Mission & Philosophy

The mission of Forsyth School is to provide children with a supportive atmosphere and opportunities for success in order that they may develop self-confidence and a love of learning.


By teaching a challenging and engaging curriculum and instilling good work habits, we guide our students in the cultivation of their intelligence and the development of their interests, abilities and talents.  We model and nurture intellectual curiosity, enthusiasm and persistence with the goal of supporting lifelong learning.  Since knowledge without values is an empty pursuit, we strive to encourage such traits as diligence, honesty,
fairness, kindness, responsibility and self-discipline.

We value and desire to maintain a community rich in racial, ethnic, religious and socio-economic diversity, in which we encompass respect for self and others in a global world. We are committed to environmental sustainability, and believe that an understanding of our world will determine how lightly we live on this planet.  We encourage the active involvement of parents in the life of the School and seek ways to be responsive to changing family patterns. 

At Forsyth School, each student is known and valued and finds joy in learning and belonging.  Our ultimate objective is to provide our students with an exceptional academic foundation and healthy sense of balance so that they can face the challenges of the future.
