Welcome to Foundation Academy!
Foundation Academy of Mansfield features some of the Best Teaching Practices…
-Explicit phonics instruction, in conjunction with content-rich classic and multi-cultural literature in the morning session of core subjects.
-Math and science taught as discrete subjects, in the morning session, to cultivate skills essential to academic success.
-1 to 3 ratio of computers to students.
-Technology applications, including CD-ROMs and Internet sites are woven into the fabric of the curriculum, instead of segregating technology into a separate once-a-week computer class.
-Our classroom computers and strategic application of technology develop genuine computer literacy and allow students to experience the value of the computer as an integrated learning tool across the curriculum.
-Integrated Paragon program in the afternoon, including social science, literature, philosophy, drama, music, art, science, history, math, geography and character development through the hands-on study of “great ideas” in world culture.
-Foreign language for all students beginning in Kindergarten.
-Cross Curricular education, specifically Paragon and Literacy, is integrated into Physical Education, General Music and Art/Art History.
-Approximately one hour per day more instructional time.
