Forsyth School's challenging and engaging curriculum fosters independence and prepares students to thrive in secondary school and beyond.
Assessment and secondary school placement are important gauges of the effectiveness of Forsyth's curriculum and teaching. Forsyth uses Educational Records Bureau (ERB) standardized testing for Grades 2–6. These results provide a basis for benchmark comparison against ourselves from year to year AND against other independent school groups. We take great pride in our ability to provide innovative programs AND maintain high academic standards. Forsyth students consistently score significantly above the national average for ERB testing.
Approximately 25% of Forsyth graduates receive National Merit recognition and other awards including:
The Independent School Advantage from the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)
