For more than 45 years, The Foundation Schools has been providing innovative programs and support services that address the educational, social and mental health needs of children and adolescents with emotional disabilities and learning challenges. Our vision is that all students experience success.

All of our teachers are certified in special education or their content area.

  • “I highly recommend The Foundation Schools. Talking from experience, we received the best. There was no question that went unanswered by the exceptional staff.”

    Ms. Felecia Taylor

  • “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. Let's give our lives everything that we have to give, because you never know what good things may come out of them.”

    Shakia P (Valedictorian , class of 2015)

  • “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.”

    Luke J.

  • “The Foundation Schools in Montgomery County (FSMC) helped me accomplish my goal of graduating high school.”
