during my jr high years, i was miserable at fcs. the students treated me horible overall are the teachers did nothing to stop it when it was right in front of them. Also, the academics/class choices were unsatisfactory compared to public school. When i went back to public high school, i was behind even taking the hardest honors courses i could take there.
My child was in Ms. Isabel's Pre-K 3 year old (Rm. 5 at Preschool - Fremont Blvd Location) classroom. The aid, Ms. Cherise was excellent too. I have another child at Challenger and I have sent my older children to Montessori, and other private schools such as Merryhill. After comparing all of these schools, FCS is equal to if not better than Challenger in the preschool level. I don't know about the older grades or other teachers, but MS ISABEL is a STAR. She did wonder's for my child who didn't know much when he went to school. Ms Isabel was very warm and provided the right environment for a preschooler. Plus, the school has a good lunch program that is included in the tuition, is safe, and provides potty training. I also think that FCS is the best value for your money in preschools.
this is a great school! my teachers are nice, smart, and care about dicsipline, safety, and what we're learning.
This school provides my child the needed curriculum. Wisdom as applied to education is the best.
i like my school but the tuition is VERY high and for that price i dont think its worth it.
We enrolled our son for Kindergarten last year. He loves his school, loves the teachers, loves his classmates. One big plus for us is the offering of Chinese afterschool program. He also participated in Children's choir. The curriculum is good, and teachers are very much involved in making sure the children are academically aligned. This is a great school and he looks forward to returning for 1st grade.
We have three children that attend FCS. The academics are well above public school and the faculty and staff are very helpful. Teachers work very hard to communicate with parents. They have an outstanding music program K-12.Elementary has a brilliant Music teacher who knows music and kids like the back of her hand.Performances are alway top notch. She's amazing! The Jr. High and High School also have an excellent music teacher. Parental involvement is great and parents are encouraged and welcomed to volunteer. FCS is always looking for ways to improve and forever planning for the future. FCS is an excellent school!
My son has been in the school since Kindergarten. The school has taught him humor, a love and tolerance of any religion, plus academics and physical fitness. The variety of after school activities is a good complement to the academics. The gradual move from a single teacher in the lower grades to multiple teachers in the sixth is a good introduction to junior high school.
Our daughter has attended FCS from K to 2nd. The academic program is good at ensuring the kids learn the core subjects above their grade level while working in themes each year: farm animals, Mexico, African wildlife, space, etc. We rarely observe the principal directly, but to his credit all three years have gone consistently well for our daughter academically and socially. The Christian mission of the school shows in the way all staff interact with the kids. There are lots of school-sponsored and 3rd party extracurricular activities. There are far more than I had, but that's not useful for comparison with other schools today. They have band (from 3rd), Royal Rangers, Mad Science, IES Spanish, extra tutoring, choir (from 4th?) and several sports (from 6th?). I'm sure I omitted some. I worked in a rural-becoming-suburban public school. Parent involvement at FCS is much greater. All events have had lots attend.
I think Fremont Christian school is good for kids with average intellectual ability, but not so good for kids who need more challenging education.
I beleive that the school is a very good place for kids to grow up in a great environment. Some of them going there all of their lives to them its like a second home and/or a family.
This school is great. They teach alphabets and numbers to preschoolers and the environment is secure
My daughter has been going to Fremont Christian Preshcool for a year now. I am very happy with her teachers, their academic program, arts and crafts and music program. The kids are given a chance to prove the leadership qualities. However for both preschool and pre-K they don't have a fixed curriculum. So it depends on how good the teachers are.
I have three children in Fremont Christian School and have been very happy with the school. You can tell by looking at the publicized test scores that they have a quality academic program. They have the strongest Fine Arts program in the area. The High School choir was invited to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York two years ago and the Crystal Cathedral in Southern California last year. Every year there is a big musical production. Last year, it was 'The King and I' which featured a cast of 150 students ranging from K-12. My oldest is a Freshman this year. 95% of the graduates last year went on to college. The CSU eligibility rate was 74% (compared to the state norm of 33%) and the UC eligibility reate was 21% (compared to the state norm of 12.5%). I see a very promising future for my children here.
I have 2 kids at FCS. The fees are indeed sky high when you have more than one child going to this school. However, it's been worth the investment, except that I find my younger child who's in preschool, not learning very much and her homework that she takes home and we return, never gets looked at or acknowledged. For all the effort this little child has put in, at least award a sticker on their homework sheets or something fun to make learning more challenging and rewarding. My elder child is in a very gd class and has a very organised teacher but I find that tests everyday at a lower elem school grade is a bit too much. I end up having to spend 1-2 hrs w her every single night going thru her hmwrk and preparing her for her tests;v time consuming!Stressful too!
FCS is a great Christian School for parent who is looking for a varity of activities. They have field trips for kids to explore. Good teacher and friendly environment.
My child has received a well rounded education at FCS including art, music, computers, PE, bible studies, etc. The teacher spent one-on-one time to get through some difficult issues and was genuinely concerned about our child's success and well being. The other children, and young adults that we interacted with are well mannered and considerate. They have held doors for us, said excuse me, etc. A concern we faced was a lack of security in the Kindergarten area and feeling as though our concerns were listened to, but not dealt with. Overall, FCS offers a good education and we will continue to enroll our child in FCS.
Principal very approachable, helpful and caring. Office staff is helpful and caring as are the teachers. Teachers will usually respond to email questions the same or next day. Excellent performing arts(drama and music) program. Most of the students appear to want to be there with several alumni coming back to coach or teach. The sports program leave a lot to be desired. This is due partly to the small student body which reduces the athlete pool. It's also due in my opinion to a caretaker athletic director who has no imagination or goals on how to improve the athletic program or individual athlete. There are plusses to this as well in that it allows students who have never played a sport prior to high school to participate, whereas as in bigger schools they would not get the chance. Overall the plusses at this school far outweight the very few minuses.
