Important Attendance Notification:
FHHS recognizes the importance of attendance to a student’s achievement in school. To that end, all parents and students are being notified that Forest Hills High School will use the following attendance policy going forward:
Students will lose credit in a class when they accrue more than 7 unexcused absences. Students may recover an additional 3 days per class. To be clear, when a student has accrued more than 10 unexcused absences in a class, there will be no option for credit in that course, no matter what their final grade may be.

On Saturday, October, 13th, students from Forest Hills and Monroe High Schools participated in a White Coat Ceremony at Levine College of Health Sciences. In a similar manner as other future healthcare professionals, they were presented with a white lab coat as a symbol of their commitment to professionalism in action. A part of a special mentoring program sponsored by Wingate University School of Pharmacy, the ceremony is only a portion of the commitment made to the evolution from high school to healthcare professional for these students.
Students at Forest Hills High School started their new school year just a little differently this time. Of course, they still went to all their classes, heard their teachers’ expectations, and greeted their friends they hadn’t seen all summer. But they also participated in the first ever FHHS Back to School Rally, a combination of informational and spirit-building activities designed to get every student’s year off on the right foot. That approach lines up with the school’s guiding motto “Each Jacket, Every Day.”
