As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

my child just finished kindergarten and had a wonderful experience. the curriculum is developmentally appropriate, creative and to me really what a kindergarten should be. school, teachers, and parent communication were excellent. the only true drawback for me is that the school does not have a real gym and kids spend too much time in front of television. overall my child is looking forward to 1st grade and beyond.

I had a child in this school for 2 years, I didn't really care much for the style of teaching or the lack of discipline and the fact that the school was very dirty. My daughter is now in a public school where she is thrilled to see that the teachers actually TEACH!! There is absolutely no involvement from parents and yes, the before and after care are included in the tuition because they MUST offer something appealing to the parents since the education is not the greatest.

I am a parent of Faith Arts Academy my son has been attending this school for several years now and I have no problems with the school or how he's learning. The staff is great and very caring the school has a before and after care program which is included in the tuition, now where can you find a free before and after care now a days. This school is a good foundation for beginners and for families who want a good religious beginning for their kids.

The teachers' motto to the kids: "What happens in the school stays in the school." Students learn quickly that they will lose privileges for complaining (or if their parents complain)!! [Tthis is paraphrased for my child, a former student].

This school does not have the basic resources such as computers, a library, or a gym for the students to use. This school is unsafe, there is a large hole on the property with barely any thing blocking the students from it. The large hole is where the students used to play, so there is no where for them to move around and run. Getting access to the school leadership is difficult. There are no parent teacher conferences so you don't know how your child is doing until its too late. The after care is set up to baby sit your children so they watch tv and movies, do not expect homework to be done or homework help. So if you want an all day daycare then this is it.

please check the teachers credentials before you enroll your child here. the teachers are not very qualified and are not very concerned with the children's well being. lack of involment from the principal too! my child was there for a couple of years and every year the interest from the teacherskept getting worse. staff seems always very unhappy. chech the school credential before making any decision.

There are at least three other religious private schools in the same price range in less than a 5 mile radius of this school. Do your homework and weigh your options. This school could use some organization and professionalism and, I suspect, some safety upgrades (there is a huge hole and a mountain of dirt on the school's property).

I'm a proud parent of a now 6 year old first grader at faith arts academy. He started there for pre-k. The atmosphere is great, it feels like we are at home when we are around the teachers. All the kids interact well and they get tremendous learning experience along with the spiritual. I recommend any parent to check out our school! -ms. Williams

The teachers are very involved and concerned with the students welfare. The interaction between the students and faculty is one of caring and love, which is something you do not find much of these days. I would recommend this school to any parent looking for small classes, an emphasis on Christine values and superior leadership.McCa
