On Tuesday, The Foundation School in Largo had a special visit from a former student and valedictorian at his 8th grade graduation. Tahrique spoke to three classes in the middle school and students from the high school. He shared his struggles, challenges, and successes while at The Foundation School, in foster care, at Bowie High School, in college at Cal State, and in the workforce. Tahrique had great advice for the students: "Strive high and always do your best. Don't let anyone or anything pull you down."
Tahrique has been a chef on a cruise ship in Oregon for the past year and is headed to Colorado to be a chef at a ski resort. He is combining his love for cooking with his love of travelling and living in new places. The Foundation Schools is so proud of Tahrique! ... See MoreSee Less

“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.”
