Why Foster?

Why Stephen Foster Elementary Charter?

A Community of Learning Starts Here…

Stephen Foster Elementary Charter School is a small, diverse and close knit elementary school,
providing our students ample opportunity for individual attention and personal growth. Our attentive staff, eager students, proactive parents and invested community members truly make our school a forerunner in a Community of Learning!

How We Learn

Flexible, personalized, high-quality instruction based on Common Core State Standards and the
use of proactive, ongoing, systematic assessments to guide instruction and evaluate individual
student progress

Grade-level service projects to enrich classroom instruction. Each grade-level fosters civic
engagement and builds character by participating in projects that address community needs and/or concerns.

Diversity is embraced and promoted by emphasizing and celebrating different cultures, values, and beliefs. Students have the opportunity to learn and reflect upon the value diversity can offer to any group or community through classroom activities, grade-level service projects, field trips, and school wide special events.

Strength-based career exploration Foster staff helps students identify their strengths while
exposing them to a variety of careers that utilize those skills. Students explore different jobs within the community so they have an understanding of the career strands available and the educational requirements.


Whole-child approach to education

Foster seeks to build partnerships with community health organizations so all children can access medical and dental care.

Stephen Foster Elementary Charter School has been recognized as a state PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) School of Distinction for multiple years. Our recognition as a PBIS School of Distinction is a signal that each day, each student is able to learn in a respectful and safe environment.
