I am a student-- well now I'm a graduate of 2014, I attended FCS for 13 years. It is a wonderful school. The teachers really care for each individual student. Each teacher is called by God to teach with no pay, so if they didn't care; they wouldn't be there. It's a wonderful place to put your kids if you want them to be protected from drug, sex, and violence. It's true, the school doesn't have the accommodations to fairly teach students with special needs. But FCS teaches The Word of God, which needs to be taught more than just one or two days a week in church. And if you think FCS turns you down or looks down on you for your religion-- it's a baptists schools and, they have atheists, Muslims, Catholics, and so many more religions. They teach strait from the KJV Bible, but they do NOT belittle other religions. Everyone is so friendly. It's one big family, and I am proud to say I am apart of it.

Would not Reccomend; they enforce corporal punishment. The School is Very Small; you pretty much have to know the same people to get accepted (be a part if their Click). Non-Denominational are Looked Down upon. You MUST Have References for a 3 year old; (Get Real) ; they will take your $$$ for enrollment fees ; cash your check; $150 non-refundable; knowing that they will not accept your child. They have a System where Debbie will Red Flag your child & then set up another meeting with the Principle whom thinks he knows it all; they will be little your child; tell you that your child is not good enough to be accepted; (Beating around the Bush). Recommend that you enroll your child in a Public School System. They will even stoop as Low as telling a parent their school does not have the Facility for a Child with Special Needs. Thing is my Child is NOT Special Needs; (Discrimination) they make assumptions even though they are not phycicians, They are Very Hypocritical. One day they will come across a Child that is Honestly Autistic & it will be their own child or a close Family member. I bet they would Not Deny them in that school. Matthew 7:1-2

Self-righteousness; Hyptocrites; Very Discriminating; They will "Red Flag" your children if they do not Behave Like the Perfect Angels their kids are; Debbie has No Issues taking your $300 check/ per child for enrollment fees; ($150 Non-Refundable); even though she has No intentions of allowing your children to attend; my Family was Snubbed; Horrible treatment.

Strong Christian emphasis. An ABEKA school. Not your typical expensive parochial school for upper to middle income families. Very affordable BECAUSE OF VOLUNTEERISM OF MOST OF THE STAFF. Over 90% of staff are volunteers. High school lacks AP classes. It is a christian school for average to lower income parents. No frills environment. Not a lot of extracurricular activities offered due to relatively small size of school. There are about 250 kids in K-12. Academic offerings are also limited but adequate for college preparation. Great deal for the money. There are more academically rigorous private schools in the area with more impressive facilities and programs, It was the best deal we found for our budget and the spiritual needs of our kids.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.
