    "Most teachers in this school are natural teachers and make lessons understandable, however, there's a handful of teachers that just read off the power point provided to them by the textbook. Communication between student and teacher is easy. Teachers often make their students feel comfortable approaching them."

    "My experience at New Foundations Charter High School has been a memorable one. Going to school is like going to my second home for the day because everyone there is one big family. Everyone has fun while learning at the same time. The teachers are engaged with the students to make sure they are on task and not lost. I would chose this school again if I could because of how much fun it is. I absolutely love how close everyone is. Everyone supports one another and the school spirit from the students is remarkable and definitely something admirable."
