Town Vibe Magazine Features Forman

Just in time for the new academic year, Town Vibe Magazine has made some recommendations for students who learn differently in their September/October 2016 issue. Article author Amy Oringel says, “When one size does not fit all, there are many school options.” One such option, she notes, is Forman School. Read what she has to say below: 


In the “never say never” category is boarding school. For many overwhelmed parents this can be an overwhelming concept, but often one that provides the right immersive experience for development. Forman School in Litchfield has all the trappings of a traditional boarding school (classic New England campus? Check. Competitive athletics? Check.), as well as staff and resources in place to address the special issues of its students.

Forman head of school Adam Man says, “If you struggle with learning, it doesn’t stop after class is over. We have people around the clock to help our kids. There’s a trust that develops.” In our over-educated, over-scheduled and over-everythinged part of the country, a shift in expectations may also need to accompany the shift in schooling. But a return to the basics could serve us all well. Pritzker, who helps families navigate the school selection process says, “It’s a nice treat when I have a parent who says, ‘I don’t care where or if my kid goes to college, I just want him to be happy.’”
