Forsyth’s four learning models are intentionally scaffolded to prioritize the academic and social-emotional learning needs of students and complement the “Forsyth experience” at every age. The progression of classroom transitions to different teachers optimizes instruction time and maximizes opportunities for collaboration and project-based learning. An organized and well-articulated structure provides stability and predictability for students and families and supports Forsyth’s goal of sustaining a cohesive curriculum continuum across all grade levels.
