    Forest Heights School

    At Forest Heights, we are committed to encouraging and supporting students as partners in their learning and as active participants in the school community.  We develop learners who realize that their effort is the greatest factor to achieving their goals.  We facilitate this by analyzing student work to determine next steps in learning and to ensure students are receiving the instruction that will lead to their success.  As we make students part of this process by sharing with them the goals of the learning, they become more engaged in the monitoring of their growth.  The students then become key in sharing their growth with their families.  Our purpose is to help them understand themselves as learners so they can use this knowledge to learn, achieve and growth to their full potential.  Through class work, school wide programs, student council and a variety of special events and activities, students have the opportunity to see themselves as active members of our community.  All members of the school community contribute to the safe, caring and welcoming environment of the school.

  • Parent Groups

    Parent Groups

    Our parents make up two groups in the school; Forest Heights School Council and the Friends of Forest Heights Society (FOFH).  The FOFH financially supports school wide activities.  They purchase and supply a Daily Organizer for each student (Gr 1-6).  The Friends of Forest Heights Society runs a casino every 18 months.  With these funds, FOFH supports student field trips, school wide ski day, presentations at assemblies, and a variety of other school functions.  Without the financial support of FOFH, the parents would bear the cost of these events.

Welcome

Forest Heights School

Principal's Message

“Together may we give our children the roots to grow and the wings to fly.”

Welcome to Forest Heights! I am excited to be the principal of this wonderful school, and I look forward to supporting all students on their individual learning journey.

At Forest Heights, our priority is student growth and success. Our school staff is committed to providing a positive, welcoming learning environment that will foster and support student learning. We focus on ensuring that all students feel safe and happy every day by creating an inclusive school community where diversity is valued and relationships are nurtured. Thanks to the generous support of many individuals, students are involved in a variety of special events throughout the year.

We believe that we cannot do this work alone and that student success is a shared responsibility of the school, parents, and our community.  We welcome, encourage and appreciate our parents to play an active role in their children’s education.

Our school team looks forward to working collaboratively with families to provide an excellent educational experience for your children.  You are always welcome to contact us to learn more. 

Yours in partnership,

Nicole Schmidt
