About Foundation Academy Primary

Primary School is about learning academically and socially, and communicating effectively with others is an important, ongoing part of our scholars' experience.

Between kindergarten and second grade, classrooms are co-taught by two highly-qualified teachers in order to maximize one-on-one opportunities for growth and modified instruction. From a young age, our Primary students learn that with great efforts come great rewards. We emphasize with our scholars and families that when you work hard, you play hard!

Our state standardized assessment data proves that students progressing from K-2 at Foundation Academy will be equipped with the academic skills needed to exceed grade-level expectations.
