  • Well the school is under a new principle right now who is still trying to get the "hang-of" everything. But as a student there I would like to say that this school could be alot better run our teachers' abilities to educate are being limited by this rule that they are only allow 700 copies a month. When you limit the teachers ability to teach you limit the students ability to learn, and FCHS has alot of excellent and hard working teachers. And I understand that the school is in fiscal distress and needs to save money but budget cuts should be made else were and not in the number of copies per teacher. I personally believe once our principle becomes more comfortable and we get out of this little financial bind that we are in the FCHS will be a "5 Apple" school

  • This is a wonderful school. Ms. Robinson is the best principal in the country, very fair and very motivating. All the teachers are very dedicated and professional. I've lived in Forrest City most of my life and wouldn't trade my education there for anything.

  • I was going to express my thoughts of this school but I could be sued so all I will say is the teachers,(most),the faculty,(most) and the administrators and supervisors could do a lot better than they are,real school issues such as safety for the students are to me over looked for the most part and a lot more
