About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See New Foundations Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

New Foundations Charter School Reviews
This is the first year the school expanded to K-12. The school expects a lot from the students and also the parents. The curriculum is very advance compared to public schools. I've attended public school and though my experience, I can compare. You must have a willingness to want better and this school does it. This is a perfect fit for my son and I feel very fortunate to have him attend.
I think it is a Wonderful school to go to and anyone would be lucky to go there.
