Welcome to

Forest View Elementary

PreK-3 - Come Grow with Us


The vision of Forest View is to create a nurturing environment that supports the unique learning needs of the PreK-3rd grade child. We help young children to understand themselves better and discover the world around them by integrating foundational academic skills within the context of environmental education.

Forest View is Going Back to Our Roots

Forest View School has partnered with community organizations to bring learning back outside to nature and bring nature inside the classroom.  With the help of the State of Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources, our children will be extending their learning to such settings as our own backyard, nature centers, zoos, museums, and parks.  

We will continue to provide our children with excellent instruction in core areas like math and literacy by creating a multi-sensory, interactive and enriched learning environment. Our environmental education emphasis will transform our children into stewards for the environment. This will help them develop an excitement about school and a growing curiosity about the world around them.

  • Engage in scientific inquiry
