    "I'm sure you hear complaints from time to time, but I wanted you to know that we appreciate Ms. Wells and her hard work. So far, she has made 2014-2015 a great learning experience for my nephew during a difficult transition in his life. I appreciate the quick responses and the time she takes to show how much she cares about her students. She definitely goes above and beyond. I had reservations about FFA in the beginning and thanks to Ms. Wells, I am happy with our decision. Also, your front office staff personnel do a great job. Thanks again."

    "I have had a horrible experience with this school. My son is in kindergarten. He is a very smart and active kid. He came home crying and telling me kids were picking on h I'm and hitting him. When I reported it, they were making excuses saying he hit first. He was suspended off the buss twice for three days because he defended himself. He was placed I n to a behavior modification program without my consent. He began to have stomach aches and diarrhea everyday before school. The classroom size is more than the teachers can handle. The Bus Company That This School Has Contracted With is awful, the bus driver is rude and never of time. The bus driver called my son bad in front of me and my son. I was so distraught and dissatisfied. I am currently trying to get my son out of this school."

    "If you are thinking about enrolling your child into Family Foundations Academy, I would advise you to think about that again. Besides the fact that they are unable to keep good teachers, the children are not treated the best. While my daughter was in 1st grade here, her two front teeth were knocked out by a little boy. I was not notified, however, they did send her teeth home with her. That is just one example of their excellence. When my son was in first grade, he asked his teacher to use the bathroom and was denied because she was in the middle of a lesson plan. As a result, he urinated on himself. They had the nerve to email me and tell me that he urinated on himself, but never told me the cause or reason. I could go on and on about the antics within this school but if you put your child in, you can believe that your child will be next."

    "We were originally very excited to go to FFA with my daughter in K. Throughout the year that excitement turned into dread. My daughter, who is a happy bubbly child started complaining of stomach aches every morning she had to go to school. Now, my child is not perfect however the reports of her behavior from school were awful. Turns out that she was being bullied and she was getting in trouble for sticking up for herself when the teacher would not. She was separated from class activities on several occasions and nothing ever happened to the other child. At one point my daughter told me that she felt like she couldn't go to her teacher for help and that she felt like she was NOT a part of the class. Once the school year ended, the stomach aches ended. Now she is back to her happy self. Needless to say, she will not be attending this school for first grade"

    "My daughter attended this school for one year. It was like she LOST a year and hasn't completely recuperated. She struggles to catch up and we spend a lot of money on tutors. RUN away from this school!"
