    Principal’s Message


    Welcome Parents and Guests to the Forest Hills Elementary School’s Website!

    My name is Barbara Rothman, and I am the proud principal of this fabulous school. With 28 years in education, I look forward to serve a fourteenth successful year at this fabulous school where kids come to school to achieve amazing things! This year, our theme is “Wild About Learning”! We are excited to begin our academic expedition and personalize instruction for your child.

    Truthfully, I am not only the principal, but I am a former parent of this amazing school. Yes, I applied for a reassignment and drove my child over 40 miles daily just to bring my cherished gem to Forest Hills Elementary! It was certainly not because of convenience that I brought my daughter to my school. It was solely because of the quality education that I knew my child was going to receive and so will your child!  

    Forest Hills is a school for all! We are proud to be home of a unique innovative program called Quantum Leap. This is a highly accelerated program for high achievers and gifted students who demonstrate leadership skills. We also focus on our ESE population both in fully inclusive classrooms as well as our self -contained Autism Spectrum Classrooms. We also have two totally free as well as full-time V.P.K. classrooms with certified elementary school teachers and highly qualified teacher assistants. Our school also offers E.S.E. Programs for a variety of preschoolers. Our mission is to provide all children with a personalized instructional pathway to ensure a solid educational as well as socio-emotional foundation for all of our students!

    We believe in enrichment! Forest Hills offers art to all elementary aged students. We have a music program in which students benefit from a piano lab as well as a fully equipped music lab. Our curriculum also includes a Physical Education special program for our elementary students as well. Our media center is visited by all of our students to ensure that our children have quality books easily accessible to them.

    Forest Hills, Home of the Ranger Bears, believes in encouraging students to become a part of our community. Hence, we provide a multitude of afterschool clubs, school hour rewarding activities and expeditions as well as a spectacular aftercare program. Our aftercare program strives to ease your mind while you are away. Rest assured that your cherished gem is cared for and enjoying extracurricular activities while participating in our aftercare program.

    Truthfully, I can continue bragging about our dedicated staff and stellar programs. I know that you will love our school and hope that you will call to inquire a bit more. I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to peruse through our websites and hope that we will see you soon. Parents, please know that my staff and I are here to assist you.

    Looking Forward to an Amazing School Year!

    Mrs. B. Rothman, Ed.S.

    Proud Principal of the Most Amazing School EVER!
