Forsyth School

Forsyth School is a leading independent, co-educational elementary school for children age 2 through Grade 6. Located across the street from Washington University and Forest Park in the Wydown-Forsyth Historic District, Forsyth provides an unforgettable experience on a one-of-a-kind campus with classrooms in six re-purposed, historic homes.

Forsyth is a place where personal best counts—in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, and on the high ropes course in the Adventure Center. Students are encouraged to stretch beyond their comfort zones with memory mapping, ballroom dancing, arthropod studies, Shakespeare performances, and more. The challenging and engaging curriculum fosters independence and prepares students to thrive in secondary school and beyond.
