Sciences


Our students engage in authentic, skills-driven, inquiry-based and hands-on learning. The campus is our classroom and science students approach learning from a place of curiosity. Beginning in 5th grade, students develop a strong foundation in the skills of scientific argumentation, inquiry and literacy. Our science curriculum dedicates 80% of class time to laboratory investigations where young scientists can delve into important lessons.
 
High school students can challenge themselves in several levels of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Additionally, elective offerings include Astronomy, Environmental Science and Food Science. The sciences at Forest Ridge graduate young women who can reason critically based on evidence, approach complex problems with confidence and make choices based on a deep respect for our natural world.
