My experience with Forrest City High was amazing! I transferred to Forrest City high when I was a Junior, when I got there everyone was welcoming, from the teachers to the students. I liked how the teachers and administration actually wanted children to succeed and helped them do so. The school constantly had events going on that kept the school spirit in the students. When students become seniors the help and college advise is sensational. I was able to obtain a total of 106,000 dollars with the help of teachers and front office administration. My 106,000 consisted of two full rides, 3 partial scholarships, and other offerings. Thanks to Forrest City High I am able to guide myself and others in the right direction!

It’s a great school filled with teachers who want to help students grow and expand their own horizons, I personally wish that I could the basic adult learning necessities for a(n) manageable life like, how to file for taxes, how to do my own taxes, how to plan for retirement etc.
Forrest City High School is an excellent school. They have many opportunities to advance your education. The educators care about each student. The school calls parents and advises them of any events coming up. The school has many counselors always on duty, ready to assist any student. Many students are able to take college courses through a local college online due to a state funded grant. The school allows library classes to fulfill the college courses. They have many academics available, depending on what you're interested in. The lunch could be better. This school even has a chess club. There are many clubs you can join, depending on what you're interests are.
