This school has come a long way but still needs work. Some of the teachers are outrageous with their teaching styles. They need to be teaching at some college not an elementary, middle school. The Principal is very weak. He does not take control and do his job properly. teachers and staff members do any and everything they want and dont suffer the consequences behind their outrageous actions. The academics are good but they need to learn how to treat PAYING customers better. They actually need to get rid of some of those idiots they call teachers and get new ones who are Christians and professionals.

My son is a currently a middle student at FKCP. And I will say that FKCP is a good school. children are reasonably challenged along with a strong curriculum. Parent's unyielding participation is strongly warranted by the school, but this can be a bit overwhelming for single parents who have be diligent with keeping their job so they can pay the tuitiion. Overall, I admire how the teachers enourage and teach students how to apply their very best. They have a great source for keeping parents updated on students progress which they are very committed to.

My three children are enrolled at FKCP. The oldest for more than 6 years. I have found it to be excellent in the area of teacher communication, curriculum and programs. FKCP is also the safest, most peaceful environment and its small so families can connect and students can get the attention they need in the classroom. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great school for their child, K- 12th or for preschool for your infants & toddlers.

My child has been at Price since 8th grade and have already experienced three Principals. Personally I think the newly appointed Principal is on target and a good fit. The difference in my child's education has been the high school English teacher. She has made a difference in previous and current students. Once your child enters her class, they never forget it and their lives will never be the same again. The biggest problems we experienced was communication between the administration and parents. However, under the new leadership we have seen tremendous improvement. Also the bias in sports have changed. The focus is no longer just the basketball team; the football team made a positive statement and proved themselves for the 2009-2010 school season. When I drop my child off at school I have a peace of mind. The tuition is reasonable when comparing to other schools. Go PRICE!!

This school has a deep rooted problem with their administration selection. The owner of the school very sincere, but leaves several people to run the school,which more than not is disasterous. It is a Chrisian School operating as a business more so than an Educational Prepatory Institute without consistency.

The Administrator of this pre-school is very combative and unprofessional. She and her staff take out issues they have with parents on their children. I caution anyone signing up for this 'institution.'

There has been a lot of changes this past school year. I do believe for the better. It will benefit, more so, those going into middle school. They have restructured their curriculum. The better years are yet to come. More college prep classes are being added. hopefully, more extracurricular activities. Parental involvement is very apparent.

This is my son's first year at FKCP III School. He is a junior coming from a public high school of over 3,000 students so coming to a school with less than 300 students was an adjustment to say the least. Our son was getting good grades, but we felt there were too many distractions, racial violence as well as less and less teacher, parent interaction. We initially put him in public school because his friends went to public school but we had him on a two year plan initially and it was his (our sons) decision to go to Price. I love the one on one with the Administration and the teachers. I love getting returned e-mails and calls from teachers. Most of all he is in a safe environment for learning. Our son has adjustment well.

There are better schools out there, check out magnet, charters or even other private schools. Do the research, and wake up before it is too late.

The pre-school staff at this school are excellent! They really care about the kids, plus they teach them the word of God in a fun, loving environment.

My daughter has been going to F.K.C.P III since she was one years old. She is now in the 3rd grade I am not satisfied with the direction of the school. Your paying for the loving atmosphere, safety & convenience, definetly not for the education. Every year my daughter gains a new friend but looses 4 friends from the previous year. We will not return next year. I should have saved my money & sent my child to a public school. Why? because my daughter is at the same level as public school kids. They should raise the bar higher for the students & have them meet it. I can go on and on, but I can only type 150 words. It breaks my heart that this beautiful school has the worst faculty. Some of the elementary teachers does not have a clue on how to teach young children.

Not exactly what we were expecting for our children. School defintely needs do clearly define its purpose. Either they should focus on being a ministry outreach arm of the church, or they should focus on being the educational facility that they have the potential to be. Our expectations were defintely not met.

While my child attended the daycare at FKCPIII School, I had the chance to observe the elementaty and high school there. As a requirement for enrollment, you must attend bi-monthly meetings covering the activities of the entire school. During one of the meetings we were introduced to the senior class, and were given the rundown of who was accepted to what colleges. Some of these kids were going to some great schools! I have loved the Administrator, Mrs. Baden, from the beginning, and all of my infants caregivers were exceptional. Of course, I did not get a chance to observe all aspects of the school. But from what I saw, FKCPIII Schools is my first choice for my childs kindergarten when we return to Los Angeles this fall.
