Much Ado About Common Core
You'd have to be hiding under a rock to miss all of the buzz about the Common Core state tests that are happening in New York this week and next week. Many parents have chosen to opt their children out of these tests, and they have a variety of reasons for doing so.
For some, they don't believe the curriculum is appropriate, and so they are making a political statement by not allowing their children to sit for the exams. Others have watched their children stress over their Common Core math all year long, and they don't want to put them under the pressure by making them take the tests. No matter what the reasons are, if you're a parent who has opted your child out of Common Core tests, you might be wondering if there is another alternative.
Foundations Christian School offers your child a solid, Christian education without a need for concern about Common Core. Many of our students have actually taken state exams and have passed them without a problem. Some have even tested well into the next few grade levels. That's because we have a different approach to education. We provide a Christian atmosphere that strives to be as stress-free as possible. We would love to offer your child the same opportunity our students have had for two years.
