Forest Hills School District is focused on supporting student wellness and meeting the social, behavioral and emotional needs of children in our school community. We believe every student can Flourish in the Forest.

We have a multidisciplinary team dedicated to a variety of topics, ranging from mental health and behavioral supports to homelessness and foster care, to engage all students in meaningful, purposeful and challenging learning. FHSD believes learning takes place when students are secure, valued and able to take risks. In order to achieve that goal, we offer support and resources to all students facing non-academic barriers to learning.

Wellness Curriculum

FHSD recently created and adopted a Wellness Course of Study. This educational plan is designed to build the capacity to promote and nurture social, emotional, physical, and intellectual well-being for our school community/learners. Students in Forest Hills will learn how to adopt a more positive outlook, be respectful and responsible communicators, collaborate, set goals, resolve conflicts, be a good friend and be productive citizens.
