The Forum School

The Forum School is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian day program for developmentally atypical children through 21 years of age.

The Forum School offers a therapeutic educational environment for children who cannot be accommodated in a public school setting. Psycho-educational and behavioral techniques are utilized along with a structured, developmentally stimulating curriculum appropriate to each student's level. Classes, which are ungraded, are small, with a ratio of at least one adult for every two children.

Teachers, administrators, and consulting staff collaborate with the student's Child Study Team and parents to develop an Individualized Educational Program addressing his/her specific needs.

“It is a fun activity because I get to choose who I get to train. I am interested in dogs.”

Welcome Back!

Dear Parents,
Welcome back! We are very excited for another great year as The Forum School celebrates its 60th Anniversary! While we continue to upgrade our building and the technology available to students, one thing that hasn’t changed is our longstanding dedication to the children we serve. We hope that you will join us in working collaboratively in the best interests of your child in order to help them achieve success to their fullest potential! Please remember to keep an open line of communication and feel free to call with any questions or concerns you may have!

Looking forward to seeing you all at Back to School Night, Thursday, October 2!
All the best,

DOODLE 4 GOOGLE CONTEST


Doodle 4 Google Contest

Seven students entered art work in the Doodle 4 Google contest this year. It is our second year participating in this event. The students did an amazing job with the theme, “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place.” Their beautiful art work is on display in school, so stop by, take a peek, and keep your fingers crossed!

CBI PEER EXPERIENCE

The departmental spent their most recent CBI experience learning how to work well with others. Each homeroom was paired with a younger peer in Alisha, Ariel, Danielle and Doreen’s classes. They were to read a story and complete a related art project. It was a wonderful experience for all the students involved!
