Mission Statement:The Forum School provides youngsters with a developmentally stimulating educational experience while addressing the behavioral obstacles that interfere with progress. The setting closely resembles a natural school environment so that students will learn how to function in such a context; the goal is to return children to their own public schools whenever possible.
