Forsan is a great school for students, but sometimes I feel like not enough effort is being made. I feel like some of the administration could be looser on some of the students. Students act out when under pressure and pushing rules down their throats only seems to make the situation worse. I feel like academics could be better and that more time needs to be spent looking into the IT departments. More attention needs to be paid to the well being of the students and not on specific programs. I also feel like more needs to be done to prepare students for life in the real world as well as the process of looking for a applying for colleges. Many students do not know how to do it on their own and some have parents that cannot help. I also feel as if more needs to be done in the counselor department to further expand the ability to help students. Students should not feel scared or intimidated by administration either.

I have attended Forsan since kindergarten. The teachers work hard to prepare us for exams and college, but there have been a few that I am not entirely sure how they managed to get hired. The school works hard to get students involved in the band and sports programs, as well as academic UIL events. The facility is always very clean and well prepared. I have enjoyed my experiences at Forsan High School and am looking forward to the next three years I have ahead of me.
Of course all teachers are different in their teaching styles, but at Forsan most of the teaching staff has a very sound and effective way of teaching. The teachers did great with what they were given!
