The Teachers at Foundations are extraordinary! They are committed to the students and learning. The staff is wonderful, very helpful and polite. All of this I would say comes from great leadership from Mr. Hammond and NHA. We could not be happier with the education our children are receiving from Foundations.

The principal, Mr. Hammond, has put together such a great group of teachers and support staff. As a parent in the school a lot, I see how teachers work to meet the needs of all students, at every ability level. The kids are challenged and encouraged every day. Beyond academics, I love the moral focus virtues that are part of the culture of the school.

We started taking our son to school at Foundations as soon as it opened in 2010. We are so happy that we did! I couldn't be happier with the decision to have my (now 3rd grader) switch to Foundations. The entire school sets high standards for the kids and expects the student to follow and live up to them as well. The parent involvement, teacher quality and principal leadership are top notch! I would highly recommend Foundations to anyone who wants their child to be pushed to the best of their ability,

I don't even know where to start! The janitors, front office staff, teachers, principal and parents all work together to make our school fantastic and a place my children love to go. Teachers truly care about our children's success, staying late to tutor, mentor and provide ideas to work on at home. Teachers go above and beyond to provide summer learning activities (art, music, physical education, technology and educational assignments to prohibit summer learning loss). Our principal is by far what motivates teachers, staff and parents be the best we can be to help our children succeed with their education and achieve their own personal goals. Parent involvement is huge at our school! We have a strong fluency program with parents who help our children weekly. The Watchdog program gets Dad's at our school to volunteer their time in the classrooms. We are lucky, thankful and grateful to have Foundations Academy in our district!

I've never come across a school that cares so much about each individual student, from deans, principle, teachers, all the way down to parent volunteers. They all work so hard to push the children to strive to be THEIR best!!

This school was a blessing to our family. The teachers go above and beyond their duty. They attend after school functions to watch their kids in sports and other activities. They take out extra time in the day to problem solve situations to make sure the kids receive the best. Some people might think that some of Mr. Hammond s ideas are old fashioned, and some might think his ideas are innovative. If there is ever a problem the teachers, deans and principal is willing to sit down and discuss it. If people are not willing to state what is wrong then nothing can be solved. My only disappointment in this school is having to move away.

I couldn't ask for a better school and Joe is the best principal I have seen and really cares about the teachers and the children. As for the teachers, hats off to them. They are truly dedicated to teaching and deserve major kudos. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Any child that attends this school I have no doubt will be college bound and very successful in all things. Thank you Foundations!

We love Foundations! I have a kindergartner who loves school and I give credit to his awesome teacher, Mr. Hammond (the principle) and the whole staff. They are so focused on the students and there ability to achieve. They have a moral focus that they talk about every day and a great college focus. I volunteer 3 days a week and feel so welcome and needed to help the school succeed. Foundations is by far the best school in Brighton.

This is a wonderful school. I am still amazed at the progress my son made - he went from reading 18 words a minute at the beginning of 1st grade to grade level by Christmas. The teachers really care about the students and work with all of them to ensure they do their best. I am so glad my children will be able to attend through middle school and I took the chance on a first year school. It is by far the best school in the Brighton area. Thank you Mr. Hammond and your staff for a great school year.

Outstanding teachers and staff. I have never had my kids in a better school! Our kids have grown in every way with the help of Foundations. We feel so lucky to have had Foundations in our community as well because not only do they teach our children in the classroom they also teach our children to give back to the community with food and clothing drives, I love all that you to Foundations!

Amazing school! I am so sad that we will be moving out of state next year. My son was behind when he started this year and he has more than caught up. We will miss our Foundations family.

My students are excelling at this school. Although a first year school, I have already seen excellent results in their academic progress, proven by both their grades and the standardized evaluations which they complete. The staff is involved, knowledgable and happy. I look forward to seeing this school grow!
