"I can't understand my child's homework! How do these teachers expect us to be able to help them with their homework when we have to teach ourselves how to do the work too? No third grader should have to do this...it doesn't even make any sense!"
That phrase is a typical one spoken by the parent of a public school child in the state of New York. Many parents are posting on Facebook, venting to their friends about how frustrating the Common Core is. They're getting plenty of sympathy, and very few answers to their dilemma.
However, when you take a peek at Foundations Christian School in Horseheads, New York, what you find is quite different. You don't see frustrated parents who constantly have to bug the teachers about how to do their kids' homework. You don't see kids who are holding back tears because they just can't make sense out of what they're supposed to be doing. You don't see a negative atmosphere because the teachers can't stand what they're being required to do, either.
Instead, you'll see children who are happy, and who are enjoying school because they get to have a little bit of control over what they do each day. You see kids who are eager to do their work because the one on one instruction they're getting helps them understand it completely. You see kids who are digging into the Bible each day, and who spend a portion of the morning a few days a week to glorify God in worship.
Foundations Christian School is different, and the proof of that is seen in each and every one of our students. Even after a month of school, parents are noticing changes in their children:
It's easy to see how different the education is for kids here at Foundations Christian School. If you'd like more information about our curriculum, or if you have questions about enrolling your child, contact us today. We'd love to talk to you!
