Forest Hills Local School District is a public school district serving the southeastern-most area of Hamilton County, Ohio outside the city of Cincinnati. The district specifically serves approximately 7,600 students from Anderson Township and the village of Newtown.[1] There are 1,008 staff members working for the district.[2]

The district has been rated excellent or excellent with distinction for the 12 consecutive years based on the State Report Card. It consists of nine schools:[3][4][5][6]

Total 7,987 792 (not including the 216 administrative staff)

The student progression from elementary to middle to high school in Forest Hills is noteworthy. There are six neighborhood elementary schools, all of which feed Nagel Middle School. Nagel students then split between two 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.[8]

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.
