1 review for Forsyth Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on March 31, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My children love Forsyth Elementary. I like the school because if they are not count as present in class, the school calls me. Since they're both bus riders ages 8 and 10, knowing that the school secretary calls to see where they are is comforting. If some psycho abducted a child from a bus stop and if the school didn't call to see where they are the results could be devistating, the abductor/kidnapper could be miles (even into two-three states from Forsyth before you would notice that they didn't walk back through the door at the time that they usually arrive from school) away. I absolutely love this policy especially! P.S. Why isn't there a football team anymore? It's not fair to the little boys that want to play football!
