We Are All Leaders
At Forest Ridge, students are taught that we are all leaders. Our philosophy of leadership is one of servant leadership: leaders are people who make a difference in their community by sharing their unique gifts and by working with others to solve problems. Leaders see the strengths and potential of people and situations and build on that potential to improve their community. Students at Forest Ridge practice leadership through structured class situations and through experiential leadership opportunities. 5th and 6th grade students participate in a class throughout second semester to practice foundational habits of a leader. Students in 7th and 8th grade build on those lessons through their advisory program and team challenges.
