We have been so pleased with our experience at FPD. We visited numerous schools, both public and private, in Macon before prayerfully selecting FPD for our son. We found that there were no "bad" choices, just the one that was best for our family, and FPD certainly has been that.
Our son has been offered a very challenging curriculum with many, many opportunities for advanced classes, which his teachers have been preparing him for since the very early grades. He has found many sports and activities to enjoy, and I am continually surprised by the increasing diversity and amount of extra-curricular activities the school offers.
I can't say enough about his teachers. Each year, we have been blessed to know that his teachers truly care about our son, and that they take time in their day to find out what is going on with him and to pray with and for him on many occasions. As he has grown older, he has found mentors in coaches, and prayer partners in teachers, just so much more than we could ever have hoped for when we first chose FPD to be our school home.
The other families at FPD have been very welcoming and have formed close friendships throughout the years as we raise our children with like-mindedness and Christ-focused intent.
The first time I ever "fell in love" with our school was when I visited a pep rally for the football team with the whole school involved. The pep rally was opened with the sweetest, most heart-felt prayer by the head football coach. I had been to parent meetings and school programs before that were opened with prayer, but to see the football coach stand before the entire school and place Christ above the excitement of football, really spoke to my heart. Since then, there have been many moments my heart has swollen with pride for our school, because of accolades and the accomplishments of our students, but nothing makes me more proud than WHO we are, which is a school that not only educates children at a very highly-performing at level, but more importantly, keeps Christ at the center of the curriculum and the focus of the school. If you are "school shopping," put it on your list. This school might be the "right" one for your family, too!
