    The school system is great. My child's 3rd grade teacher ms. Emerson is great. She inspires my child to want to learn. If I have any concerns she makes herself available to address the issue. Some of the programs need to be more academically challenging to some of the advanced students. The extracurricular activities are great. I am constantly involved in my child's school activities and I find the teachers at north forrest elementary very helpful and willing to help the children succeed.

    North Forrest Elementary is a great small school. The classes are small enough that your child will benefit with one on one teaching. The school offers music P.E. and many more activities to be involved in. Mrs. Sims is the new principal and is doing a great job of getting our school to the level it should be.
