I'm sure you hear complaints from time to time, but I wanted you to know that we appreciate Ms. Wells and her hard work.

If you are thinking about enrolling your child into Family Foundations Academy, I would advise you to think about that again.

If you are considering this school I would strongly suggest that you research all your options. Communication is poor and faculty is extremely rude when it comes to serious matters. Your child will not be treated with respect or cared for as you would expect from a school. It is truly about the money ...  Read more

I have seen this school over the past 4 years go from a school trying to provide a great education to their students, to a school who is making good on their promise and delivering an excellent education. Its elementary school could be a model for other schools to follow. Its middle school has become ...  Read more
