Forest Grove School District encompasses approximately 225 square miles and educates about 6,000 children in the communities of Forest Grove, Cornelius, Dilley and Gales Creek. The District is comprised of one high school (grades 9-12), one middle school (grades 7-8), one upper elementary school (grades 5-6), six elementary schools (grades K-4) and one charter school (grades 1-8).
Students in the Forest Grove School District benefit from being taught by teachers with an average of 14 years of experience, a third of whom are bilingual; nearly two thirds of teachers and administrators have earned Master’s degrees and two percent have Doctoral degrees.
In addition to their standard curriculum, the District challenges more than 200 students in the Talented and Gifted (TAG) program, and hundreds of students benefit from a comprehensive Special Education program. Additionally, more than a thousand students participate in the English Language Development (ELD) program.
The Forest Grove High School (FGHS) has been featured as a model high school in the publication Breaking Ranks for advancing and sustaining student achievement at an exceptional level. The high school has also been named a Continuing Success School by the Oregon State Superintendent of Schools, Susan Castillo. This designation, earned for the fifth time, recognizes FGHS for its progress in raising student achievement among minorities and low income students.
