What happens after school matters. The students at Forest Ridge build confidence, strength and critical-thinking skills on the field, court and track. They also learn how to be committed and compassionate team players as part of a no-cut program.
Ravens play on 22 teams from eight sports — volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, softball and Ultimate Frisbee. Girls also earn credit for outside activities like ballet, riding lessons and swim team. Forest Ridge takes advantage of the stunning Northwest location, offering outdoor education trips like snowshoeing, hiking and canoeing in the Cascades.
Students here know how to compete. They have won state championships in everything from golf to volleyball, and many of the girls go on to play sports in college. The way the students play is the same way they do everything at Forest Ridge: from the heart.
When girls play sports they learn that they can challenge themselves and they learn the importance of being a part of a team. Her play and her presence impacts everyone around her, and that’s an extension of what girls learn here in the classroom. She can be a competitor but she can also be compassionate.—Annie Koning, Middle School Athletic Coordinator
