Forest Hills School District’s Human Resources department is committed to recruiting and retaining talented employees who desire to educate and support Forest Hills students! Approximately 890 full and part-time employees work to teach, counsel, transport, mentor, nourish and coach students in a safe and secure 21st-century learning environment that allows students to excel every day. Through staff collaboration and engagement, as well as competitive salaries and benefits, Forest Hills employees are able to grow professionally, excel in their roles and make a difference in the lives of students.

In 2017, the Cincinnati Enquirer named Forest Hills School District one of the Top 15 Workplaces in the Cincinnati region. The honor is awarded solely on employee feedback from an anonymous seeking insight on several factors that indicate employee satisfaction and company success such as alignment, effectiveness, management, professional development, salary, benefits and engagement.
