The Forman School Selecting a Boarding high school for our daughter was one of the most important decisions we have made as a parent. I enthusiastically can state, without any reervation, that sending our daughter to Forman was the single best decision we have made that has totally changed our daughter's life. At Forman, our daughter was engaged by professionals that really "get it" as to how to teach college prep teenagers who have struggled with learning differences. Forman has totally empowered my daughter with self esteem, academic achievement, self-advocacy and personal growth. . The small class size and personal advisors enabled teachers and admisintrators to track students progress so as to not allow any student to "fall through the cracks". Forman has changed our daughter's lfe by preparing her for college and the outside world. We are proud for our daughter's personal acheivments, both academically and as a Prefect, Student ambassador, a member of the theater group and the equestrian team. Our family is grateful for the opportunity provided by Forman. She is on her way to pursue her career goals at college. Foramn is an extraordinary school and we highly recommend it.

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.

Forman was founded in the 1930's to educate students who "learned differently". The school has gone through may transitions, but has remained a school whose mission is to meet the needs of students with learning differences. The faculty are supportive, and work harder by far than teachers in most other schools. Forman has the makings of great school but is not there yet, due in no small part to an inability to identify, hire, and retain progressive, and capable administrators who support both the faculty and the student body. The faculty is excellent, the administration well below average.

We couldn't be happier with Forman. Everything has been a positive experience for our daughter. The administration has been there for our family and the teachers are committed to the children. We were turned down on our first attempt to have our daughter attend the school as a Freshman and after a second review of her by the administration she was accepted and later in her freshman year she was chosen to be an ambassador for prospective parents and students to meet on a tour of the school. The teachers have always been their for our daughter and it hasn't always been easy, however the total commitment by one and all pays huge dividends as she completes her junior year and looks forward to College in 2006, which wasn't the case in 2002.
