This school has been an amazing blessing to my son. He never liked school until he started attending Furtah. This will be his 3rd year at Furtah. My son went from averaging a "C" in just about every class to averaging a "A" in just about every class. Thank you for all you have done to improve my son's educational experience.

My oldest attended FPS from kindergarden through his graduation in 2015, and my youngest currently attends as a 6th grader. Both of my sons had reading challenges, and they have both flourished at this school - the classes are inclusive, but students are also given one-on-one instruction - Mr. Furtah himself teaches reading enrichment classes. In the last few years, our family has also become involved in the international student program, and have hosted students from all over the world, including China, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Germany - the experiences they have here are incredible. If you are looking for a diverse school population, you would be hard-pressed to find one more so than Furtah. Every school has challenges and no school is a perfect fit for every student, but because FPS is a small school, each student really can receive attention and support. If your child is struggling in a large school setting, then I would highly suggest giving FPS your consideration.

Any parent who loses sleep because their child isn't fitting in public school needs to consider Furtah Prep, especially if their child has ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, high-functioning Autism, Dyslexia or some other learning difference. Furtah recognizes that these students have a learning difference not a learning disability. If a student is acting out at home or socially, becomes withdrawn, fights too frequently with siblings, has poor self-esteem or low feelings of self-worth, they could have a reading difficulty that can be corrected at Furtah Prep. You should check out this school.
