Welcome to Forest Park Elementary School's official web page.
We have a great 70-member staff and an enthusiastic PTA. We all work together to give our children a great elementary experience. Please feel free to stop by if you would like further information about our school.
We believe Forest Park is a place to dream, believe and achieve! (our school motto). We also believe that all children can have fun, appreciate humor, and expand their creativity. We believe in encouraging academic and aesthetic growth, by using a variety of strategies to address individual needs and learning styles for success. We believe in fostering respect, recognition and caring about others, our environment, and ourselves.
We will provide children with a positive, trusting, safe and supportive environment that develops self-esteem, self-motivation and a sense of responsiblity. We will prepare our students to be life-long learners and capable decision makers. We will strive to provide every opportunity for maximum student achievement, to recognize and to stimulate talents in all students.
Forest Park is an elementary school in the South Colonie School District. There are approximately 300 students in Kindergarten through Grade 4. Once students complete grade 4, they move on to Sand Creek Middle School and then to Colonie Central High School.
