I recommend United Faith Christian Academy. The school has a great academic program. The age range from preschooler through high school. It has a strong Christian value.It teaches it's student how to be future Leaders for tomorrow. The teachers and facilities are great with the students. They put the students needs first.
This school is very small, a small school can mean a lot of things for different people. There is about 300 students k-12. The school BUILDING is old it is about 20 years old, I believed it opened in 86'. Because it is so old the building is dirty and "unstable", a lot of the desks, flooring, and books are about the same age as the school itself. The staff in very unprofessional and over the years have had many problems with the staff. The current head master has only been there a year because they also have trouble finding a permanent head master. One major thing people should know is that they do ask certain (wealthy) people for money. The teachers are ok... I will say this, they complain about how much they get paid. A lot of teachers come and go. The lunch is great, taste wise, but health wise is terrible, someone's daily school lunch would be, pizza and french fries with a diet coke and maybe a candy bar or on some days ice cream costing $5. If you ask every student if they like United Faith Christian Academy 80% of the student would say no. The 10% that say yes like it because the other school they went to they were bullied. And they other 10% are the teacher's children.
I couldn't be more pleased with the active encouragement the teachers give my daughter, and their communication with the parents is great! The class size is just right, and the rooms are large enough so that students can move around and have lot of work space. There is a lot of homework, which is one of my only negatives, and there is always weekend work. I wish they would not assign homework on the weekends to the lower grades. Other than that, we love UFCA! :)
This school maximizes the learning AND reflects Christ as it provides an accredited, Christ-centered, college prep education. Distinctives include: small classes, international student program, Buddy Class program, and strong academic/curriculum leadership.
UFCA is headed in the right direction. It may not be as big or wealthy as some other schools, but has a much improved emphasis on rigorous College Preparatory academics while still keeping the strong commitment to Christian mission and vision.
