    I had an absolutely incredible experience here! Looking back, I didn't realize what an incredible community, family and support system Forman is. In this intimate and personal environment, students are able to explore their interests (and are encouraged to do so!) on the path of ultimately discovering who they are. The daily structure serves as the framework as well as a catalyst for students to discover themselves. Forman truly changed my life, it was a transformational experience.

    A one-of-a-kind school where kids who have struggled with executive function and being students in the past regain their self confidence and self worth. The environment is built to surround kids with support, encouragement and direct instruction in areas including time management, organization, learning issues, and accountability. At Forman the staff builds kids up, all the while holding them accountable to their potential and growth where traditional academic environments tend to punish, consequence and discourage if students struggle. Can't recommend it highly enough as a parent, and my son said he'd write his own review saying only positive things - "Forman is changing my life, mom."
    Graduated in 1987. Best experience in my life and the school saved me. I am highly successful I am confident. Forman taught me how to use my dyslexia to my advantage. Forman taught me to think outside the box and I’ve used my disability to my advantage. I keep in touch with the school annually and I have donated monies to the school since College graduation and I’ve now included Forman in my will.
