The Forest Hills School District kindergarten program is shaped by the belief that all children are capable, engaged learners who thrive in a child-centered, safe environment. Students develop a curiosity and excitement for learning in a setting that promotes positive academic, social and emotional development. Forest Hills’ innovative program is designed to promote discovery and choice, as well as develop the strengths and address the needs of each child, to help students build a strong foundation for future success. The kindergarten classroom celebrates diversity and individual student contributions.
