My son adores the teachers and students here. He skips on his way down the hall everyday on his way out. He loves learning. He retains what he learns and shares his day with me. I am happy with my choice to take him out of his previous school. He is coming out of his shell and making life-long friends.
This was a great school when it opened. However, administration has changed focus and turned it into a school primarily for children with learning disabilities. However, administration refuses to admit this and continues to "market" the school as a place for students of all abilities. However, typical kids and above are often bored or overlooked while attention is placed on those with special needs. It has also become a dumping ground for kids with behavioral problems. The middle school teachers are fantastic but in general administration can't keep teachers because they don't support their staff. It's a shame. It was such a wonderful school years ago.
My children both attend Strong Foundations. My youngest son started in kindergarten and is now in 2nd grade. My oldest son got accepted halfway through 3rd grade. A perfect balance of learning through play and academics.
I actually am a student that attended the school and can say that it was the worst academic experience of my life. Between rude, mean, and downright horrid faculty, incomplete facilities, the serving of moldy food on one occasion at lunch, and a bad curriculum, I can say that it is a bad idea to send any student to this school.
We can't say enough good things about Strong Foundations Charter Schools teachers, staff, curriculum, and parent evolvement!! They are truly amazing! We have been looking for a school like this for years for our bright but LD child. In other schools, he was shuffled through the system, never coming close to his potential. At SF they truly care about each child as an individual. Teachers there recognize students learning style so that they enjoy learning. They also build their self confidence, making them want to succeed at school. Strong Foundations Charter School is what all (Public and Private) schools should strive to emulate, in a time where so many children, are falling through the cracks. It is very evident that they enjoy what they do. The benefits and rewards of having happy, well educated children are what they are all about!
