years at Forney. Such as hazing, bullying, and teacher and student relationships. However, since we have had Dr.Campbell, our new Principal, Forney has definitely improved. Now we have different clubs that students can attend to prevent all the bad stuff from happening. One club that I attend is Bible study!

I recently moved to Forney High as an early graduate. The environment in the school is 10 times better than my previous school. I thought making friends and being involved and recognized was going to be harder though Forney High made it pretty easy on me! Will be forever thankful for the staff! Every aspect of the school, including parents, academics and sports are a huge part of what makes the school great!
The fine arts at Forney is terrific! The students and teachers put in their time and effort to ensure their students to be successful. The school over all is well-rounded. Students are taught the essentials for college and there are teachers who push there students for success. Forney High School, overall is a good school and is improving with each year.
