School Reviews

If you have a learning disabled child then this is the school for you. However, if you have a student who is at level or above level then Strong Foundations is not the school for your children. There are so many supports in place for children with IEPs, which is wonderful. However, there are no programs or independent study etc. for students who are ready to move forward. For a school that is supposedly based on literacy, LA is the only class that is not leveled. My children are very bored academically.

I had the opportunity to attend Strong Foundations open house on Feb 12. I was impressed with the friendliness, enthusiasm and the knowledge exhibited by the entire staff. I was amazed by the advanced curriculm being offered. My daughter and I loved it. I filled out an application that day and hope to hear she has been chosen from their lottery this Spring. I have and will continue to highly reccommend Strong Foumdations to friends and family. Sincerely, Sabrina Lee
