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.
