Forest Ridge is an excellent school, our older daughter was here for high school and our younger for middle and high school. Our older daughter will graduate from medical school shortly, and our younger was able to land a (I was surprised at how much they pay kids who just graduated) very nice job before she graduated from college. Both went to very good schools in southern California for college, and were accepted into the majority of schools they applied to. I'm not suggesting that their successes are fully due to Forest Ridge, but I do strongly believe in the Sacred Heart values in general have been a strong foundation, and the wise freedom & social justice have been important as well.
I am a mother of two girls at FR middle school. FR provides a supportive and serene environment conducive to learning. The teachers are very aware of each student's needs. The communication between the staff and parent is excellent. The school head is likable and inspiring. There are opportunities to donate money to be sure, but no arm twisting and social pressure to do so. The families are very nice in my experience. Every one of my interactions with teachers and staff over the past 3.5 years has been pleasant and positive. The staff really cares about the students. Some teachers are better than others, but overall the teaching is excellent. One of the best features of the middle school is the math program. There are four or five levels of math class for the grade so that each student is being challenged at the appropriate level. It seems that every girl has friends, even the socially awkward girls. It is unfortunate that so many girls leave the school for high school. I wish my girls would continue on at the school, but they are burned out on the all-girl environment.
I attend forest ridge. The teachers here are rude, and cruel, and don't care for the children. When frustrated they just stare at you when you cry. No support, no respect, this is the reason i'm leaving.
This school is good for different types of kids, some are definitally not meant for it, and some absoloutely love it. Highschool program is way better than middle school. High school teachers are funny, middle school teachers are rude.
Attending Forest Ridge was hands-down the best decision I ever made. As a FR student for all 8 years, I have seen many changes within the school, but always felt respected and valued as a member of the Forest Ridge community. As far as teachers go, you will not find a set of individuals who are more talented, engaging, and passionate about their areas of expertise than you will at this school. The faculty is what makes our school shine as well as what makes the experience worth every penny. Our teachers are not just there to preach a textbook, give a lecture, and assign homework. Rather, they are pillars who are eager to push their students to their fullest potential, all while instilling a deep passion for learning in every student. Do not underestimate the power of all-women's education. I highly recommend this school; you will not regret the decision.
I love Forest Ridge. It is the best school and boosts your self-confidence as a woman. It has great teachers who really care for you.
When I came to Forest Ridge, I was much less comfident then I am now. Forest Ridge is an amazing school and I am very blessed to go there!!!
Forest Ridge is great for everyone. When i first came here i was very shy and through my time here i have gotten a voice. At Forest Ridge i have learned that if i don't believe something is right to speak my voice.
I loved every day of my four years in high school at Forest Ridge! The preparation I recieved for college and life after high school was excellent. Teachers are THE BEST, academics and activities offered are wonderful. GO THERE!
A flawless academic program. Competitive but challenging sports program. Great foriegn language instruction and an excellent art program. Best for children who excel in school; children with learning disorders may be best served elsewhere.

We have 100% college attendance of our graduates. FR has been called a leader in the area of global education and experiences. Please consider visiting this school for your own personal firsthand experience.
I am in 10th grade, she is enrolled in honors classes, extra curricular programs and doing very well. Forest Ridge gives girls the tools they need to succeed, there are no limits to what they will offer, or to what extent they will go for an excellent education. The best choice in the northwest.
We have one daughter entering 9th grade at Forest Ridge. Although our initial choice for enrollment in this school was with the intent for attendance through middle school, it has been refreshing to watch our daughter achieve her potential in all areas; intellectually, artistically, socially and spiritually. In making the choice for where to attend high school, she didn't want to settle for anything less. Forest Ridge is academically excellent & so much more. For girls that have the ambition & drive to be the leaders of tomorrow, this school is a vibrant, supportive environment where they can develop the skills that they need to succeed. The staff could not be more committed to developing their understanding of each girls distinct interests & needs as they encourage and support each girls efforts towards growth and development. This school is an excellent choice where a student can achieve her potential.
