At Fusion, learning isn’t confined to a classroom and creative expression is a big part of what makes us tick. Check out some of our students’ amazing projects – and see, hear and feel the Fusion vibe!
I have to share – Catelyn is so much more confident with math this year, and I believe last summer at Fusion made the difference!

You guys rock! Sean is enjoying going to school for the first time in his life. He has matured so much with all of you and shares new perspectives with us every day. We are so happy he has this wonderful opportunity at Fusion Palo Alto and thank all of you for your hard work and dedication. It means the world to our family!

Most parents send their children to school every day thinking and worrying about how they will be treated by their teachers. What Fusion teachers do for my child is take that worry away every day! They aren’t just good teachers because many schools have good teachers. They are people who genuinely show love and respect and care to my child every day. I hope the Fusion teachers know how much they help him every day, they are making a difference in his life for the better. I wish they could be paid a fortune because they deserve it!

I have worked in education for 25 years and I have never met a group of teachers more willing to put children first. Theo has blossomed into a young man I only dreamed I might some day meet.
You are all helping him heal and that is allowing my whole family to heal.
Thank you for all that you do every day. From the bottom of my heart. 🙂

One of your teachers Tom McGann has a gift. He teaches math, which to many is very dry and boring. This holds true for my son Max. He has not enjoyed Math since 3rd grade.
I enrolled him into Fusion the end of September. Max is a good kid, but does not enjoy or understand math. Obviously I was concerned when he entered Fusion Academy. I knew he could no longer hide from this fear. He had to face it head on, being the only one in the class.
The first day of math comes, I’m already feeling nervous. I asked Max about his day, he responds with all positive feedback. I then go on to ask about the teachers. He actually thinks they are all fantastic. I even asked about his Math teacher. Max’s face lit up. He went on to tell me what an amazing guy he is, how he takes something Max finds so boring and makes it interesting. Mr McGann has the ability to show my son why we actually need certain math in order to be successful at our careers. I am so thrilled that Tom McGann has been able to provide the academic and more importantly the real life piece that most kids never seem to relate to. Thankfully Max truly does, and has Mr. McGann to thank for that. Although Max has only been with Fusion for a short time, the impact these teachers have made, are nothing short of amazing.

He is ecstatic about coming back. He loves Fusion and has made me promise not to move until he is all the way through high school!
Seems like he found the one school (and set of friends) he’s been searching for!

I just wanted to take a brief moment to thank you and the entire team at Fusion for the experience we have had at your school with our son Baxter. NEVER have we had such a powerful, loving, caring incredible educational experience in all his sixteen years! The staff is so compassionate, caring and loving with our guy such that he is excited and enthusiastic about school! What a coup! He has learned so much, excelled so much and grown exponentially in the Fusion environment. Its as the commercial says…., “priceless!”
I love the weekly updates on progress and the ease in which the communication flows between parent and faculty. When he goes astray in any course I know immediately. The teachers are part of my personal team for my son. You have no idea how that feels as a concerned parent. (“Priceless!”)
I have said to you before and I’ll say it again, they say the say the “Happiest Place on Earth” is Disneyland. Who ever said that is not a Fusion parent! Fusion is the happiest place for this mama and we love you all so. Thank you all for loving and teaching my boy with dignity, honor and respect.

We are elated to welcome Fusion Academy Oak Brook to our learning community! So many of our clients will benefit from their unique approach and supportive learning environment. It is so refreshing to meet educators with such verve about what they do. Their excitement is contagious and fills a void in the community for so many of our learners. There is now a place for every square peg trying to fit into a traditional hole!

As a School Psychologist and a Marriage Family Therapist I understand the value Fusion provides each student who enters their doors each day. The amount of attention from a teacher can really excel learning potential and provide the mentoring and guidance students need as they grow. I turned to Fusion when helping a student transition schools. I was so impressed with their concept I continue to refer students and their families as often as I can. Fusion would have been my dream school had it been around when I was younger. I love their concept of one-on-one learning! The staff at Fusion is so professional and knowledgeable and provides excellent community outreach that keeps me very involved as a professional and as a parent.

“Seeing is believing, and I really came to understand and appreciate Fusion yesterday on the tour. Names and faces of many teens I’ve helped in the past leapt into my mind walking the inviting spaces Fusion has created. I thought of many kids who have gotten lost in the vast fortress of our large public schools. And I thought of other students who received specialized attention but not a collaborative education — and who were ultimately pushed through to graduation ill-prepared for the next step. I will be talking (loudly) about Fusion to those parents of teens who, like the teens I have just described, are at their wits’ end and who have seen the love of learning sapped by other, more traditional environments.”

LET'S HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
I want to thank y’all so much for helping me grow as both a student and a person. Y’all have reignited my passion for learning that I had lost due to the fact that I was drowning in school work. Coming to Fusion has reminded me of when I used to love school and I can honestly say I love it once again. Now that I don’t have hours of homework a night, I have the time to be a kid again and have extracurricular activities to fill up my free time. Fusion has made me a happier person and I am so grateful for this school showing me that being different with learning and just in general is okay.
Before I came to Fusion, I was very depressed and school was the main source of my pain. I felt stupid because I couldn’t get good enough grades because I couldn’t do my best with all of the homework at night that would keep me up too late. I was afraid to ask questions in class because I was scared that people would think I was stupid by not understanding right away. School made me feel like I wasn’t smart enough and I dreaded waking up and going to school most days. Fusion Academy isn’t like regular school. It is somewhere where you can feel safe to be who you are and ask questions when you don’t understand because the teachers and students here are ready and willing to help you. This school is a family and I feel like I have made friends for life in my teachers and fellow students.
Now that I am here at Fusion, I am a happy person and I actually can see that I am not stupid like I thought; I am actually quite smart. I am proud of who I am and what Fusion has done to make me the better version of myself that I am today. This school has changed my life drastically for the better and I am always going to remember the help my Fusion Dallas family has given me. Thank y’all because I am so much happier because of the love, care, and tools you’ve given me.

I began taking art classes at fusion as a junior in high school with the lovely teacher Sara Chadwick. I was able to discover hidden abilities and put them to use over the course of the semester. Having a one on one setting in the classroom, I felt my class was personalized so well for me that it was not only easy for me to succeed but easy for me to thoroughly enjoy. Since my first time stepping into fusion, I have felt encouraged by each faculty member to test my strengths and discover new ones.
As I am now a senior, I have never felt more prepared for the college courses ahead of me and confident that I will do well. I am beginning my college career with a major in arts, which is something I would not have imagined two years ago. Fusion helped me recognize that art is not always about being the best artist, but being the artist with the best attitude. I will always be thankful to this school helping me wake up each day for classes eager to learn and excited to start my day.

Previously I was enrolled in a school that robbed me of my individuality. At Fusion the loving and motivational environment spurs me to be optimistic about the future. It provided the security that proceeded in accumulating all that was robbed from me.

Fusion is amazing! People care about me and I am free to be myself. I don’t have to worry about fitting in because I am not labeled. I feel like someone opened the door to my cage and I am set free.
