    My son is in 4th grade and has gone to this school for two years. I am super impressed with the fourth grade teachers! They are extremely attentive to each kids needs. They all employ a fix and return policy that makes the child complete the work until it is 100% so this encourages problem solving and helps to learn the subject matter. The communication to parents is great and the principal is very caring and hands on.

    Forest Ave has an excellent early intervention program and they really cater to children that have special needs. They are consistantly involving parents in all decisions made for the children. I love the Pre-K program that Ms. Corley runs. What an outstanding group of professionals. Elijah's Mom and Dad
