Our Vision

Today’s Fresh Start, Inc. (TFSCS) was founded by Dr. Jeanette Grattan Parker. Dr. Clark Parker works collaboratively with Dr. Jeanette in an Advisory capacity. As a team, they have been educating our children in the community for more than 50 years. The mission of TFSCS is to ensure excellence in teaching and learning so that each scholar will participate responsibly in a diverse and changing world preparing them as “lifelong learners.”
Central to the way TFS conducts education are three core values: Focus on instruction, parent, community partnerships, and continuous, ongoing scholastic improvement escalating scholarly achievement! TFSCS’s data driven instruction via our own Tracking and Monitoring Academic Achievement System© (TMAAS: created by Dr. Jeanette) of each scholars weekly assessments, NWEA (NorthWestern Evaluation Association), and Smarter Balance State Mandated testing, we know where to instruct your child in core academic areas. STEAM Program On the horizon is the development of our Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) program
