The older kids seem like one of the stronger parts of this place - friendly and nice to e/o and the younger kids.

First Presbyterian Prep is excellent. After fully expecting to send our kids to the neighborhood public school, we were impressed (really shocked) by how nice and friendly the elementary school kids were toward our then-preschoolers (FP preschool is great, too!) at a family funfest. We looked at the curriculum and thought it was sound so we tried it out. The kids love it and are learning the reading, writing and math we expected in kindergarten and 1st grade. Their teachers support them with each new lesson. Keeping us there, since both parents work, is the flexibility of the admin with good options for before and after school and holidays.

This is our second year at this school, I have one in the preschool and one is the elementary school. Both my kids love the school. The education they are getting is amazing. We have the most caring teachers and staff. There is a strong sense of community amongst the families as well.

LOVE First Pres!! We have been here 3 years and have never felt more blessed. Both the preschool and elementary are amazing! Our two children are thriving both socially and academically. The curriculum is excellent, teachers are loving, small class size, everyone know each other and looks out for one another. If you are looking for an outstanding school, look no further! Come and see for yourself!

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
There is no bullying at all, and anyways it's not up to the school to control the kids. If there was "bullying," it was managed very well.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are amazing, caring, good teachers who actually teach, and prepare you for middle school.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework is just fine, not too little, not too much. Don't worry about homework lol.

I loved this school so much and I sure every single student who went to this school feels the same way. I don't know how on Earth people could give this school a 1,2, or 3. The teachers prepared me for middle school and it is an amazing community. If you are a parent looking for elementary school, ignore, ignore, ignore, the bad comments and send your kid to this school. I have no clue where those bad comments came from.

We have been at First Presbyterian Weekday School for 11 years. Our oldest, my daughter, graduated two years ago and is now in her second year at Chaminade achieving honors every semester. Our son is still there in second grade and is having a blast. Great family feel and very warm and hospitable. Very strong educational environment while being a lot of fun for all.



- a
We are so happy at First Pres. We moved our son there for second grade and have been so thrilled with it in every way. It's academically challenging, his classroom size is small (his second grade has about 24), and there's a real sense of community and parent involvement that was missing from our previous school. This is a hidden gem!
