About Us

Welcome to the Forest Acres family this year! Forest Acres Elementary is an excellent school with an outstanding reputation for high academic achievement as well as outstanding students, parents, teachers and support staff.  We look forward to continuing this culture of excellence as we plan for an exciting 2019-2020 school year. 

Our theme this year is "Camp FAE: Where Leaders are Made” 

Our guiding quote for the year comes from renowned football coach Vince Lombardi: "Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile." 

 In alignment with our school's mission of "challenging ALL students," we choose to focus on developing the needs of the whole child, including their character and social skills they will need to be successful adults and the future leaders of this world. As this year's theme suggests, our focus this year will be to continue growing leadership skills in our students with intentionality and purpose. Our parents and community are essential partners in this mission, and we hope you will look at our volunteer opportunities and contact us if you would like to get involved.

At Forest Acres Elementary, we believe that all students are capable of learning and achieving at high levels, and we pledge to do whatever it takes to help them get there. We understand that a positive relationship with each student is the foundation to success. Because we believe in each child's potential, we pledge to hold all students to high expectations for both academic and nonacademic learning while developing their hearts to be the best they can possibly be!
