Welcome to Forest Hills Central!

Forest Hills Central High School has long been rated as a top performer in the areas of academic excellence, fine arts, and athletics.

Our 1357 students in grades nine through twelve are taught by proven instructors, 80% of whom hold at least a master’s degree. For the second year in a row, based on multiple criteria, Grand Rapids Magazine ranked the Forest Hills Schools as the number one district in Kent County.

Why has our school been so successful?
