Foundation Academy Charter School – Trenton, NJ
My children have been attending Foundation Academy Charter School since 2012. I chose Foundation Academy because they were supportive of my son’s special needs. We were able to work with his teachers to get him evaluated and develop the appropriate plan for him and he has thrived at Foundation Academy. We learned about Foundation Academy from a friend, we had decided to leave our home and move out of Trenton to find a better school for our children as we were not in a position to consider sending our children to a private school. We heard that Foundation was more structured and that students and teachers there were very dedicated and caring.
We have been very pleased with the education our children have received at Foundation Academy. As a charter school, Foundation Academy has the ability to give students a solid foundation and focus on college preparation. The school retains more Spanish-speaking staff, especially in lower grades, to help ease the transition into the school from Spanish-speaking homes. In addition, the parents at Foundation Academy are active in the school community and parent involvement is welcomed and supported.
