My son has been in the school for two years. He has blossomed under the care of the Forum School staff. We are blessed to have him there. So grateful for the progress he has made and look forward to see how much more he will learn.

My twins entered the school in Kindergarden. They have improved in every way imaginable. The teachers are so dedicated and caring I am always moved by their dedication. I always say the best way to judge a school is to see if your child had made progress every year. My children have come such a long way. They can do things now I never thought would come into fruition. Although their is no cure for Autism, the forum school is geared to helping your child do their absolute best to function in society. What is amazing is that they use positive reinforcement, and kindness. I could never thank them enough.

If your child goes to this school, consider them and you very lucky. You can expect progress and growth in a great environment. There is no one perfect school but this one comes as close as you can get.

Once my wife and I found out that our child was Autistic, we prayed for a school like this. Our prayers came true. The administrators, teachers, and Principal are all OUTSTANDING!

My daughter made tremendous progress in this school. The teachers were exceptional, the parental involvement was phenomenal and majority of the experience of day to day was all we could have hoped for and more. We had issues with how they administratively looked at certain things but that was an issue between parent and administration - I do not feel it EVER impacted my child's educational experience. Years later it is remembered with great fondness by both parents and student. I would emphatically recommend this school to anyone.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
