    "New Foundations Charter School is an all-around exceptional school. Academics is where this school mainly strives in. With beyond qualified teachers, learning is perceived as an easy process at NFCS. The teachers are well qualified to teach their assigned subject(s), there will never be a time a student is confused walking out of class. Additionally, the environment of the school is extremely safe, the principal strongly stresses safety amongst the school. With disciplined students and faculty, no one would feel even the slightest amount of being threatened. In regards of ethnicities, it is a predominantly white-school, but there are percentages of other races attending as well. In conclusion, New Foundations is an impressive charter school, if one is focused on receiving a serious education."

    "My school has given me many opportunities to succeed in my future career. I am able to participate in college classes through partnerships they have with Holy Family. They offer a number of AP classes, one which I have already taken and two which I am currently taking. They offer AP spanish, psychology, biology, chemistry, english, comparative government, U.S. history, World history, and calculus. They offer a few sports and are constantly working on improving and adding new ones since it is still and recently opened school. They have amazing teachers that will offer to help after school hours to make sure everyone understands the material and has and chance to do well. Our counselors worl with us to help us fill out applications for college, internships and job opportunities. They not only offer great help, but we build great connections with our teachers."
