  • I went to Foundry for summer school and my senior year. I graduated class of 2005. I love this school and everything about it. It made a huge change in my life and I would recommend this school to any parent who has a child having trouble!!

  • My son started going to th Foundry about three years ago, at first it was a challenge, my son had been through a lot of things in his life and was having a very hard time in regular school. Some of these things were of his own doing and part of them were because of other individuals, he was not very receptive to the idea of going to a school like the Foundry where the rules are very straight forward and the staff really meant business. After a long and sometimes difficult few years my son has totally turned his life around and has become such an amazing young man, the kind of child we all knew he always was but didn't really know it himself. The faculty at the Foundry are all very caring and committed people and do genuinely care about all of the students that come into there school. If it weren't for all of them and the one on one support my son and myself as a parent received from them my son may not be on such a positive path as the one that he is on today. It has not always been easy but they never gave up on my son and showed him that they cared and that no matter what the past has dealt you that you can do and be anything you want in your life as long as you are willing to do the work to achieve your dreams. My son is currently a Senior on his way to graduating, has passed both of his high school exiting exams, and participating in the CCOC program that they offer. So to all that have cared and helped us so much at the school, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope that this program will continue for years to come and that every student that goes there comes out with the same positive attitude about themselves, because no matter what every child deserves the chance to live a happy and successful life, regardless of the mistakes that they have made in the past. God Bless everyone that has believed in and helped guide not only my son but all of the other students at the Foundry they are in a class all of there own and show that there are teachers, counselors, secretaries, and any other people out there that really care about helping those kids that may have in other circumstances been forgotten or left behind. I will never forget and never be able to express how much they all mean to us. So thank you to all of the staff and for caring the way you all do.
