    "All the teachers engage their students into learning. Most give discussion based lessons and expect the students to take notes and to mature as the course goes on. The teachers are full of knowledge, including a Chemistry teacher who is an actual Chemist, and many other teachers who have gone back to school and who are still going back to school to further their education. Many of our teachers are certified to teach AP courses. All of the teachers provide time before and after school to help those who are struggling with a better clarification of the subject. The teachers communicate well with the students and they are sure to explain what they expect and to clarify any misunderstandings. The teachers are consistent with grading. Our grades are available on PowerSchool a few days after we completed the assignment. If the assignment was relatively easy, the grades are always available by the next day. Our school has the best teachers and they really deserve to be recognized."

    "The teachers in my school are all helpful, even those who I have never had classes with. Those who I do/did have classes for has even said they do not feel hurt if the student goes and ask another teacher who teaches the field for help. Most of the teacher here may seems harsh and overbearing they are in reality they are only doing it to push ourselves past our limits."

    "Many of the teachers at New Foundation Charter School genuinely care and would go beyond to help compared to other teachers at other school. The teachers here give real life situation examples and ways to solve them without them doing all the work. Every teacher have their own teaching style, some are harsher than others and some are more fun, but in the end the results are usually positive and many of the students they taught happy with their education. Most of our teachers started out as other jobs such as, accountants and chemists then they applied for a teaching position here... so it is fair to say that they have more than a basic knowledge in their field. Overall the teachers here are nice, they care about students, they have extensive knowledge in their field, and would gladly help those in need."

    "There are some teachers that go above and beyond and try to help when students are struggling. There are others who just kind of throw material at you and expect you to get it right away and if you dont then that's on you. I really like the teaching methods of some teachers, others just kind of talk."
