    Our son moved in high school from west coast due to unavoidable family circumstances. FCDS welcomed our son with open arms made his move effortless. The faculties were student centered, personally involved and their communication was very honest, positive and frequent. The students and social environment were very receptive, welcoming and tolerant. Our son easily made many good friends and quickly absorbed in the community. The young, inspirational, innovative, effective, motivational and energetic upper school principal Mr. Manna was personally involved in every step and provided an appropriate guidance and mentoring. There was sufficient parental involvement in every step. He has now completed first year, and feels at home. Thank you FCDS for nurturing him, providing him needed support to cope up with academically challenging courses he took and allowing him to grow outside the class room.

    As someone who spent their entire K-12 education at FCDS I would say there is no better place to enroll your child. Compared to the public school system and other private college preparatory schools in the Triad; FCDS is head and shoulders above others in terms of college readiness and academics. The many complaints about the school come from students who do not work hard and find themselves in non-academic trouble. Forsyth has also provided me with a platform to play college sports at one of the best schools in the country, and for that I am grateful.
    At FCDS there a few problems that should be changed
    1. The tuition costs too much- some universities don't cost as much as FCD, if the school makes the tuition less, they will have more students which will make up for the lost profit of lowering tuition.
    2. The education needs to be less focused on arts- there are lots of projects that are too focused on other things rather than the core values of the subject
    3. The school is heavily influenced by politics- During "Morning Meeting", adults/teachers share their political opinions which are enforced into everyday life.
    Other than those problems, the Forsyth Country Day School is a great place to learn.
