This is a wonderful school. I highly reccommend it to any parent who wants a small school setting with great, caring teachers and great scholastics. The curriculum includes music, art, P.E., and computer class. Parents are always encouraged to be involved in the class and school and you can talk to the teacher every day if needed.

My children have attended FUMS for 3 years now and I have been very satisfied with the academic curriculum as well as the Christian education they are receiving. The teachers and staff know me and my children by name and are always helpful and pleasant.

Our son has been going to this school for 4 years now. He started in pre-K and now is in the second grade. They really care about the children and the discipline is good. They are taught to respect others and lead a good life.

My two children have been going to this school since Pre K now in the 4th and 3rd grade. I wish this great school had 6th through 12 grade.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
