Lee Academy can be a pretty miserable place for a kid unless your parents are super loaded and work there.

I wouldn't put my dog in Forrest City School, so, pretty much any school would work....

My child goes to FC. She has plenty of frends white and black and has not had any problems while receiving a good education. Are there problemsin the school? Absolutely, there are problems at every school.

I can only assume that "LeeLee" is a parent of a Lee student. That post speaks for istself and should help the original poster choose where their child should attend if choosing between Lee and Calvary. I know good kids that attend each school though.

I went to both schools and didnt like either. Lee academy is only good if their parents have money and calvary is only good if ur a snob!!! Put um palestine or wynne not the best choice but consider ur choices. Or do like i did and move!!! Forrest city schools r rediculous and everyone knows it!!! They really arent an educational place only a place for kids to go to have a place to stay during the day. When we moved my kids where sooo far behind but luckly the teachers here where great and helped um catch up!!!

If you want your child to be competitive for scholarships then you have to go with a public school. Lee/ Calvary does not offer the higher math courses and many classes are not taught by certified teachers. Forrest City has the best courses offerings and by far has the highest ratio for scholarships earned compared to all surround schools.

If you live in the Forrest City , you cannot attend the other public schools in the region. It is against state law and you child could forfeit state scholarship opportunities if caught in am illegal attendance zone.

Yes. If you want an EACC scholarship, better go to public school.

Yes, EACC, Arkansas State, University of Arkansas and many other excellent institutions across the country. Forrest City continues to send quality students to colleges every year. The FCSD has its problems but the programs and opportunities that a public school can offer surpass anything the private schools around here can offer.

snob at Calvary? All I mainly saw were middle class pple and "red necks". Very few can really afford it. Most looked like they took a loan out just to put their child in school there!

Why would you assume that? Assumptions should also speak for themselves. My child attends Calvary and I attended Calvary growing up. That was only my opinion.... which everyone is entitled to, including yourself.

You do not have a clue. The truth is in the data about graduates from post secondary programs and the scholarships awarded. Period.

Look at the Act regional scores, Pre Ap and Ap enrollment.

I just love people who run their mouths with lies and hate!

Look at the data!

My apologies for assuming "LeeLee" implied your support for Lee Academy.

Now that you cleared that up I hope the original poster still gleams information that would help them choose the best environment for their child. In your original post you said "I wouldn't put my dog in Forrest City School, so, pretty much any school would work...."

I would hope that your time at Calvary would have better prepared you to offer an intellectual response the first time you posted. Rather than take the time to be negative about FC Schools you could have taken a moment to tout your support of Calvary.

In the end I think parents need to decide what's best for their child or children. I don't think they will find those answers here because of people just like you.

NEITHER. It's not the kids fault that both of these schools have problems . It's the school administration's running on POWER TRIPS! Both need to be run better, but Lee has tried, but not much change.( more of a daycare they suck @ math & language ) Calvary excels in both of those categories but ( fails @ history & science + they like to make sure they run a tight rope, no kinks in their rope or your out)
If you have to put a child in school here, maybe just homeschool like most of us, or check with people that homeschool ; some are willing to take on extra children.
But FC NO NO NO.
oh no

My child attended Lee academy. Received several scholarships from several colleges. And by no means,were we rich, or worked at the school. That's where I chose to send my child,was it perfect? No but neither is any school any where anymore. I'd say visit any school you're interested in and decide fore yourself.

What do you mean by it's the administration's fault? Power Trip? I think both schools are excellent, but one is not like the other. Rules at one different rules at the other.
