My son attended this school since K-4 and is now entering junior year in high school. The elementary years were great but middle school and high school is a bit of struggle. School changed curriculum during middle school and high school, and the teachers don't actually teach but just "monitor or supervise students" doing their work through PACE program and the IGNITIA online. Students who are not motivated lag behind. The school is not accredited. My son convinced us to get him to an accredited public online school to save money and get an accredited high school diploma. A few subjects may not be credited so he will need to probably delay graduation if he is not able to catch up in two years. I would not consider it average academically but instilling Christian education made it a notch higher...
I'll rate them 'A' on Christian Leadership.As an alumni, my high school diploma was not accepted in a University , I was told that the high school was not accredited, therefore I needed to get my GED... what a disapointment.
I am an alumni of FBCS. First Baptist Church School is a great place but I have to agree the education there is not the best. The rules are not stable either. Some teachers are careless about teaching and gives you free periods when students are supposed to be learning. Students get loose about learning and slack off at school and does not learn anything... The first thing this school needs to do in order to improve is to pick better teachers that actually knows what they are doing. School is a place where you learn. It's not a playground. Students need to learn for their future whether they will be in ministry or not.
My child went to this school and was not prepared to enter higher education. Although I understand that the purpose of the school is to train kids to go into the ministry, I do think that the kids should also be successful members of the working community.
I go to this church and I enrolled my child to its K-4 and K-5 Kindergarten program. My child will be 6 years old in June, trained to write in cursive, read and do Math. My child also learned to memorize Bible verses. I am pleased with his academic development as well as training with emphasis on Biblical principles. My husband and I are planning to enroll him at this school until high school.
My children went to this School, some of them are still there. Elementary level seem to be fair (Grades 1-3). Upper grades are not, especially Junior and Senior High. Their curriculum is too easy specifically in Math and English for college bound student. Math seem to be deficient for College or University. Writing skills is not empressive even for UC system college admission requirements. Students are not even encourage to take SAT or advised on scholarship grants that are available.School is not accredited. In fairness to the School I'll rate them 'A' on Christian Leadership. Suggestion, 'hire credentialed Teachers'.
