Helping Students Succeed in School and Life
As WB Yeats once said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”Learning leads to lifelong transformation in every student. The Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation provides a match that ignites a passion for learning, leading to success both in school and in life.
In today’s shrinking world, it’s not enough to churn out students who can recite facts. Success is about molding and shaping students who can analyze, engage, create, and adapt. Students who receive the benefit of a kaleidoscopic education are better equipped to succeed in a world that looks very different than it did just one generation ago.
The cuts in state funding don’t even provide enough money for day-to-day essentials, much less any budget for creative teaching or experimentation. That’s where the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation comes into the picture. Grants from the Foundation give teachers the freedom to provide the variety of experiences that position students to succeed in life. These investments pay off every year, as more and more students benefit from them.
We invite you to learn more about our grants; to become part of the Foundation by volunteering for the board; or to give a gift that will enrich the legacy of success in this school district for years to come.
