Arts


Forest Ridge offers a robust Arts program designed to spark new passions. Students can explore music, visual arts and emerging digital technology. Music is known to support learning in other subjects. All 5th and 6th grade students study music theory, play handbells and learn effective singing and speaking performance skills. Students in 7th and 8th grades can choose to take part in Glee and enjoy several performance and studio arts electives.

From the ceramic studio to our Digital Media Lab filled with cutting-edge technology, we have created a new kind of STEAM playground built for active imaginations.

High school offerings include unique electives such as Design Thinking and Digital Music Technology. Photography, dance and studio arts classes are also offered. Throughout the arts curriculum, students will develop their own artistic voice by embracing the creative process through experimentation, perseverance and refinement.
