Founders Academy Has A Lot To Offer - David G. 

Hello, My name is David G., a Junior here at the Founders Academy Public Charter School. The Founders Academy has a lot to offer the students and in return gives them experiences to remember. The Founders Academy allows students to be leaders inside the classroom. Inside the classroom, teachers allow the kids to have Socratic discussions based off what the students are currently learning in that particular class. In a Socratic discussion, the students lead the discussion while the teacher listens and takes notes on how the discussion went and writes down key points students brought up. The Founders Academy also allows students to take initiative by allowing them to create their own clubs and run them with an advisor to watch them. Some clubs that have been created are ocean club, board game club, debate club, and many more. Allowing students to create their own clubs allows students to lead outside the classroom in addition to leading inside the classroom.  I have had experiences to remember here while at the Founders Academy. Back in the winter of last year, I had the opportunity to testify in support of House Bill 91 which would change General John Stark day from the fourth Monday in April which is when schools have April vacation, to the second Monday in April, which would give the students the opportunity to celebrate the day at school. Another recent opportunity I had was going down to New York City with some other students to appear on Fox and Friends, a television news network that is nationally broadcasted to millions of Americans  to celebrate Constitution Day. The Founders Academy has given myself as well as other students experiences to remember for a lifetime. Thank You.   By: David G. at the Admissions Information Open House on November 6, 2017.
