We believe that being a curious, critical and passionate reader encourages life-long learning. Our English department addresses the building blocks of vocabulary and grammar, while developing our students’ point of view and style as writers.


In our integrated curriculum, students examine a variety of literary genres that provide a well-rounded perspective to their studies in other subjects. Students learn through literary analysis, collaborative projects and public speaking. From 5th through 12th grades, students will deepen their skills and awareness. Forest Ridge students graduate as flexible thinkers who know how to communicate from their own, clear voice.
