Forman was a transformative experience for me, both in terms of my education and my personal development. Also, Forman's small size, quaint campus and close-nit community made warming up to a new place and people almost effortless. Before attending Forman, I was a struggling student who hated school because it reminded me how unsuccessful I was at something that my friends found relatively easy. Forman, and more specifically tutor and teachers, showed me that school could be fun and fulfilling. Thanks to my tutor, teachers and friends, I embraced my learning difference, learned strategies to compensate, and fueled my academic strength (math). On the social and extracurricular side of things, Forman's open and supportive community enabled me to flourish where I once felt alienated. I went from being a shy, self-conscious and overweight kid on day one to a outgoing, confident and healthy man at graduation. During my time at Forman, I had the honor of serving as a Job Leader my sophomore year, a Dorm Leader my junior year and All-School President my senior year. I recommend Forman without hesitation, and would be happy to answer any questions from prospective students and parents.
