Welcome to Forestwood Middle School Web - home of the Falcons!
Forestwood Middle School is a 6th – 8th grade school in the Lewisville Independent School District, feeding into Flower Mound High School. Our feeder schools include all students from Forest Vista, Donald and Garden Ridge Elementary Schools. We are very proud of our well-established tradition of excellence beginning in 1992 when our school first opened. Forestwood has consistently been rated an Exemplary, Recognized or Met Standard school by the Texas Education Agency.
Forestwood currently houses 920 students, sixty classrooms, eighty staff members, one technology education lab, six science labs, and a very up-to-date and well-stocked library. We are proud to be an LISD 1:X campus which allows each of our students to carry their own personal iPad; all of our classrooms contain the latest laptop computers for student use and our Library has the most current Apple technology. Our grade-level teams include all core academic area instructors supplemented by Special Education and ESL programs, and they are enhanced by a full range of elective offerings. Forestwood students have the opportunity to enroll in two electives in addition to the core courses, English language arts, math, science, social studies and physical education. Electives include band, choir, orchestra, art, theatre arts, family and consumer science, technology education, outdoor trails and Spanish.
To support the academic success of our students, we offer a variety of opportunities to address academic issues and concerns through our thirty minute Advisory program during the mid-afternoon of each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the Homework Haven program meeting daily from 4:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Of course subject area teachers offer individual opportunities for support as needed. There are a full range of extracurricular programs including Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, FCA, Academic UIL, Book Club and many more. Our athletic program offers football, volleyball, basketball, track, soccer, tennis, swimming, and cross county.
We welcome you to our school at any time to experience the Falcon Pride at Forestwood Middle School as we continue to make our educational mark on the Lewisville ISD community.
