It was OK but the teachers use fear as a way to dicipline children and punish children when they don't know what truly happen

"Forest Street was ""my school."" I was the sixth grade teacher there during the 1970-71 school year, That was the most challenging, most satisfying, and very best of my 40 years of teaching. As with all schools in poorer neighborhoods, we still need to make immense strides in adjusting learning environments and expectations to the learners. That can be be said of any school population, but economic conditions are probably the most powerful impact of any on learning success. My biggest challenge was trying to work with a principal who was out of his element, very ""old school,"" and actually afraid of the parents. By Christmas, he was taking sick leave for the remainder of the school year and finally took a position elsewhere. I hope that was good for the great people of the Forest Street neighborhood. The fondest memories of my teaching remain with those good people of Forest Street from the 1970-71 6th grade."

"I can't say enough about this school and the staff. My son went there for 3 years, all of which he was constantly bullied and even jumped by 5 kids on the way home from school a few times. I had to watch at all times for signs of depression. It was overwhelming. They did not nothing but expel HIM from school for making something ""unallowed"" out of paper. Really? I'm glad we are moving to a better school district."

As a former student, and valedictorian of Forest Street School, i believe the school has done a wonderful job at allowing students to increase their prior knowledge, but the school lacks the experience to help struggling students to arrive at the required level. I just hope one day, the school will grow and improve... untill then, goodluck.
