I went to Fairwinds from Pre-K3 to when I graduated in 2002. Now my daughter is in the Pre-K4 class. If you are looking for a perfect school, then you might as well give up now because there are none to be found. Fairwinds is not perfect, but I stand behind the teachers and staff and what they teach children that go through the school. I graduated from Wilmington University with my Bachelor's degree in Accounting, and without the proper high school education that would not have been possible.
this school is one of the best christian school in the area.the class size is small.
I'm very dissapointed in overall with the way the school administration tries to cover up all the problems. Not all the teachers are well qualified, their curriculum is very bad. I do not reccomend this school to any parent that is looking for a christian education because they are not going to find good values there. The only good star this school has is Mr.Shrier!!!
My kids have been going to Fairwinds for three years and we really like it. The class sized are small, usually less then 15 kids per class, so the teachers can focus more on each child. Also, they use the RenWeb system where the parents can see the kid's grades and homework daily. Mr. Webster, the office staff, and all of the teachers do a great job, they really care about the kids! If I go to them with a problem, even if it isn't a problem at the school, they listen and do whatever they can to help. And, unlike in public school, my kids can hug the teacher and talk about Jesus without feeling like they are doing something wrong.
My son and daughter attended Fairwinds. Our family relocated to Virginia four years ago. We found a Christian school here but it did not compare to Fairwinds. My children now attended public school. The lessons learned there were carried into the public school. We all miss the school soo much. Mr. Shrier is great !
I am currenlty attending Fairwinds. I am in ninth grade and Fairwinds has an extremely small upper school. The ninth and tenth grades only have a total of about 15 students. They group 9th and 10th as one class so basically the tenth grade takes the same classes as the ninth grade(except for math and health). Compared to a public school the classes are aslmost to easy. Getting an A here is as hard as getting a C in public schools. They also have a weird demerit discipline system.
I choose this school for my grandchildren begining with kindergarden. I strongly believe in the method of education and character building instilled in my two grand children that are now in 5th and 3rd grades. Fairwinds promotes Bible principles and shadows our home training. Thank you, Mr. Shier and all the wonderful teachers at FCS.
Both my daughters have been attending Fairwinds for the past 4 years, it provides excellent education, strong christian character and moral value.
They don't admit that their school has problems. They don't deal with all situations well. Kids do get a great christian education. Teachers are not all qualified. A few teachers are handling kids improperly and principal's way of addressing this is less than satisfactory. I think they take discipline to the utmost extreme. I have seen too much covered up. Class sizes vary from 35 to 5 depending on grade level.
