Forsyth School


Do you know Forsyth School?  Founded in 1961, Forsyth is a leading independent elementary school for 370 children age 3-Grade 6. Located across the street from Washington University and next door to Forest Park, Forsyth has an unforgettable campus with classrooms in 6 repurposed, historic houses. Adaptive reuse at its best.

Forsyth is all about challenge–always with support from great teachers and classmates–and independence. It’s a place where personal best counts–on the field, on the stage, in the classroom, and on the high ropes course in the Forsyth Adventure Center. It’s a place to stretch beyond your comfort zone–memory mapping, Shakespeare plays, Challenge Days. Forsyth teachers value active learning and authentic challenges. Here, children develop critical thinking skills; they learn that if they work hard, they can accomplish difficult and complex projects. Forsyth graduates are well prepared for the most selective secondary schools.

Forsyth. There’s nothing like it.
