Fundamentally ok. Not all teachers are created equal; this school is a prime example of it. You have some great teachers and then you have some that are so partial to some students then to others & it shows. I have a child who attended SFCS for several years & graduated from here. I took my other child out and sent to another priv. school b/c the academic level is not equally distributed across all grade levels. Christian values are skewed & only apply when some teachers want to make a point...their point...not a Biblical point. Being humble & leading by example and confessing when they are wrong is not part of their core christian values; so many former parents and students were not as satisfied...me included. My oldest was popular and had a 4.0 but survived and did well because of our commitment to his/her success. Be cautious

I find this to be a great school where the children are given to opportunity to experience a wide variety of activities. They are given the opporunity to excel as well as work on things they struggle on. Great school overall!

Great elementary school for the formative years of your child. Gives your child a good christian and moral foundation. Academically good too though not the regular teacher tutoring you are familiar with. The kids work independently most of the time. The teachers act more as Monitors and Guides.
