Forreston is very family-oriented. During times of tragedy, the community all comes together. There are a lot of wonderful classes. The attendance at football games is high, as well.
There was too much bullying, pressure on students, terrible teachers, not many classes to choose from, and if you weren't an athlete you were essentially nothing.
