As a parent of two students at FCS for the past 5 years or so, I decided to leave this review after reading the few other poor reviews of the school I found on this site. Personally, I entered my children into this school as a natural skeptic of small private institutions, yet found this school to be greatly attentive to my children's social and academic needs, furthering them to blossom and attain high grades each semester.
On the note of discrimination mentioned by other reviewers, my children's attendance at FCS started with us not knowing anyone there, with us not being affiliated with Mission Blvd Baptist Church in any form, and having the firm basis of being religiously open minded and respectful to others, as we appreciate the same. Since my children's start of attendance and my volunteering here and there at the facility, I have noticed a plethora of diversity in the school body being welcomed and not judged, as every child should be. My children have been invited to numerous activities outside school (birthday parties, etc.), which has encouraged my children's social spectrum to flourish and broaden.
To the other reviewers of this school who rated it poorly, I hope your children found their place as my children and many other long term students have at FCS, where despite not knowing us personally, Debbie welcomed us each morning by name in the hallway; A school that Niche ranks #4 of all private high schools in Arkansas, and where despite being volunteer (amazing!), each teacher is properly educated and accredited.
Thank you, FCS. We hope to be part of your facility for years to come.
