    "I am very happy with the balanced education my first grader is getting. In addition to his regular studies, he gets extra science, art, and P.E. instruction. I was worried he wouldn't be able to make friends because he didn't have many preschool friends, but to my relief, he has made many good friends. I was also worried he would be bored in class but he is enjoying his studies and is continuously challenged."

    "Foster Elementary has been under-performing for years. Their focus seems to be more on the budget than the children. I've seen nothing compelling, new or innovative to keep the attention and curiosity of the students. Many of the teachers have been there for awhile and their practices are dated and they are set in their ways. In the student handbook candy is discouraged, but if you turn in your free/reduced lunch form on time you get a piece of candy...that's bullying and they can't even see it! My son was upset because I refused to fill out that info. I'm just glad it's his last year there. Good luck if your child is headed there, don't expect him/her to get any smarter."

    "I like this school. It doesn't look special when you drive by on Zion Ave., but when you turn the corner you see a large grass lawn, trees, fresh paint, and the campus is clean and peaceful. The kindergarden playground is separate and sweet. Don't expect to see many LV bags or designer jeans. The community here is casual and low key. There are many excellent teachers that LOVE their job and make a difference in your child's enthusiasm for learning. There are a couple that just stick to the basics of teaching. The main problem with this school is lack of parental involvement. There lacks a sense of pride here. What Foster needs is parents to care, get involved and kick butt!! Revamp Fosters reputation!"

    "My kid loves this school her teachers is very good, they have science lab weekly for the kindergarten, when my kid jump from bed at 6 am to go to school this means she is happy to attend this school and as a mother I see this is the key which will help her to be successful academically too."
