  • TTA class learning their rights

    TTA is learning about our rights as citizens and students and what our responsibility is regarding those rights. We all have a right to clean water. Water gets dirty from land and water pollution. Many students here at FHHS get their water from wells and others from a government agency, which cleans the water before we can drink it.

  • Jackets rally to start the year off right

    Students at Forest Hills High School started their new school year just a little differently this time.

That approach lines up with the school’s guiding motto “Each Jacket, Every Day.”
