Our daughter's life has changed so much since she has been [at Furtah]. This is only her first year, and she is already reading so much. She never comes home sad like she used to. She still has a long road ahead, but without Furtah, she will not make it. She has no behavior problems. She even loves school now. I always knew with the right schooling she would learn.

I appreciate all the years at the school and all you and Mr. Furtah have and all the others have done for my kids! The joy of a small class is that even the parents get to know so many of the kids and I truly enjoyed hearing about all of them [at the Senior Banquet]! We appreciate it more than you will ever know! Thank you for the wonderful graduation and many wonderful years at Furtah Prep!

Excellent [graduation] ceremony! The common theme I heard from so many graduates is how your school inspires confidence. I am in total agreement!

Three different schools had tried and failed to teach my son to read. In one short year, the Montessori Elementary teacher not only taught him to read (and like it!), but got him up to grade level in math as well. I'm incredibly proud of him, and can't say enough about how impressed I am.
What talent we have at Furtah and what an awesome school to bring out this talent in all these students!

I have seen [my son] blossom in the short time he has been at Furtah. . . . I wish I had made the decision to change schools a long time ago. I can not thank the entire staff enough for the support that has been provided for [us]. I have hope for my son and the quality of life that he will have once he graduates.

As we are coming close to ending a wonderful chapter in our lives, I wanted to thank each of you for all you have done. We have spent many Thanksgivings over the last 11 or 12 years with the FPS family and with [our son] being a senior, it saddens me that this is the last. Little did we know many years ago all the blessings that were in store along the way and I'm so glad I listened to that small still voice inside of me. When Mr. Furtah told me never to let anyone short change [our son], that there was more in him than others might see, that was the platform I stood on to begin changing his life.
From "Educating the Whole Student" to "Inspiring Hope and Changing Lives" you've managed to do it all! And just in case you're too close to notice, from outside looking in, there are so many families for whom you have forever made a difference.

I just wanted to write to let you know what a great group of young men you have on your soccer team. Our boys at Weber played your team yesterday. I saw a very nice group of kids. They never got down, they were always very positive. We saw them celebrating all the small things going on throughout the game. After the game I asked my son about your team, and his comments were"they had the best attitudes of any team I have probably ever played against" ," they were really funny" and "we really liked them". High words of praise from a 15 year old! We look forward to playing you again later in the season.
