All three of our now adult children attended Faith Community from Kindergarden through 5th grade. They were loved, mentored, nurtured and given sound Christian education. It is particularly relevant that teacher turnover is extremely low and it is a safe environment, enriched by great field trips and fun experiences. I hope that our grandchildren will be attending there as well. We loved it!

Faith is an amazing school. We have three boys and two are graduates and have moved on. One now in College and the second a Senior. They attended from Kinder to 6th grade. The education, individual attention and love provided by Faith teachers and staff have develped them into exceptional students and respectful young men. The perfect class sizes and the curriculum, as well as the Faith based principals are what every child deserves. We love it so much after 5 years we are back at Faith with our 3rd son. We didn't even question what school we would be enrolling him at. It was a given! He is now in 3rd grade and loving every minute of it. From class studies, to P.E., Computer Lab, Chapel time, field trips and much more. We hope and pray you will come and visit, you'll never want to leave.

All three of my children went to this school. The teachers were wonderful. Great field trips., and the education was excellent. My kids were well prepared going into middle school. The class sizes were just right in giving the teacher time to give each child the attention they needed. My children were taught Godly principles thrrough lessons and the teachers examples. Every year they have a Spring musical that allows every child to participate in some way. We all loved this school and miss it very much.

My grandson attended Faith Community from Kg through 6th grade. The principal, teachers and staff were excellent. My grandson is a very caring and tenderhearted young man. He was encouraged and nurtured every year. He received an excellent academic education, but more important, he was led in learning to know and worship the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am a teacher in the public schools and also a parent of children at FCCS. Although I have a call to teach in the public arena, God placed on my husband's and my heart to guard our children as much as we could for as long as we could. FCCS has done an exceptional job laying a strong and secure foundation. This school and the staff are a sanctuary from much of the "pollution in the world" and nurture the full development of each child. Our children are excelling academically, growing emotionally and socially and blossoming in their spiritual development. The school is like a giant family where older students befriend younger ones, and families reach out to assist and care for one another-it's a total package way beyond just an education! We count our blessings that our children are able to attend FCCS.

I have 3 kids who have graduated from Faith. All of my kids have enjoyed being a part of the Faith Community family. As a parent it was great comfort to know that our kids were being prayed over on a regular basis. The education is outstanding. All my kids were more than prepared to move on. They excelled since graduating from Faith. They have so many great memories! We love Faith!! They're now all 3 at SDSU pursuing two medical doctor careers and a math career.

All 3 of my children attended Faith Community School. This school, the teachers and the leadership directly benefited not only my children but myself as well as their parent. We knew we were genuinely cared about and prayed for. The school attended to the needs of our family while providing excellent education and a safe environment for learning and growth. The families that attend the school are amazing and provide a great resource for fellowship. I highly recommend this school and would send my kids there again if we had to do it all over.

I have 2 boys who have graduated from Faith and my 3rd son is currently a student. All of my boys have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Faith Community family. As a parent it is a great comfort to know that our kids are being prayed over on a regular basis. The education is outstanding. Both of my older sons were more than prepared for Jr & Sr. High school and have exceled since graduating from Faith. The kids build a lifetime of memories with each other and with the teachers and principal. My wife and I highly recommend Faith Community Schools.

Two of my three boys have attended Faith since kindergarten. My third son will begin kindergarten next year. Faith is fantastic in every way! The Principal, teachers, staff, all are very caring, loving and have a wonderful foundation of Christ in their lives which shows in their everyday dealings with the children. The class sizes are another great thing about Faith. They avg 15 or so children to each class. I feel that this is very beneficial for children to receive maximum one on one teaching as well as in a group setting. The teacher and student build a relationship far deeper then if there were 25-30 children per class which unfortunately, is the case in many public schools. My children enjoy going to school and that alone, makes mornings and afternoons, so much brighter!

Strong academic programs, outstanding leadership, wonderful teachers, and overall a school that cares for the well-being of all of the students. If you are looking for a school were your children will be the focus, the student teacher ratio is small and communication is a priority, search no further. This is an amazing school and I have (and will continue) to recommend this school to all parents who truly want their children's academic needs met.

We have found Faith Community to be such a blessing over all the years we have been sending our children there. The teachers and the staff are caring, supportive, communicative and are very invested in helping the kids grow spiritually and academically. The community of parents is also amazing. There are so many wonderful parents that come together to help their kids and the school meet it's goals. We have also greatly appreciated the school's smaller class sizes and their ability to offer all of this at a monthly tuition that is reasonable. Overall, we believe Faith to be a quality school that will help propel children to achieving a solid foundation. We would definitely recommend Faith.

This is our 6th year at FCCS. Now that my son is in 5th grade, I need to start looking at different middle schools for him. It's scarey for me and I'm sure him too being in a class size of 22 to probably 30+. The educational experience that my son has had at FCCS can't be compared to anything, because it's the best. I truly wish that FCCS was able to go through 12th grade, but I know that God will direct me the right way for my son. If you want your child to have a wonderful educational experience, please come visit FCCS.

I have really enjoyed working at Faith. Right from the beginning I felt like part of the family and was welcomed in. I look forward to going to work everyday because I know that what I am teaching is in accordance with God's Word and is portraying a positive message to the students. I have respect for the other staff members, as they are all strong godly examples and really do their best for the students.

This is my son's 6th year at Faith and my daughter's 3rd year. The school has been a blessing for us. Both my children are kind, well mannered, and have a strong belief in God. They also have gotten a wonderful education. I would recommend this school to anyone! The teachers' are very caring and the class sizes are wonderfully small. I asked my kids how many stars they would give their school and they both gave it 5 stars!

Love this school & staff. My granddaughter started Kindergarten this year and her teacher is wonderful. The class size is small so the students get the attention and help they need while getting a great education.
