Parent Emily Cox's story

We have now had five years of excellence all-around in the Forest View Elementary School community due to passionate teachers and support staff. My children have had some excellent reading, math, science, art and cultural enrichment. My first child attended Forest View Elementary School in Durham, NC for kindergarten and first grade. He had a great experience and we returned to Forest View three years ago when our daughter was in the 2nd grade, after a few years in a local charter school.

We thought the lower class size of the public charter school system would enable the most effective teacher-student interactions, so when a new charter school opened we brought both our kids there for four years. After giving the charter school experience our best effort, we decided to return to Forest View Elementary and we are glad we did.
