Forest Heights Elementary School is located in a quiet residential area on the southside side of Edmonton, just blocks from the North Saskatchewan River Valley and McNally High School.  It serves students from the immediate area; Forest Heights and Terrace Heights.  Many students are bused from various areas in Edmonton to attend our German Bilingual Alternative Program, one of three sites for Edmonton Public Schools.  Die Kleine Kinderschule (DKK), a German playschool, the Forest/Terrace Heights Community League and a YMCA Before & After School Program, are also wonderful partners.  Forest Heights has a history of strong parental and community engagement through volunteerism and an active School Council, with the financial support from the Friends of Forest Heights Society.  Support from the Association for English German Bilingual Education of Edmonton (AEGBEE) is also valued.  Our parent community is cohesive and involved in the daily life of the school.  Our parents support both programs equally, provide resources and make huge contributions by being active in a multitude of school events to enhance student learning and cultural experiences.
