At Forest Heights Community School, we believe all students can learn if we establish

high standards of learning that we expect all students to achieve.

 

 
-unite to achieve a common purpose and clear goals;
-work together in collaborative teams;

-seek and implement promising strategies for improving student

         achievement on a continuing basis;

-monitor each student’s progress;

-and demonstrate a personal commitment to the academic

         success and general well-being of all students.

Our student population is about 320 in grades 9 to 12.  Our school is a bussing school with a large geographic catchment area; north to New Ross and the Forties, south to Chester Basin, west to Martin’s River and east to Hubbards and the Aspotogan Peninsula.  We have approximately 43 staff including Teachers, Office Assistants, Program Support Assistants, Custodians, Cafeteria Workers, and Community School Staff.
