Forest Hill Trendsetters
Teen Trendsetters™ reading mentors is an intensive reading program for 1st and 2nd graders (mentees) reading half a year or more behind their grade level. Students who enter the program sign a contract with their parents to read to them at least twice a week. Mentees are assigned a teen mentor who meets with them weekly, working together to improve reading. Mentees also receive a home library throughout the school year.
Forest Hill trendsetters have been implemented since 2016 and consist of 20 to 25 sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Forest Hill program sites are Timberlawn and Oak Forest Elementary.
