My daughter LOVES Faith Christian School! She has been a part of the Faith family since Kindergarten and feels completely at home there. She has been given not only a strong academic foundation, but a strong spiritual foundation that has helped her grow in character and understanding of God's word. The teachers and administrators work tirelessly to provide the most well-rounded education possible and they deeply care about the students. My daughter can be a handful, but the teachers are patient and compassionate, and know just the right balance of love and discipline. I am amazed at how much she has learned and at the quality of work she is able to produce. The small class sizes allow for her to get the attention she needs, but the whole student body interacts frequently which allows her to make a lot of friends. Tuition is affordable, especially with the Tuition Tax Credit program in Arizona, so everyone has the opportunity to be a part of this exciting program. I cannot speak more highly of the school and would encourage anyone to take a look.

Our son will complete his first year at Faith Christian School this month. He has absolutely loved it and has grown both academically and spiritually through the guidance of his teacher. Next year we plan to send our daughter to Faith as well. With multiple developmental delays and a high risk for ADHD, she qualifies for special education in the public school. But with the small class sizes at Faith combined with their special education instruction and Christ-centered teaching, we feel she will be better served and have more success at this school. We are truly blessed to be part of the Faith Christian School family.

Our daughter just completed her first year at Faith Christian. The teachers were encouraging and great to work with. She has some learning disabilities and had wonderful attention and help from the special needs teacher. We love the interaction between all of the staff and students. FCS has been a blessing to our family.

Our children have been at Faith for 4 years and we have been very satisfied at the level of education as well as the great love the teachers have for the kids. It is a wonderful place.

My sons have attended at Faith Christian for the past 7 years and we can't stop thanking God for the wonderful teachers and staff he's brought into their lives. Faith strives to train up our children to become godlly men and women. We are so excited about the new campus and what God is doing in the parnership with Christ Church. Praise God from whom all blessing flow!

The students are respectful which is so refreshing. The teachers are earnest about helping their students and are very accomodating with extra help as needed. The administration is professional and kind and efficient. Mr. Buckingham, the headmaster, is wise and seeks what is in the student's best interest, which isn't always the easiest. I found the school board to be fair when dealing with problem students.

I have been going to Faith since January 2008 . I came in in the middle of the school year , And they caught me up immediately with their curriculum . I was nervous about meeting friends but everyone comes up to you . Faith is like my second family everyone is amazing . And you learn about our Savior Jesus Christ .

We have recently moved to the Phoenix AZ (Mesa) area from San Dimas CA and my kids were in a Christian school. We were looking for the same nurturing school environmet especially since we knew how stressful the move was for them. We are fortunate in having found and chosen Faith Christian School. It is small and there are few extra-curriculars but the school is a member of ACSI which accredits Christian schools nationwide. The quality of education is very good, the teachers and staff are professional, courteous and encourage the students to do their best; and it's K-12 so no need to keep on moving schools.

Academically, this school is excellent. The teachers are top-notch, and the education my child received was far superior to public schools.

This is a great small Christian High School. Teachers and Principal are friendly and approachable. Variety of extras are limited to size of school, but what they offer is well done. The school has been around for at least 14 years and the experience shows. They have high Christian values and do a good job of sharing these with the kids. They are moving to an improved campus (Power/Brown Rd.)this coming year. Tuition is fair and lower than any other Christian High School in the East Valley.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
