Florida Christian is an excellent school. Based on Biblical Principles, FCS is a great school with great academic achievements. Music programs include choir and band. All the basic sports have teams for both boys and girls (Football,Cheerleading,Basketball,Volleyball,Soccer, and etc.)The professors are excellent in their fields and are kind to their students. Personally, I love this school.
Major failure for me is its fundamentalist Christian slant. Primary mission is to proselytize, secondary is to educate. The good side is a very good music program, well-behaved kids and very strong emphasis on ethics. Verbal/english is good and much stronger than math and science. I would prefer a better math and science curriculum, but perhaps that's not possible for a religious school.
Florida Christian is a nice school. They have nice teachers and staff. As for their academic programs,there is not as good as other schools. A lot of the teachers really don't seem teach the student's well. I have had many problems 'especially with math' for my child. I am only saying this for middle and high school. Elementary is excellent and I highly reccomend having your child there for those years. Middle and high, I am not too sure because it is the same teachers for most of the years. The students end up having trouble learning. Something elese is there music, and art programs are very limited. Although, athletics are excellent! The school is also overcrouded. Florida Christian has some good things and some bad things. That is my opinion.
Great school. Great teachers. Great Curriculum. I love Florida Christian!
Great school, lots of great teachers and programs. Good sports teams.
My child finished Kendall Christian Elementary school and started middle school at FCS. It was a perfect fit. FCS had the Christ-centered environment and excellent academics that my child had at KCS; so the transition was very smooth.
My child initially started at FL Christian after a few months in an unamed public school. It was so much better than I'd hoped with my bar set high. The academics are rigorous, about 1 yr above state standards. God is interwoven everywhere in the curriculum & in school. The discipline is well-structured & consistent, not harsh. There's a great selection of extracurricular activities. Of course tutition is pricey as with all private but worth every penny. We, the parents are willingly so involved with school for all our children that even though it's a mid-size school, it truly feels as one big happy Christian Family.
Academics have greatly improved over the past couople of years. Definitely a large amount of extra-curricular activities to choose from allowing your child to have a well-rounded education.
FCS is a top quality Christian school, one of the best in the state. Academics have improved greatly over the past 10 years, and the spiritual foundation provided is excellent. The program offers a wide variety of opportunities for students of all ages.
I believe FC is an exellent school. It has quality teachers, very good sports and other activities and their band program is excellent.
My daughter has been a student since 2000. Florida Christian is a wonderful, professional school. Very nurturing. The teacher are extremely dedicated, knowledgeable, and full of ideas through God's ways.
We have one son in college who thanks us for the great education he received at FCS. Another son is a senior this year and a daughter in 9th. This school is #1 in education! Thank you FCS!
