Welcome to Northern Trails 5/6 School!


Welcome to Northern Trails 5/6 School located within the Forest Hills School District, one of our Nation’s great public school systems!  It’s our pleasure to welcome you to our school, home of the Huskies!

At Trails, interdisciplinary teams of teachers provide students with the academic and social/emotional supports they need. Students begin their day in homeblock to get organized, make a connection, and review their schedule for the day. These small teams teach the core subjects and teachers will group and re-group their students to differentiate lessons. While in encore classes, students mix with another team of students to get to know their grade level classmates.  Our encore classes include world language (Spanish or Mandarin Chinese), technology, art, physical education, fifth grade general music, and sixth grade band, orchestra, or choir.

2015-2016 School Calendar Updated

September 15, 2015 @ 12:54 pmPosted in: District News, News

The 2015-2016 school calendar for Forest Hills Public Schools has changed to reflect a recent announcement made by the Michigan Department of Education. Although the change directly impacts our high school students, we wanted all of our families to know of the change and to make sure families have the most accurate copy of the school calendar. No longer is April 12, 2016, a state test day only for 11th-grade students. It is now a state test day for 9th- and 10th-grade students. April 12, 2016, is a full day for all students in all grades except 12th-grade. On this day, the SAT will be given to 11th-graders, and the PSAT will be given to 9th- and 10th-graders.  If you have any questions, please contact your school.  For an updated school calendar, click here.
