To encourage and help them grow, The Foundation Schools has developed a school-wide Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) program in our schools […]

“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.”
