The student progression from elementary to middle to high school in Forest Hills is noteworthy. There are six (6) neighborhood elementary schools, all of which feed Nagel Middle School. Nagel students then split between two (2) high schools. Anderson High School gets all students from Ayer, Maddux and Summit elementaries. Turpin gets all students from Wilson and Mercer elementaries. Sherwood Elementary students are split between Anderson and Turpin, depending on street address; students on a few designated "swing" streets may choose either high school. Forest Hills also features open enrollment in which parents / students may choose which school within the distrist they wish to attend, if sufficient capacity exists at the desired school and parents / students provide their own transportation.
Both Ayer and Sherwood Elementary schools have non-traditional open classrooms with no foundation walls separating classes. The use of chalkboards, moveable walls, and other objects form barriers between learning areas.
