    If you have a high achieving child they do well. If you have a normal child it is difficult. If you have a child with special needs go elsewhere. Highly competitive environment with great extracurricular activities but we wanted academics to be the most important with extracurricular secondary. Very cliquish.

    I believe Forest Meadow is a great School for any child to attend however I think that the staff should investigate any queries that may come thru there office and please do not assume a child is guilty of anything due to his or her size or race. It would be nice to see the school acknowledge all cultures doing holidays. Currently the sign outside does not acknowledge Martin Luther King but instead it is honoring the trustees and that is ok to because they work hard as well but give the props to History. Be Fair our children see and do as we do. Thank you FMJH staff.

    Forest Meadow has been a great school for my son. They provide positive motivation for kids that are excelling academically through recognizing them with awards and having a chance to be on the National Honor Society. They have taken field trips to local colleges so that kids could get a feel for what college life would be like. They also hold kids accountable when they do not perform in the classroom by not allowing them to play sports when their grades fall below a 70 during a current six week cycle. They also have a good handle of controlling fights and gang activity. They also have good teachers in the Pre-AP courses.

    The parent involvement is outstanding. There are a lot of discipline problems and the student teacher ratio is to large in the regular classes.
