    I love this school. The office Staff is awesome and they do a great job of making you feel right at home. The teachers really care about the kids and make sure that they are doing their work on a daily basis. They make sure they are prepared for AIMS and as well provide healthy lunches and breakfast.

    I have two children at this school and my kids love the balance of academics and elective classes. Both my children are straight A students and love their teachers. I love the extra time they help my children with homework.

    Don't waste your time or your child's! The education and performing arts here are horrible! My child would bring their school work they did and I was amazed at all the errors the teacher missed. Like misspelling of the name writing numbers and letters backwards. When I confronted the teacher she would just make up an excuse and told me to correct it at home. The faculty are nice but when you present a problem you have they make excuses. I'm glad I took my child out and put her in a better school.

    was told my children could take the bus no matter where we lived but when it came to school time; "ohh we are full sorry about that". 8 10 rolls around and there are 2 vans sitting out front of the school. Maybe my kids could ride in those vans? Very misleading will look for a new school next year

    Surprised school is NOT rated higher. We went from "9/10' rated school which we disliked to Learning Foundation which we love. Mrs. Chandler (1st/2nd) grade is wonderful. My 2nd grader is challenged by the curriculum and I feel it is a very safe friendly social environment. The teacher and principal REALLY work with kids as individuals.

    I had family that went to this school before my daughter was able to go to school. I knew this was the school for her. When she was of school age I enrolled her. She had gone there threw half of 2nd grade. Then we had to move out of state.... I loved this school. We will be returning to Arizona and she will be returning here. She is excited and so am I.

    I couldn't be happier with the education my daughter has received this year at the Alta Mesa campus. The dedication and patience of the site director and the special education teacher has made such a difference. My daughter has improved a full year and a half in reading in just the last six months. The fact that the staff knows the name of every student in the school pleases me. I feel good about being able to call the school regarding my daughters school work and getting a response so quickly. They are always willing to help. My daughter loves the extra classes that are offered. She is in martial arts ceramics and theatre. I do believe that these kind of classes in addition to the core classes help students become more well rounded people.

    The best school my child ever attended. She is getting Straight A's..she worked hard in the tutoring class to bring up her grades so she could enjoy all electives next year! She wasn't failing she just wants to go to Yale and maintain an A average for High School. This school is helping her to fulfill her dream!

    Supportive and caring staff who LISTEN! My daughter has excelled in this school. Her Kindergarten teacher is a joy to talk to and always has the kids best interest in mind and is always willing to take time out of her day to discuss your child and his/her progress with you. I can't say enough about LFAPA.

    I have two children that attend this school and they absolutley love it. My daughter used to be so shy and she just opened up in the drama class. My son's grades improved greatly. He has gone from a C student to a B+/A student! He excels in math when in his last public school that was the subject he needed the most work on. I am very pleased with this school's curriculum and performing arts program!

    My child has been at this school for 3 years. The administration and teachers are wonderful! My child gets individualized attentionand the help she needs. I have looked at several charter schools and have been extremely happy with everything this school has to offer!

    I am a student at Learning Foundation and the school is really progressing. I can really say that going to this school has been the best thing I have ever done. Out of all my years of being in school I have never achived a g.p.a higher and 3.0. But with the help of the teachers I have almost achived a 4.0.

    This school is still very young and therefore I feel has a hard time with teachers. My children have been going there for a few years. There have been a few good teachers and unfortunatly a few more bad ones that I have known. The school is a great 'family' setting but as a parent you must be involved to further your childs education at this school.

    Learning foundation is AWESOME! All five of my kids love it there. They are very famiy oriented and care for their students. The performing arts are great ) The children love being in plays and performing for the parents. Can't say enough good things about them!

    I would not have my son at any other school. It is a nuturing supportive environment where children are allowed to excel and grow at their own pace.
