This school is a charter school in Manchester, NH. Student culture is very good, except for isolated disciplinary issues. There have been problems with the administration. Several school board members who had been valuable members of the school community got frustrated, resigned, and withdrew their children from the school. This school was going in a wonderful direction when it first started in 2014. Math and science scores are now far below average. There are high school seniors who have not completed Algebra 1. This and the adminstration's difficulty in compromising are holding TFA back from success.
The Founders Academy is an excellent school with a great community and an overall great atmosphere. In my four years at the school, I have learned greatly and have faced challenge all along the way while still having time to participate in the school's many clubs. The only thing the school is lacking is sports but you have the ability to play with your local team and be dismissed early to do so.
