As a previous student who attended this school for six years, along with another sibling who will graduate from there, I am obliged and qualified to give a review of the school. I am not qualified to review up to 6th grade, as I had attended public school until then. However, this gives my review of the high school even more credibility, as I now compare Faith to a public school system. My opinion can be summed up thusly: Faith Baptist is excellent. In detail, thusly: I have expecienced many good and wonderful things while at Faith. The academics are top-notch, the staff is kind and caring, and the main focus upon the Word of God is excellent. This school teaches, nurtures, and develops morals in its students. Its English program is excellent, far outclassing the curriculum that I received whilst in public school--Magnet schools like Lawrence and Welby Way. The school is not perfect, and a bit stict, but nothing is perfect, and the strictness is preferable to the lack of guidelines seen in other places. The academics, though definitely not the best, are still in the top percentage. After all, I am attending UC Davis. Faith is a unique chance for an incredible growth.

As a previous student who attended this school for 10 years, along with other siblings who also graduated from here, I feel obliged and qualified to give a review of this school. If you are looking for an elementary school/early middle school, I would say this is an awesome place to send your kids. On the other hand, once in high school, everything falls apart. Academically, this school LAGS. Their AP courses are taught by highly unqualified people who have little to no knowledge in the topic they teach. Religiously, they often times confused me, personally. Christianity is supposed to be a non judgemental religion, yet my entire time in high school, all I felt was judgement passed from the teachers and administrators; AND I AM A CHRISTIAN MYSELF. Beyond that, they often ridicule others' religions which I consider extremely ignorant. Additionally, this is not the place for minorities, especially African Americans or Blacks. They are incredibly racist, suppressive, & exclusionary. Even with straight A's & superb test scores, the college counselor had the audicity to tell my friend, who was black, that he "should become plumber." Think it over before putting your child through this.

Faith Baptist is an amazing school. My children have attended Faith Baptist since K4 and I could not ask for more from a school. The teachers are caring and truly interested in each child. The curriculum goes beyond just covering the basics. It is ahead of public schools and is presented in a great environment. I would not send my children anywhere else.

Both my kids are presently enrolled and have been attending this school since 4K, they are now 9th graders! Teachers are caring although some can't help but give their own opinions about politics/current events. Academically the curriculum is great & my kids love going to this school! The religion is Bible based but sometimes interpreted in extreme, like Dancing is evil which is not! Other than that, it's a good school for kids to grow in.

Faith Baptist Schools is such a wonderful school. My children are learning so much. Every day they are challenged to do more and I feel they are given great opportunities to grow in both mind and spirit. I feel safe and comforted to know that my children are in the hands of people that truly love and care for my children. Great values are being taught to my children and the teachers have the same desire as me... to see my children to grow to be good people with a desire to do what is right. I am so glad to have found Faith Baptist Schools.

Great teachers. Wonderful curriculum. Well worth the tuition. We are very happy with this school. The quality of the education is amazing we feel like we can't believe the tuition is so reasonable. We have both of our kids at this school and plan to have them attend all the way from kindergarten through high school.

Faith Baptist school is great. My both kids have been attending school since they were 4 years old. We love the school. The school, including teachers and principals, provide first in class christen education and cares deeply for each individual student. The school record of students attending universities after high school is so impressive. We actually met with a collage counselor a school before my kid started 9th grade. Mrs. Packard gave us a plan of action for what needs to be done before graduating from high school to be able to be accepted to top collages. The Principal, Mrs. Stephanie Rasmussen, she is wonderful and caring about the children, especially the ones who require more attentions and are more trouble than the others. Thank you Faith Baptist for all your hard work and care you providing for our children.

I am happy that my child will soon be leaving this school right in the middle of Kindergarten. And we as his parents do not regret this decision. We want our child to enjoy school, and not build FEAR and have ANXIETY problems especially the growing stage our child is in right now. This school has a FACADE of being religious but with how many times I have picked up my child, I have noticed parents gossiped with parents who LOVES to gossip about other teachers and parents who are "NOT IN THEIR GROUP." It was from another parent who gossiped about a teacher who was "demoted." And yes, there are teachers who are LAZY in this school. Instead of helping your child to learn, THEY FAVORED THE CHILDREN IN CLASS who are doing well..AND LEFT THE SLOW LEARNERS BEHIND! This is SAD. School should be fun. And yes, my child's teacher and assistant does not know how to spell my child's name. WHAT A SHAME!

This school is terrible. The administration is more concerned with hiring teachers of their own agenda to manipulate rather than actually hiring good educators. There are a few exceptions to their teachers, but for the most part they are young fresh out of college students who do not know what they are doing and then demand respect. The teachers and everyone in the administration also have a problem with gossiping. Everything to them has to be talked about, no matter how personal. Even the student's lives become something for them to gossip about. They are very judgmental, which is something you would not expect from "Christians," but they love to judge all their students and choose favorites rather than help the troubled ones. They make students who they do not favor feel inferior, and also look for any reason to expel students they do not like. It is not a place of God, but rather a place where the administration and the ministry tries anything necessary to get your money. If they do not favor your kids then they will be mistreated. Again there are a few good teachers, but it is not worth the emotional and psychological damage to your children to send them to this place.

Faith Baptist is the best thing to have ever happened to me. The teachers are my family. Their care goes beyond the classroom. They make sure I always understand. I have been in this school since pre-school, and my public-schooled relatives are amazed at the knowledge I have amassed from my eleven years at Faith Baptist. Classes are fun and enjoyable, yet challenging at the same time. A good Christian environment is presented to me, yet the teachers don't discriminate. Faith Baptist has literally changed the course of my life. I am so thankful for this school.

My daughter attended here for 6 years. I took her out after the Fourth grade since they were spoon feeding the students. The teachers would go over the actual test before the students took the test. Should a student turn in a test without all filled out, they were able to come back during lunch to finish. There is always a bell curve with grades. But every year all students-all 35+ in the classwroom were getting "A's". How is this so??? They were not teaching them to study, they were teaching them to memorize and move on. For the standarized testing. They would spend all week practicing so their scores would be high. For open house-all that work on the walls. A facade. They would have the students do that work the weeks before. Should you want your student to learn, think about it before you enter them here. K4 and K5 were excellent. Then it is all spoon feeding. I was a very disappointed Parent and sad that is took me so long to find out. My daughter was an A+ student there and it took over 6 months to catch up with the school I put her in at 5th grade. She was behind in Science, Social Studies, Critical Thinking, Writing, and even math and English.

My son has been going to school here since the first grade and is now in the 6th. grade, he has exceled in all classes and is on the "A" and "A"/"B" Honor roll for the last four years. The school is a very very family oriented, many events happen at the school. My son has learned very much and if he were to attend a public school he would have to be put in a higher grade just from the level of teaching that he is at. If your child is willing to learn and take advantage of the benefits the school has to offer then they will excell

Our daughter has been attending FBS for 3 years now. We are extremely happy with the progress she's made. The school sets a real high academic and moral standards that are nearly impossible to beat. Our daughter absolutely LOVES going to school, which we find fun, spiritual and stimulating. Faith Baptist school is very well ran, has amazing teachers and an extremely dedicated elementary school principal, who is savvy, open-minded and strongly believes and promotes open communication between parents and staff. We couldn't have wished for a better quality of education! Strongly recommend!!!!

Our over-all experience with the school has been very good. Positives are: very strict enforcement on rules of conduct, good course offerings for a small school, most staff & teachers are helpful and enthusiastic, sports opportunities for a high percentage of the students who wish to participate, and no bias toward race or religion. Negatives: A few teachers have been lacking in teaching their respective subjects, a small number can be very cold in their approach, traffic/parking can get pretty congested (but not intolerable), some of the coaches should be re-evaluated. Much better than public school options in the area, and even if you do not share the Christian faith, your student will be treated exactly the same as any others. The great majority of kids coming out of Faith Baptist are exemplary.

Great elementary school!!!! Our two children have attended Faith since kindergarten. Our oldest is graduating from 6th grade. He is smart, organized, kind, spiritual, and confident. We attribute this to Faith. Our daughter is in 4th grade and is doing well also. The music programs are awesome. The Sturms are truly dedicated to the students. What a foundation our children have received by attending Faith. The teachers are very caring yet strict. They are always available for questions or concerns. I am one of those parents that may have had a question during non-school hours. To my delight, I have always received a response by text, phone call, or even email.

I was really impressed with what I saw in their academic achievement during open house that I moved my children to Faith 3 years ago. It was hard work to try to catch up during our first summer school, but the effort was worth it. My children are doing well in this school and I especially appreciate the fact that they taught the Bible daily, so that the children are well grounded in God's Word. The music program is another 'wow'. Overall the teachers are dedicated and everyone that works at the school truly show that they care about the school, all the way from the school principle to the janitor. What great witness!

I have a child who in currently in Kindergarten @ Faith Baptist and went to Pre-K there. I believe this school is a great place for children to start their school experience. They instill great work habits, morals and help them appreciate the good things in life that do not cost money. As a parent, you are asked to take time out of your day to help your child with the education process and expected to be very hands on. There will be several projects and school activities that are somewhat mandatory -- but always benefical to your child. And there is a candy drive that you are expected to participate in. Be ready for your child to learn a lot about the Christian religion, in a non-threatening way (if you are not Christian). The principles and morals they learn from studying about God and Christ at Faith Baptist helps them in their daily life now christian or not. The after school and before school program is great. And I find myself ordering from their cafeteria sometimes in the morning when I drop off and in the afternoon when I pick up. The people their are lovely and very loving towards the children. The teachers seem to love their jobs.

Being an alumni from this school I believe I can review this school pretty well. The teachers at this school honestly seem more interested in cramming into every aspect instead of teaching. Many of the teachers at this school just constantly gossip, and if any student get's into any trouble then the teachers will all know by the end of the day what has happened. Honestly it is not a very stable learning environment, and the teacher's are very under qualified. Many of the teachers that were there when I went to the school were only a few years older than I was, and it is hard to respect anyone who is only a few years older. Granted there are a handful of good teachers as well. The Math program excels at this school as well as the English department only thanks to Mrs.Chandra Newton Herrera. Honestly anyone's children would be better off at a public school because trying to go to college from such a small school gives you less chances to get into better schools. Most kids from this school end up going to community colleges in the area and then have to transfer out. I would not recommend this school to anyone because the rules get ridiculous and the teachers act very fake and rude.

i went to this school. a lot of parents of the students that i went to school with were not religious.. most of the students in my class did not attend church there.a few of them are athiests now or agnostics. the education is good there. most of the students that i know just blocked out the religion part out of it.i have a child now and most likely will send her there. it is cheaper than other places and i dont want her to attend public school,but i will tell her don't listen to everything they say. its ok to dance and listen to rock music. doesn't make you a sinner or a evil person. at Faith they make it seem your going to hell if you dance or listen to a certain type of music. thats wrong.

I'm surprised by a prior post about the religious doctrine being taught at this school. It IS after all a fundamental Baptist Church. The school, like all church schools is an outreach/ministry of the church and I am surprised that a prospective parent wouldn't be aware of this. It seems that the staff realizes that many students are not of the same faith and teach with respect and sensitivity yet with a heart for sharing Christ. Academics are rigorous and students must be diligent. My children have excelled here.

Don't be fooled by the open house! Practically all science projects done by the parents. School is unrealistic about time management for the children-- if you are into sports-- no time for them here-- no time for anything!!

If you are not a Born Again Christian beware. The school definitely is out to convert, a typical test might include the question 'please talk about the day you were saved and who prayed with you, if you haven't been saved, write a note to your teacher so he could talk to you about the importance of being saved...' Also, way too much pressure on the kids. Projects galore-- which almost all the time require the parent to heavily be involved as its too stressful for the kids. Three to four tests per day, every day. Don't expect to see your kids after school, unless you want them to do poorly. On top of the homework, if they don't finish their class work, that has to get done too-- plus three to four tests they have to study for (usually 4-5 hours of homework.) ALOT of busy work.

Parents, really think about this one. Ask other parents and ask the children if they're happy. My child hates to go to school and the pressure has sent him to the doctor's office on more than one occasion. We finally took him out and are now homeschooling him. Others are leaving this year as well in an exodus. The school is just unrealistic and has no intention of changing. If you want your kids happy-- avoid this one.

My son has attended Faith Baptist for the past 2 years. Their academic program is the best I've seen of any school. They pride themselves in higher expectations of their students, which you don't see much of these days. My son has excelled with this because he's pushed to be better than he expects of himself. The staff and teachers of Faith are supportive and always available. In comparison to many other schools in the county, Faith is by far out performing each and every one. I would keep my son at Faith through 12th grade without worry.

Faith Baptist is a excellent school with high moral values and fundamental bible teaching. Excellent academic curriculum. I have 2 kids enrolled (2nd., and 11th) and I am very happy with the teachers and staff. The school encoarges you to help you kid. You must be involved with your children's studies in order for them to keep up and do well. There are science projects, speeches, book reports, and spelling bees to do beginning with the 1st grade. The teachers seem to care a great deal about the students and appear to be nurturers (even the males). Tuition is relatively cheap compared to other schools in the Valley.

The quality of the academic programs is above level. My son's education compared to many children is above level. Faith has tight rules, however, the kids are busy with extracurricular. Many parents are involved and we want many more. I would give Faith a 100% rating. Many kids from other private schools are attending Faith for their Summer Camp/School program. The teachers are spending extra time to get them caught up. They will be far ahead when they return to their schools.

Faith Baptist is a phenomenal school with a fantastic administration that goes out of its way to address the needs of the students and concerns of the parents. There is a strong sense of community and family at Faith Baptist. Academically, the school is in a class by itself! The 1st graders complete 60 spelling words a week,are multiplying, and writing in cursive...and loving it(which is most important)!We enrolled our child after leaving a Blue Ribbon school where we were paying 3Xs the tuition for 1/3 of the education.Faith Baptist is no more strict than any of the other 'top notch schools'.I have no regrets.My child is happy and thriving in a nurturing learning environment that offers an advanced academic program, a wide array of extracurricular activities, and welcomes parent involvement.

Hi, I had two of my children enrolled in this school several years ago---K through 6th grade. I am not a Baptist. I was impressed especially with The Math Program which provided alot of 'drill materials' for homework. The teachers were well qualified---all of them had their California Credential of course. And, the teachers were 'inspired and dedicated' to really do their best for the children---to 'go the extra mile'; they seemed to consider their job as more than just a way to get a paycheck. They seemed to genuinely care about the children. On the other hand there was some 'religiostity' involved in that the school does not believe in The Theory of Evolution and the children came home asking about 'the fiery lake of hell' once or twice. The above 'deficits', if you consider them as such, were dwarfed by the genuinely caring teachers.

Education pre junior high is good. Although, education is generally more advanced than public school.

Faith is a traditional Christian school which stresses high moral values and fundamental bible teaching in addition to an excellent academic curriculum. There are about 650 students, K-4 thru 12th grade. I have 3 kids enrolled (K-5, 1st, and 5th) since pre-kinder (K-4) and am very happy with what they learn. They learn math, reading, and phonics from the very beginning. They score at least two grade levels higher on state tests at the end of the year. You must be involved with your children's studies in order for them to keep up and do well. There are science projects, speeches, book reports, and spelling bees to do beginning with the 1st grade. The teachers seem to care a great deal about the students and appear to be nurturers (even the males). Tuition is relatively cheap compared to other schools in the Valley. Good value for a great school!

This school has a very good learning foundation for children in K-4 through 2nd grade. In the higher grades, the school goes a little easy on them, but it is still a great school. I was very happy with Faith Baptist. I attended Faith from K-4 through 5th grade. It was a great school.
