Top ten reasons we are excited about the construction at Forest Hill Elementary School

  #1  THIS live feed of the project is totally mesmerizing.  


#2  The foundation is being poured, and more importantly, the project is on schedule according to Chief of Operations Josh Cathey.  



 #3  THIS long and wooded drive into the school.  It feels like a campus, not to mention that the drive can accommodate over 400 cars waiting in a carline.  It just goes and goes.


 #4  Speaking of Forest Hill Irene…the City of Germantown released this information about the road construction project last week.  It looks like the section of Wolf River Boulevard between Germantown Road and Farmington Blvd.  See it on the city's website, here.

 #5  The fine arts wing has beautiful views of a lake and one of the largest white oak trees in Shelby County.

 #6  It’s fun to imagine eating lunch in the cafeteria flooded with natural light that also overlooks this fabulous tree.

 #7  Each classroom features double windows.  The natural light and the views of the wooded campus should inspire some great classroom environments.

 #8  We are excited that this school finally has an official name and that the community was able to participate in naming it.  

 #9  Imagine TWO playgrounds right here in the courtyard.  Then imagine that the preschool classroom has its own door to the playground.

 #10  When this school is opened it can house up to 815 students.  It has also been designed with room to grow (on 38 acres of land it’s situated near one corner). When it opens in 2019, GMSD will bid farewell to its portables at Dogwood and Farmington Elementary School.
