Forsythe Middle School is home to 565 mighty Forsythe Vikings.
Opened in 1960, the school is located on the city’s northwest side and is named for Lewis L. Forsythe, principal of Ann Arbor High School from 1917 to 1946.
The school is next door to Wines Elementary and also draws students from Abbot, Bach, Haisley, and Lakewood elementary schools. Most students go on to attend Skyline High School 2.5 miles away on the other side of M-14.
The school’s mission statement is to educate students to become life-long learners who are knowledgeable, respectful, and responsible citizens.
