School App

We now have our very own school app for students/parents/partners to keep up to date with all things Forrester. This will allow those who download it the opportunity to enable push notifications to a mobile or tablet device so that everyone can keep up to date with all our news and events. You can download this from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android). Please search for SSA Apps Central. Once you have downloaded it, just search for Forrester High School and that will take you there! You only have to do this once and the app will then take you to Forrester each time you open it.
