Open Quote I have been attending New Foundations Charter School for over 8 years now and can honestly say this is one of the best schools to be at. The teachers want to see you achieve and do their best to help you in any way. Is the school strict? Yes. If your child is getting detentions and such then that is on them for not behaving. It is far from the teacher's fault. The school has a friendly environment and many opportunities for the students, this including academics and extracurricular. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
