Private School for Girls

Here, She Can Lead

The advisory program at Forest Ridge prepares girls to be brave, resilient, global leaders by supporting the development of three essential pillars: wellness, social-emotional intelligence and leadership. These foundational pillars are based in research and woven into every element of the Forest Ridge experience. From the classroom curriculum, to community service, to the playing field—she practices the skills that make her ready to lead.

Our Integrated Curriculum

Forest Ridge is doing all the things educators know they should do but are afraid to do. It isn’t just interdisciplinary, it’s integrating multiple ways of thinking and doing.

Our curriculum empowers girls to explore their interests through integrated classes and hands-on learning.

Community Voices

What I love most about Forest Ridge are the friendships. When I transferred to this school, the girls on campus quickly became my best friends. This school has changed me because of the sense of sisterhood I never had until now. This is the most important part of being at Forest Ridge - the relationships.Olivia w., Class of 2026

My favorite aspect of Forest Ridge is the community. Over these past 3 years, I’ve gained the most amazing friends who truly support each other. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to strengthen relationships across grade levels through fun events and time outside of the classroom. Life on “the Ridge” simply wouldn’t be the same without all of the wonderful people.Violet B., Class of 2019

Girls can be themselves here. We have a very supportive community and that allows students to be who they are. They aren't restricted in any way and that helps promote their ability to try different things and to bring a sense of joy to the community. School should be fun. You should want to be here and you should enjoy your time.  Molly muller, 8th Grade dean middle school humanities teacher

Forest Ridge School is committed to helping keep our students, parents and our community healthy throughout the entire flu season. That's why we have partnered with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to provide a Flu Shot Clinic for our school.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best way to protect you and your family from influenza is to receive a "flu shot" each year. The CDC recommends that EVERYONE, over six months of age, should be vaccinated against the flu.

The Clinic is open to all Forest Ridge School faculty, staff, students and their families (children four years of age and older). Please note students under the age of 17 must have a parent or legal guardian fill out the online registration form on behalf of their child. We only have 150 spaces and registration is a first-come, first-served basis, so register soon. Please register now to ensure you have a spot. I will be opening registration to our students and families next week.

  • All participants, including family members, are required to have filled out a separate online registration form, in their name, in advance of the clinic.
  • Participants will use our online registration link to sign up for 15-minute time slots during clinic hours
  • SVNA can bill directly for nearly all major insurance plans except for Cigna and Provider One - a Medicaid Fee for Service Plan - unless the plan is tied to an Apple Health Plan. The insurance information will be provided by the participant during the online registration process. We recommend that participants bring their insurance cards to the clinic. We must have the member ID number to bill insurances.
