One way we implement our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program to improve student behavior is through praise. Praise is an easy way to provide encouragement and show children you care. When our students display good behaviors, teachers acknowledge their efforts with verbal praise and positive behavior points. This praise is tangibly demonstrated through the award of token reinforcers, classroom prizes, school store rewards, and incentive trips and activities.
These PBIS incentives are highly valued by our students. For example, our students recently earned the privilege to see Avengers: Endgame and have lunch, and more students than ever earned this incentive.
We all have trouble making good choices, but our students’ challenges cause them to struggle more than others. Our students often have difficulty making the right choices inside and outside of school. To encourage and help them grow, The Foundation Schools has developed a school-wide Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) program in our schools […]
During the Redskins-Cowboys game yesterday, The Foundation Schools was awarded a grant to from the Washington Redskins Foundation Loads of Love program to put a laundry facility in the school. The generosity of the Foundation will remove one obstacle for our students, so they can build a road to success! Thank you Washington Redskins!

“I know the people sitting here today and those that support you feel the same way about you. They believe in us. Let's make them proud and give our lives everything that we have to give, because you never know what good things may come out of them.

“Coming to The Foundation Schools gave me the new start I needed and I was ready. Things just seemed to keep getting better. Where I previously had negative school experiences, at The Foundation Schools, I was connecting with people that would eventually change my life and my attitude about my education. With the guidance and support I received, I finally felt that I could have a productive, fruitful future if I kept working and kept the commitment I made to myself to get to this stage. Even though I liked the school, many days my behaviors got the best of me, but the staff saw me through and they did not give up on me, even on my worst days.”
Christina R (graduation remarks)
“I have been going to school more often. The instruction here at The Foundation Schools in Montgomery County (FSMC) is different than the public school that didn't have the right tools. Without FSMC, I would not be going to school.”
“The Foundation Schools in Montgomery County (FSMC) helped me accomplish my goal of graduating high school.”
