Classes are offered each quarter/season (fall, winter, spring and summer) for preschoolers up to high school students. We stay up on the hottest trends is enrichment education and offer several new, fresh classes each quarter as well as perennial favorites that our young students enjoy. We publish our classes in a printed class catalog, Enjoy Learning, three times a year: fall, winter, and spring/summer. It is mailed to all Forest Hills families and others who sign up on our mailing list. Of course, you can access/register for all of our classes by clicking on the Classes/Events button above.
Community Services instructors are interviewed and evaluated before they can teach classes for us. Instructors must have an educational background, experience, in-depth knowledge and/or skills in the subject area they are teaching. Many are certified classroom teachers. Instructors provide our supervisors and coordinators with a class overview and lesson plans for each class so we can ensure that your child’s class experience meets your expectations and ours.
Classes are taught primarily in Forest Hills Public School facilities located conveniently around the school district. Some classes require specialized equipment or specific installations not within the school district and so these are taught at nearby Grand Rapids businesses, organizations and/or facilities we have partnered with to provide your child with optimal learning experiences! Please see our class location map (under the menu Quick Links above) if you are unsure how to get to one of these offsite locations.
