My daughters had a great experience in the junior high. It gave them the educational and spiritual tools needed to enter senior high.

My child has attended Faith Christian School for all 9 nears from K-8th grade. The staff, although not perfect, was caring and provided an excellent education for my child. The small class size and adherence to Christian values while providing a safe learning environment was very important to me. I am very thankful for this school--it has made a world of difference for my child and our family.

This is a wonderful school. The staff is outstanding and the kids are great. My only complaint is the kids are given too much homework which interferes with family time.

My four children attended Faith and I could not have been happier. They have all excelled in the local public H.S. A fine private Christian education where faculty, students, staff, and church leaders were exceptional!

We recently enrolled our two sons into Faith and we could not be happier!! The academics are outstanding, the teaching staff is amazing and the communication is the best! The rules, morals and values that we are teaching at home are encouraged during a school day. At other schools they would be pushed to the side! I take my two children to school each morning knowing that they are being taught, watched, respected and handled as they would in my home. We love the reward and praise system they have at this school. It really encourages the children to do their very best!

Great school. Children know what is expected of them and they rise to the occasion. The academic program is excellent and challenging.

This is my child's first year at FCS and I couldn't be happier. I am very pleased with the academic program and the pace at which my daughter is learning. I think the teacher's are doing a wonderful job and show such kindness and love towards the kids.

Academically my child did remarkable and the religious foundation was unmatched. I can certainly appreciate teaching children values and morals and enforcing structure and discipline, but Faith was just too extreme. I don't believe that they have realistic expections of children. Children should not be expected to behave as adults. They are children, subject to horse-play and error in judgement at times but they should not constantly be sent to the principal office for punishment especially if their action did not warrant it. I'm particular concerned with this years recent election and how the school dealt with that. I beleive that we live in a democracy and each individual has a right to vote for the candidate they think is best candidate. I believe that there is a fine line between church and state.

Both our children have gone to FCS since they were 3 years old. FCS continues to provide them with a distinctly Biblical education with eternity in mind! Each of our children are encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers are committed, hard-working born again Christians. The former principal was kind and knew each child by name. He was a great example of a leader. The present principal returns and she is an equally kind and competent leader.

This school provides a very good learning environment for children. They are extremely strict. However, they can be too strict. But overall i think this school is a good place to send your children.

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.
