Welcome to the Forest City Community School District!

We're glad you're here! The Forest City Community School District is deeply committed to its mission— To provide each student the opportunity for a 21st century education.

A strong 21st century educational system requires flexibility as we prepare all students for an ever-changing world. 

Our district has six strategic goals focused on curriculum, engaged learners, quality staff, parent and community involvement, infrastructure support and fiscal responsibility. These goals guide our talented team of educators and instill our student-centered culture.    

We pride ourselves in providing an exceptional educational experience and prioritize the “4C’s” —Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Creativity and Communication—which are vital skills needed in today’s workforce.

Forest City is a wonderful community where parents, businesses, community members and the school district work together. For a community our size, we are fortunate to have amazing facilities and many initiatives that enhance student learning. We strive to challenge kids of all abilities to achieve excellence in a wide range of academics, arts, athletics and activities.
