    "I attend this school right now and love it! The teachers and staff r wonderful! Never too mean, always nice and kind. The only thing I noticed r the kindergarten teachers r infraction crazy! I got 6 infractions in kindergarten, but only 1 or 2 every other year since. The waiting list is kinda long but it's worth the wait! I'm in 5th grade and can't wait 2 keep moving up. Also, I'm in the k-8 building but for older kids there is a 9-12 building down the street! Idk the wait time for there, but it has wonderful programs and a beautiful building. GO NFCS AND NFCHS!!! (New Foundations Charter High School)"

    "New Foundations is where my grandson attends. I have seen a marked improvement in his overall academics. I enjoy when I visit the school and I am charmed by the politeness of the students and the pleasant staff. Overall, it is a friendly amostphere. If I were to critique anythingas an improvement, it would be the 7AM arrival for the high school students. I feel it is not safe to travel by public transportation in the wee hours of the morning. I believe moving the start time to 7:30AM is much safer for travel. At least there would be daylight while waiting for the bus."

    "My children attended NFCS until we moved to Berks Co. They still miss it. I also had a child in Catholic School and my experience w/ NFCS was a ton better. I said from the day we moved...There are three things I wish I could have taken w/ me... My mom, my NFCS and my food service. PS...Mr. Paul and his staff are great!"

    "I'm a student here and I got accepted in 5th grade. I thought I wouldn't make friends easily since I'm shy at first but people came up to me after announcement and I've loved it ever since. The curricular is great! I'm in 8th grade and since they have advanced classes, I'm learning to my potential and beyond. I'm learning things my friends in 9th and 10th are learning! And if you don't understand something there's great tutoring programs (I know because my little brother is in it for math and reading) and the teachers will work one on one with you or work with the entire class if there's others in need of help! Only downside to people who want to come is that there's over 1000 people on the waiting list so it's definitely hard to get in but sometimes if someone moves, it'll be a stroke of luck! If you know someone in the school that also increase your chances of getting in! Good luck!!"
