My four children are graduates of Faith Christian school. As a single parent, it was a great sacrifice to send them there but so worth it! Academically it surpasses all the public schools, the teachers are dedicated to the education and spiritual growth of the children, the principal & founder of the school is second to none.

This is a wonderful school. We have three Grandchildren attending, and they are receiving an excellent scholastic, athletic, and moral education at Faith Christian. I wish our children could all have attended such a school.

The teachers are wonderful. Some people have had difficulty with the principal. The school is good if you can afford the tuition.

We started at Faith this year after having been at another Christian school that closed due to enrollment problems. We have been so pleased with the quality of education, care of the staff and teachers for our child, and the high expectations they place on the students that we are planning to keep both of our children here through 8th grade. There is a wide variety of student extra-curricular activities including cheerleading, volleyball, basketball, and track along with an excellent music and arts program. This community of parents and students is very supportive and attentive to the needs of the student body and the staff. The facility is beautiful as well, providing a gym, sports field, playground, stage, and excellent classroom space. The kids are given opportunity to interact with more than one classroom teacher which provides a well rounded experience and extra support for the kids. I highly recommend this school!

Our family has been apart of Faith since 1998. We chose this school for our children based on its academic excellence of teaching students the basics by repitition using good curriculumn. The fact it is a nondenominational christian school is such a plus. They lovingly accept children of many different religious backgrounds. Their Bible time is taught right from Gods Word, all the teachers have a great commitment to Jesus and are living curriculumn. Faith has a strong music department, they just put on the musical, A Christmas Carol. They offer basketball for boys and girls in 5th -8th grade, volleyball for girls in 5th -8th grade, and track in the spring for 5th-8th grade. Cheerleading is also offered for 5th-8th grade for girls. Our last child will be grraduating this year (2006). He is socialy, academically and spiritually prepared for high school. It has been a wonderful learning experience.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
