    "New Foundations Charter School was probably one of the best schools that I attended throughout my entire school experience. They had a safe environment which is ALWAYS important when going to school. They had a NO BULLYING policy which they took too heart. They had the most amazing staff and teachers that till this day, am still connected too. I truly do miss it everyday but they will always hold a special place in my heart because they made me the person I am today and I couldn't be more grateful."

    "New Foundations Charter School is one of the best schools in Philadelphia. Many sports and clubs to participate in, summer programs as well. Teachers keep you up to date about the progress of your child. School safety is great. Sometimes I did not agree with certain material, for ex. books that had foul language, or projects that were a little to deep. But I spoke to teachers and different projects were given to child. Also, the high school is a little over crowded my child complained that hallway was very crowded when changing classes. But over all a great school!!!"

    "In my four years of going to New Foundations Charter High School I have grown to love and appreciate this place as a whole. From the start of your freshman year you are already being trained for college to become a valuable person in the work force in the future. The only thing I would adjust about the school is the lack of school spirit."

    "The environment is student oriented, there is no bullying or attempts to skip classes. There is a zero fighting tolerance as well. I would change the segregation between grade levels in some classes as well as lunches."
