Most kids in Grantville / Allied Gardens area do not attend Foster. They choice out to Marvin, Hearst or Daillard. So, if you are looking in the area, make note. The school itself is average, with test scores on the decline. Although my daughter enjoys her teacher, she does not like the fact that 75% of the kids in her class are from out of area. Therefore, socially, it's impossible to forge friendships outside of recess. The curriculum is like that of all SD unified schools and followed accordingly. Class sizes are small, as they are in most of this area. For a "choiced in" child, Foster is better than the inner city schools. For local kids, there are better academic choices nearby. If you are looking for a close knit community and school, this is not it.

Foster Elementary School is one of those schools that actually cares about children and their lives, in addition to just providing academics. They encourage healthy living, healthy eating, and healthy habits, which will carry your child throughout his/her entire life. Recess is looked upon as a chance to get in shape, and there is ample room for children to run around, play, swing, jump, and just be kids. A decent sized playground provides plenty for every child to do. Academics wise, this school does relatively well, and is even more advanced then some of the other elementary schools in the area. Your child will get all of the state required programs, plus the added benefit of the healthy living environment, in addition to computer knowledge that might not be available at all elementary schools. Their computer lab is probably in the top 5 among elementary schools in the area, and keeps up with the technology in the middle and senior high schools. The teachers are caring, kind, sweet, gentle, and yet strict about keeping students on the right path. The principal is very involved in the day to day running of the school. Parents are encouraged to get involved to eliminate the separation between home and school day to day environments. Above all, this school encourages healthy living, something that is almost non existent in today's society, and so important. It's a great school, whether you are looking for a new school for your student, or your student is starting school for the very first time.

PROS: Advanced technology, huge outdoor play area, caring staff.
CONS: None that I can think of.
