SFCS met our son where he was academically and socially and moved him along at a pace that was both challenging and achievable. To quote his response to my "Have a good day." gesture as he hopped out of the car one morning, “Every day is a good day at Strong Foundations.”

Strong Foundations Charter School in Pembroke, NH partnered with Utah-based iSchool Campus, which began NH’s first Smart School deployment on January 3, 2012. There are over 200 iPads, one for every student and teacher, and more than a dozen advanced iMac computers.
This is NH’s first Smart School deployment by iSchool. Smart Schools consist of more than putting iPads in every student’s hands. This deployment creates a safe, advanced wireless and networking infrastructure with more band width than most small cities, in one school. iSchool Campus technology makes the world the student’s campus.”
Beth McClure, Principal of SFCS, says, “Our affiliation with iSchool has helped us begin using 1:1 devices years ahead of schedule. We use a blended model of digital and traditional instruction, so students will have the best of both worlds. Our curriculum is one of our hallmarks, and that will stay the same. Teachers receive professional development to help them become skilled at integrating this technology into their lessons.”
