We have three kids in the elementary classes for the first time this year! Wonderful school! We are a military family so we were fairly new to the area. Everyone is so warm and inviting! The kids all made friends so quickly and they are learning so much! The teachers and staff really care so much about the kids! We also utilize some special services. All of those staff members have also been amazing! There is a PM Academy for the kids as well. Really nice option for families! Just a really great and caring school! Thank you so much for making our kids feel right at home!
I have two children attending this school. We are new to the community due to the military stationing us at Ft. Riley. My children felt loved and accepted the minute they walked into the building. The classroom sizes are small with my children having lots of one on one time with the teacher. Each subject area challenges my children and they are becoming independent, critical-thinking students.
We currently have 4 children at this school ranging from 2nd grade to 10th grade. ALL of our children LOVE their school!!! We feel so fortunate to be a part of the community there. Exceptional academics, wonderful teachers and staff, excellent Christian education. One of my older children has special needs. We have been able to build such good relationships with his teachers, who are committed to working with him and helping him succeed. As parents, we can't explain what a peace of mind it gives us knowing that our children spend their days where our values and priorities are reinforced, where they are loved and prayed for and encouraged. While a smaller Christian school does not have the resources and amenities of the larger public schools, what Flint Hills Christian School does provide is of far greater importance to us.
We made the decision to pull the children out of public school and we are very satisfied . This school is very friendly and helpful. They are welcoming to military families also a big plus! Kids love Chapel and learning about Jesus plus are very eager to go to school !
You may read other posts on here how this school is just like a public school, that there is still bullying, that the school is not safe for your children. I'm here to tell you that they are wrong. It's impossible to stop all bullying, but this school leaves other public schools in the dust when it comes to a friendly and positive atmosphere. These teachers actually care for the student's future. They spend their time working for very little money to make a difference in your children's life. They could move on to a public school and make thrice the amount of money, but they don't! If you are not a Christian believer, this is not the school for you. It will seem off and forcefully spoken in its curriculum, but to those true Christians, this is home (on earth at least). I have never been happier at any of the past three schools that I have attended than I am at this school. They provide outstanding assistance for all students, especially those with special needs.
Great elementary teachers. Office staff are outstanding and very caring/professional. Unfortunately, one does need to conform to fit in. Preferential treatment to some students, shown by some teachers is another longstanding problem. Some issues with bullying, not physical, but emotional are allowed and there is little that can be done at this point to change that. Security is improving, but is very minimal, and this is a constant concern with this school.
This school is amazing. The best kept secret in Manhattan. Teacher student ratio is low. Teachers become very involved with the students and their learning style. They do not teach Common Core which is a huge benefit, academically. They teach the whole person and care about intellectual, emotional and social development. Communication is very clear and parents are collaborators. Great school and worth every penny!
