About Forman

We’ve gone beyond from the beginning. 

Since our founding in 1930, we’ve been educational pioneers. In the 40s, Dr. Albert Einstein consulted on our early curriculum. In the 80s, TIME called us America’s best school for learning differences. Now, we adapt to every student’s learning profile, collaborating with experts in reading, adolescent executive functioning, and beyond.
