I have been a student, a parent, & also am currently employed of FBCS! I was a student in the 70s during my middle school years. My children both attended from preschool through the 8th grade here also. I've been employed here for about 16 years in our preschool as a classroom teacher, and on the K-8 side of our campus as art & computer teacher, and am now employed as school secretary. No school is perfect, to be sure, but this place is filled with love and grace and the love of Jesus! The teachers and staff really care about the children who attend here. There is a real "family feel." Academics are excellent and many special classes are also offered (Art, Music, Computers, Spanish, Library, PE, Home Ec). We currently have sports teams for grades 5-8 and more are being added each year! Come check us out!
I went here for middle school and am now in college (go gators!). Great school! I have wonderful memories and still have connections with both students in my class and other classes and members of the staff. I was very well prepared spiritually and academically for high school.
Be careful!! This school has major problems with BULLYING!! Our own personal experience has been very frustrating. There is no counselor that specializes in this type of problem available and most of the time the problem is ignore by faculty. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
I graduated from this school and i went there from kindergaren to 8th grade. It was so great. I'm really glad i had the priviledge to go to this school instead of some random middle school. I am now in highschool and i miss FBCS. Going to school there really taught me how to stand up for what i beleive in and not be ashamed of it.
OMG! i love this school i made a switch in 6th grade from another school and i now think i could have never made it going to any other school! this school has gotten me into sports that otherwise i would have never done! and now i don't hate school, i can't wait to go to school! everyone there is extremely nice...we have the best principle and teachers!
If you a religious person, this is a good school for your child if you are not that religious you may find yourself at odds with some of the teachings and messages that the teachers and staff introduce to your child. Education wise I feel that this school is doing a good job getting the students to elavate to the next level in education.
