Garrison Forest empowers students to realize their full potential and live lives of purpose.

Garrison Forest School


Every student from Kindergarten through 12th Grade and all faculty and staff are “sorted” into one of two spirit teams: The Light Blues or the Dark Blues. Known by the students as Lights and Darks,” these teams compete in fun, very friendly competitions throughout the year to earn spirit points for their team. At Commencement each June, that year’s winning team is announced.

On Sprit Days, we dress up in decorated tunics and wear the color of our spirit team! Why Light Blue and Dark Blue? Blue was the favorite color of our school’s founder, Mary Moncrieffe Livingston.
