Love that my child has gotten to be a part of the Forrest family! Great school! Passionate about their sports and still pray/sing national anthem before sporting events! Love how the community supports the kids and they get a wonderful high school education. My only suggestion is an improvement of college readiness options! More choices and prep for the kids to be prepared for college.

The education isn't good. There are few teachers that actually do their job well. The coaches don't actually teach, they just sit and play videos or give bookwork. A lot of the funding goes toward the more popular sports like football and basketball. Softball and soccer don't get the type of funding or support that those sports do. It's disappointing. As well as that. certain clubs don't get as much recognition as they should. This school could really use some work.
I would like to see the arts programs be able to grow. The current academics are adequate, but I felt unprepared for college because the classes do not push students. The courses are structured to pass students instead of helping students learn the material.
