Franklin Road Christian School offers an excellent education and learning environment for my children. Rigorous academics with winning Fine Arts and sports allow students to develop their own gifts and talents! My children are innovative and careful problem solvers and enjoy learning. I highly recommend Franklin Road Christian School for all Christian families who desire for their children to be devoted followers of Christ!

Franklin Road Christian School is top notch. They nurture Mind, Body and Spirit. We have 2 children in the Elementary school and we have never regretted pulling them from the public school system. Class sizes are smaller, the teachers are fantastic as is the administration. The curriculum includes music, arts, foreign language, computers as well as core academics. It is a college prep school with a track record to prove it. If you're looking for a place that nurtures the "whole" child building character along the way...this is it!

FRCS is a superb learning environment with rigorous academics, excellent athletics and fine arts, as well as a nurturing, teaching, spiritual emphasis. We couldn't be happier with our choice of FRCS. We highly recommend FRCS to all families desiring a college preparatory school, with a Christian philosophy!

Franklin Road is everything we want for our children's education...excellence in academics, athletics, fine arts, and spiritual growth. The faculty are very caring and nurturing to each student. We couldn't ask for more! Our three children are thriving and happy..and excelling in each area of their development. We have twins entering fourth grade next year, and a kindergartner. What a blessing the staff and faculty are to our family!

Keely entered Franklin Road Christian School three years ago, beginning High School. We carefully reviewed schools in a 30 mile radius and have never regretted our choice of FRCS. Keely has been prepared academically to succeed in any college/career. She was ill this fall, missing 40 days, and the teachers were outstanding, even providing private tutoring to keep Keely caught up with her classmates. Spiritually she has grown to be able to defend what she believes in her Christian faith. Not attending the church that supports this school, we have found nothing objectional about the wonderful biblical teachings taught. Far more than a school for us, FRCS is a loving family that cares about our daughter and her success in life. There are outstanding special programs, such as having a small group she meets daily with that shares praises and concerns. You will feel and experience God's presence at FRCS.

My two sons attended Franklin Road Christian School from Kindergarten to their graduation in 2001 and 2002. They received the highest quality education and were well-prepared for college upon graduating. We were so very pleased with the staff and administration. They are a wonderful group of caring individuals who seek to bring out the best in each student. Franklin Road is not only known for excellent academics, but the extra-curricular activities were wonderful for my sons. Parent involvement is welcome, and it was a 'home' to my sons, my husband and myself. Truly an outstanding school My sons talk often of their 'school days' at Franklin Road, and the many wonderful memories they will have for a life-time.

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.
