The curriculum is challenging and children are encouraged to be the best that they can be as well as always to not give up. Tools for success are taught and various methods of learning are offered.

There is a program built into the cycle to teach students to "Be a Buddy, not a Bully" and each lesson is designed to educate children on how to show compassion, caring and empathy.

Every month, the school gives out a certificate for Honesty, Respect, Fairness etc. to students who are exemplary of these traits to encourage others to do the same.

We have been at this school for the past 3 years and absolutely love it! My daughter is in the dual language program (not mandatory) and is immersed in math, reading/writing and other domains of learning in Spanish every other day. They offer great additional learning activities such as Hudson Valley Seed and Science Club. The performing arts/drama that is incorporated into the class is awesome and helps the children build confidence. The children are very well challenged while in a nurturing environment.

Both of my children attended Fostertown. They have a great program to offer of the children and they encourage them to build their confidence and self esteem. Would recommend this school to anyone thinking about sending their children there.
