  • I am a rising junior at East Forsyth and I absolutely love the school. I can not say enough about some of the teachers at the school. They are wonderful and they always take the time to help you if you ask. They really take the time to develop personal connections and genuinely care about their students. Some have become great mentors to me and I can see myself keeping in touch with them years after I graduate. Our principal is friendly and always takes the time to attend sporting events after school. She is also in touch with the needs of the school and the students. There is a huge array of extracurricular activities at our school. There is a club for just about every interest imaginable and several sports teams. I feel very safe at East. We have School Resource Officers who can often be seen around the school and there are very few fights. In my experience thus far, I think the homework load is appropriate for most classes. It is to be expected that higher level classes will have a larger homework load. East Forsyth has been a great place to learn and I have had such a positive experience at the school. I would recommend this school to anyone. I absolutely love it!
