Principal Cromartie on Wired-In

On this edition of Wired In, we meet Elizabeth Cromartie, principal at Forrest Elementary School. She talks about school accreditation and preparing students for early literacy.


We want to share with all who visit our website and our school that Forrest is truly "The Place to Grow!" We are a fully accredited Title I School on the West side of Hampton. We boast many resources that promote student success. These include a phenomenal faculty with Reading and Math instructional teams, a Family Engagement Specialist, and a B.A.S.E. worker. We truly acknowledge the importance of family and community engagement to student success. Our community partners are a huge contributor to our work toward student growth, both academically and socially.

We look forward to seeing you around the Ranger Den!
