About Us



Hello, and welcome to the Academy and life at Forest View!  Our schools are designed to serve students' unique needs with a focus on post-school success.  Through individualized planning, our teams provide experiences focused on preparing students for their future career, educational, and life-ready needs.  

The Academy at Forest View supports instruction towards high school graduation credits for students needing a smaller setting with supports for social-emotional learning.  As students progress academically and demonstrate growth towards managing their needs, teams plan for classes and extracurricular opportunities within our District 214 comprehensive high schools.  Through career exploration activities, students are encouraged to identify their post-school interests and engage in experiential learning with our community partners.   Our talented team is excited to partner with our district community to provide a highly structured and nurturing learning environment in which students actively grow towards their aspirations.

The District 214 life program at Forest View proudly serves students pursuing transition services beyond their high school graduation requirements.  In recognition of the variety of dreams our students have for their future, our goal is to propel students towards their future career, educational, and life-ready plans.  Learning, Independence, Fulfillment, and Enrichment captures the self-determination approach to providing authentic experiences for our students. Programming includes daily living, communication, personal management, and work based learning.  As students discover their aspirations, our passionate teams empower student success.
