We believe that technology is a powerful tool that fuels discovery and innovation.

At Forest Ridge, every student learns how to competently, confidently and ethically use technology to prepare them for a successful future.

Across our technology spaces on campus, you’ll see sparks of creativity. Fifth graders engineer solutions in our Creativity Lab; a seventh grader learns to program a NAO® robot; and a tenth grader discovers a passion for computer science and programs her own adventure game. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) learning prepares our students for a world yet to be imagined.

Three Innovation Studios

Forest Ridge has three unique studio spaces where students experiment, explore and bring our curriculum to life.

The Center Studio

In the Center Studio, students have access to a green screen, video editing stations and video production equipment to allow for collaboration on many forms of digital storytelling.

Digital Media Lab

The Digital Media Lab is a high-tech digital arts space with the tools and space needed for students to product high-quality audio, video and graphic art. Here, students collaborate in small groups to evaluate, iterate and refine their digital work. The resources in this space allow for digital post-production work, high-fidelity rendering and sharing with the greater community.

The Fabrication and Innovation Shop

The Fabrication and Innovation Shop is a girl-centered maker space that provides access to the tools, technology and support necessary for her to bring her inventive ideas to life. Students can quickly put ideas into action and take creative risks with rapid prototyping, tinkering and making.
