I am a rising junior at East Forsyth and I love the school. I think the academics at the school are great. I could not say enough about some of the teachers. There is a huge array of extracurricular activities at our school. There is a club for just about every interest imaginable and several sports teams. Some of the buildings at the school are old, but they don't look bad and are in good condition. The building that houses the office and guidance was built just a few years ago and is very nice. We have pretty good parent involvement in the school and an active PTSA. I would recommend East Forsyth to anyone. This school has been a great place for me to learn and thrive so far and I am sure it will continue through my next two years.
