  • My child just left a cabarrus county school and he is now at forest park. His behavior has improved and his grades. I like his teacher. Great Attitude! I think that as a parent, it is my duty to ask questions about things that are of a concern to me. Communications is the Key! We can help our kids succeed by working with the teachers! Partners for Success!

  • I have 4 children. One in high school. One in middle school and two now at Forest Park. I feel that the teachers there are compassionate and really are involved with the children. I love the fact that we do not have a big debate over what to wear to school.

  • I am not impressed with Forest Park. The facility itself looks more professional than welcoming for small children. The facility is located in the middle of a bad neighborhood. The staff is very bland, especially the administrative staff. When I've called the school or visited the school, I've never received a positive attitude from any staff member. It's very disappointing. What a waist of tax funds.

  • Nothing about this school stood out to me. I didn't get a good first impression of this school. I'll be transferring my daughter out of Forest Park ASAP. I also don't care for the limited uniforms choices.
