The Foundations School’s mission is to disrupt educational inequality by successfully teaching all of our students the foundations of learning—curriculum engagement, social emotional well-being, creative practice, reading proficiency, and academic achievement.

We are responsive to students’ learning needs. This foundational approach to teaching and learning transforms students into competent learners for life.

Using creativity and the arts, we help each student to develop their learner’s mentality, their LOVE for the process of learning.”
