The school is wonderful. Teachers are responsive and keep you informed of what's going on wih yor children. There are several nice after school activities and the culture is open, respectful and welcoming. I really am happy with the staff and school itself.

This school is run like a prison. Kids are not allowed to make any choices or even speak at lunch. My kids are afraid to breath for fear of getting in trouble. I have had 4 kids go here( and 3 of them came from a different school) and each one has said the adults in the building act different when no parents are around. Mostly yelling and intimidating the kids. My first grader says his teacher gets right in kids faces like nose to nose and yells. Not exactly how you handle a kid, unless you work at Forest Vista. I have tried talking to them about some policies, but they just say that is how it is. Enjoy the prison camp. We are out of here.

Forest Vista is a one of kind school in Flower Mound, Texas. Two of my children have gone through all the grade levels, and my youngest is currently enrolled in the third grade. This is a truly outstanding school, with exceptional, caring teachers. I love that this school nurtures creativity and critical thinking all while building a rock solid foundation. The teachers we have had are all excellent communicators, and their love of teaching just beams through and through. Dr. Schott is a wonderful principal, and he truly puts the kids in the building first. The PTA is a wonderful organization, and they do so much for the school including the wonderful programs they sponsor, and events that bring the community together throughout the year. 5th grade mini-society and the yearly carnival are two events our family never misses. I honestly can't say enough great things about this truly exceptional school. I will be sad when my youngest leaves for middle school in two years, because we have built a lifetime of memories at Forest Vista. We've been there awhile and have seen the school go through many changes, and it just manages to get better and better.

You only put in good reviews. I put in a review in April 2013. You didn't post. Principal and Assistant are leaving. This is tragic. School was doing well. Now its October 2013 and the school is like a prison. I don't give it any stars but if you don't give a star you cant post

I have a daughter with dyslexia and the school has done a fantastic job to develop and administer a program that helps her cope with her disability. The program has enabled her to keep pace with all the other kids, and she continues to make good grades. The principal, teachers, and staff are all very caring and dedicated to the kids. What an awesome school!

My daughter attended FVE from K-5. We have always had a great experience there. The teachers are dedicated and go above and beyond for the students. I was most impressed when Dr. Schott came to the school as principal. Every morning he would be outside, rain or shine, opening car doors to make sure the students got safely inside. He is also always in the hall saying hello to students and parents, not behind his desk with the door closed. Now, how many principals do that? My daughter also had an a exceptionally great 5th grade year and made an easy transition to middle school. We continue to enjoy FVE now that my son is there.

From the teachers and staff to the huge amount of volunteers, Forest Vista is full of positive/caring people (some who have been there for many years) who go out of their way for our kiddos and who love what they do.

I had two children attend FVE - and had wonderful experiences! We were involved in everything from LEAP to chime choir - and they thoroughly enjoyed it all! All classroom learning was exceptional. They also have a wonderful PTA and volunteer base.

The students, parents, teachers, and administrators all work together to achieve excellence. The faculty has very little turnover and look forward to coming to work each and every day. The specials teachers are outstanding and develop a love of the arts in every child from kindergarten through fifth grade. Numerous parent volunteers help keep our school running smoothly. Forest Vista is an outstanding place to work and learn!

We moved here two and a half years ago from another state and It was very difficult for my daughter to make the transition. We are very happy with Forest Vista's staff and student body. Both my daughters are doing well.
