Ben and Becky Straub came to Family House Academy from Ridgefield, WA after seeing their neighbors’ son on the school’s website. They were in need of a unique educational community for their son, Will. After visiting the school and favoring the wraparound approach to education, they made the decision to commute from Ridgefield every day. Will’s parents felt that Family House could offer the accountability, rigor and holistic approach to education that Will needed to be successful.
Family House has been a great fit for Will because the school provides an opportunity for parents and teachers to be on the same page regarding the importance of expectations, goals, and consistency in Will’s education. They have found a second family in the FHA community and are impressed with the growth Will has made in his short time at the school. We are elated to have the Straub family at FHA because as our impact grows to Ridgefield and beyond, we look forward to extending our educational values from community to community.
