I must say that I have been nothing but pleased with this school. My daughter has been a student there since 1st grade and has only excelled! The difference in this school's quality and that of the rest of the schools in this county is evident! I agree with the reviewer that called it a "private public school", because that is exactly what it feels like. The staff is great, the curriculum is great; I couldn't have asked for anything more.

We have had 3 children go to Forest Avenue. Our son started in 4th grade which we had heard would be a nightmare. But, he had an amazing year with the best teachers. Now we have a kindergartner and a 3rd grader. Our experience has been wonderful. The teachers really care about the kids and they enrich the learning in such a way that it is fun. We had been at another school which was also good but didn't challenge the kids. This one does. I highly recommend it to all my friends. Jan Hill has done a great job bringing in good teachers and running a TOP RATE school.

Forest Ave is the best public school hands down!!! They expect alot but what more can you ask for when they are teaching our children to be the leaders of our future.They also just received the President's Blue Ribbon award, only the third school in the State to receive this Award!!! Excellent!!! I am very proud to be a part of this world class educational establishment!!!

So far, I have been more than pleased with Forest Avenue. I was extremely nervous at the thought on my son entering kindergarten at such a large school, but it has been a wonderful place for him. The school has an excellent staff of administrators and teachers. The parent involvement really makes the difference here.

This school has been the best experience we could have asked for! My child's kindergarten experience has been amazing. It's only nine weeks into the school year and she is reading! If your child is blessed enough to be in Mrs. Bertolotti's classroom, you are in a for a treat!

I have been very pleased with Forest Avenue. What this school offers to the students and how they challenge them is exactly what I was looking for in a school for my son. Excellent school with great teachers and a great staff from the top down.

We're new to the school, but we're excited to be there. I've been a teacher in Montgomery County for 14 years and I've always heard wonderful things about the school. I have other kids that went to public school in Montgomery, and the quality of education can't compare. My oldest child didn't read until the first semester was over in 1st grade, but my child at FAAM is only in her 1st 9weeks of school in kindergarten and she's already reading. (By the way, my oldest child maintains a 4.0 at Baldwin Academic Magnet School.) I wish all public schools could have such high expectations. It is like a public private school at Forest Ave.!

Forest Avenue is the best. Plain and simple. The students, teacher, staff, and parents are the best there are. I'm so proud to be a part of the FAAMily. I consider it a great blessing for my son to be a student there. Mrs. Hill runs the school exceptional well.

I absolutely love Forest Ave Elementary. I can see the difference any my child everyday when she comes home excited about learning. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The school really does feel like a family and everyone cares about the outcome. The school is extra clean. We love the school and home one day my youngest will be able to attend. I know my child is getting the best education possible. I want her to be ready for the future.

Both of our children are at Forest Avenue and have been since Kindergarten. They both had Mrs. Bertolotti who is the BEST kindergarten teacher, (I'm biased, what can I say.) She is wonderful. My younger child was struggling at the beginning and she really helped us help him. I appreciate her soooo much. Now he is in the 2nd grade and doing great.

My oldest child is in the 5th grade and she has Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Vinson. She will be going to Baldwin next year. We have been very pleased, even though the work load is a lot more than other schools, projects, etc., but I know they will be ready when it is time to continue to Jr. High.

Forest Avenue is a great school to send your child to. The teachers are amazing and they help students learn to their fullest potential. Forest Avenue is a clean and up to date school, where your child will learn a great deal of knowledge.

I have three children at Forest Avenue. I will be very honest in saying I am very glad to be getting my oldest out this year as he graduates from 5th grade. The work is harder than your average elementary school, and they have a lot of extra projects, but I have noticed with all three of mine that if you try you can succeed. My youngest, a 1st gader struggled early on but now is trying harder and doing much better. This school is a lot of extra projects and work but you know that when your child leaves it to continue into Jr. High that they will be ready. I am truly blessed to have all of my children there. Did I say the teachers and staff are the best in the city! Yes, I guess I am bias but that is the truth.
