Foundation Academy
“My great granddaughter started there at the beginning of her school life. She is now in the fourth grade. If you’re looking for a quality school for your children, or even have the knowledge of children starting their school life, then Foundation Academy is my recommendation. They have great leadership, teachers, and others there working to help the children to learn and grow. Their doors of communication between parents and whoever has the care of the child are always open if a problem starts. The leadership and all involved with the children are there to be sure the child gets a quality education with extra fun activities. So if you’re looking for a quality school, then I truly recommend Foundation Academy.”
