Student Leadership & Clubs


Here, she leads

Forest Ridge believes that all girls are leaders. Whether they are leading as ASB President, while playing on the soccer field or organizing a new school club, students learn important leadership skills that will follow them throughout their lives. We encourage every student to lead in some capacity during their time at Forest Ridge, stretching themselves to take an active role in our campus and community.

Ways to Lead

Student Council

High school students can serve as school leaders either as an Associated Student Body (ASB) Student Council Member or as a Sacred Heart Goal Ambassador. These leaders act as the voice of their peers and serve as a liaison between students and faculty.

Sacred Heart Goal Ambassadors

The five Goal Ambassador teams are part of the Student Council and represent the Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria on campus. Each Goal Ambassador team works closely with faculty to plan and implement girl-led activities.

Admission Ambassadors

A team of students trained in public speaking and presentation skills who act as the face of the school during admission events.

Forest Ridge Student Alumnae Association

In the Forest Ridge Student Alumnae Association, students take a leadership role and create a philanthropic culture in support of the school. Students learn about the history of Forest Ridge, meet alumnae, host events, develop fundraising skills and learn about the Alumnae Relations and Development Department.

Link Crew

Link Crew leaders are trained to mentor incoming students as they begin their high school journey. These mentors lead the 9th grade orientation and continue their work throughout the year with their mentees.

Peer Educators

A team of trained students who work with our school mental health counselor as peer-to-peer educators on student wellness initiatives.

Interact

Interact, with over 100 student members, is a popular service club focused on helping the homeless. Interact, offered in partnership with the Bellevue Rotary Club, is a club in which Forest Ridge students work with other high schools in the community to complete special projects. In October 2018, the Forest Ridge club was the only Interact Club in the Puget Sound region to receive the Presidential Award for exemplary service.
