I'm currently a junior and I been at this school for 3 years and I can't explain how great this school is. When I first arrived at this school my Freshman year, I was shy and I didn't know anyone but everyone was nice and welcoming. The classes are challenging and the teachers are helpful, you just have to go to them and ask. I believe this school is preparing me for college and doing a great job at doing so. My relationship with God has grown so much by just being around the teachers and students. Like any other school, this school is not perfect but it does strive to be.

This school is wonderful. My kids love coming here. They are learning material above grade level and prompted to learn more about their faith. We have been VERY peased.

I have three kids in this school. One in third grade, one in seventh grade, and one a Junior. As a military family we have gone to lots of schools due to military moves. Of all the schools my kids have attended, I can honestly say this is our favorite one. The quality of teachers and education is top notch. My junior is being well prepared for college next year with AP classes. My seventh grader is the one who has the most trouble with all the moving and making new friends, he has told me that he felt that the kids here were kinder and more accepting of him as a new student, and that he feels great about having so many friends at FCS. This is a huge blessing for us! I love the teachers at this school, they care about the character of their students as much as they care about their scholastic achievements. FCS has been the best part of moving to the Ft Bragg area for us, and I would highly recommend it to anyone with any age children. I'm so thankful for it!!

I have taught at this school for several years. The heart of this school is wonderful. It is a grace oriented school where kids are encouraged to grow in their faith and love of The Lord. It has very strong academics--- my own children have thrived here and have been well-prepared for college. I do not agree with the one post that the admin is driven by money. FCS keeps our tuition low so that families can afford to attend. But if people don't pay their bills then unfortunately cannot stay enrolled. The overwhelming majority of staff absolutely loves our jobs and the ministry of FCS and we wouldn't want to teach anywhere else.

I have been to a few Christian schools since we move around with the military. We absolutely love this school. We never want to leave it. Our kids thrive here and we love the teachers and admin. Everyone is warm and welcoming and genuinely love and care for my kids. My kids are getting a wonderful God centered and very rigorous academic education

FCS is an awesome school. I am a parent with 3 kids there and know first hand how much the teachers love the kids and wants them to do well. Some of the people complaining about the FCS admin on this site must have kids who do bad stuff. It is true, Mrs Peters will not allow bad behavior and she does kick kids out who are mean or disrespectful.. But for parents like me who want a school environment that is academic, safe and filled with good kids, I am thankful she doesn't allow the problem kids to rule the school. She will kick them out. But I do know she extends grace and mercy a lot before she does it... some parents just seem to think their kids behavior doesn't matter... I also know firsthand that whenever I have had a concern Mrs Peters has always listened to me and either explained the school's position or made a change in policy as a result of my concern. I find her very approachable and genuine The school does monitor social media sites but kids and parents know this before hand...most of us parents are thrilled they work so hard to keep bad stuff out of the school.

I almost cried when reading some of the reviews on here! I am a single mother of 2 kids that now attend FCS. I can tell you that this school has been a great blessing to me and my children. After home schooling for 7 years, I had to find a school that would help my children grow and learn in a Christ centered atmosphere. My children walked into school and instantly became part of a family! The teachers all got together with me and had a group meeting on what they could do to help me and my kids. They prayed before and after the meeting. The principle took quick action in helping my son through a rough time in his life, where I felt even my church had let me down. The bible teacher has reached out to my son and made a huge difference in his life on and off campus. I have gone to almost all the football games and I can tell you I have seen where our coaches have taught more than just the game but how to be the better man on the field as well. I love the school and feel blessed to have the honor of calling FCS home. They aren't about money, but they need it to keep the doors open. Respect, discipline, love and Jesus are taught at this school and I recommend this FCS. GO WARRIORS!

I have a Grandchild that has attended FCS since Kindergarten (Daycare as well). Her learning skills are very astonishing! I have had no bad experiences with any teachers and Staff and was shocked when reading reviews! Several were way off base, but one that stood out was way far from the truth......My Grandchild has been through a different teacher each grade (just like any other school) I have not experienced any great amount of turnovers! (?) At the beginning of the school year, I have always been greeted with a prayful Teacher and one who prays with my child in times of trouble and for other students who maybe out sick. My Grandchilds prayer life is awesome and is way better then mines and often teaches me a new direction in prayer. I feel bad for parents who claim to have had a bad experience, so therefore I pray the Lord continues to look over you and your loved one, but I also pray you and your child never loose the Faith and trust in Gods Will! I am sure I speak for FCS, we pray for those troubled and continue to keep prayer over you and your family! GOD BLESS!

We have had two graduates from FCS and another currently in high school. This is the only school our three have ever attended - beginning in preschool. One of the things I treasure - and there are many - is the fact that great teachers continue to teach year after year and have taught all three of our children. These seasoned teachers are such a blessing - and you can "look forward to each year" knowing that those awesome teachers that you already trust and know are teaching with excellence - both academically as well as teaching about Christ in the classroom. - are in place. Our oldest two have thrived in college and were fully prepared. The spiritual climate at FCS is second to none - all of our kids were involved in ministry and are strong Christ followers. We thank the LORD for FCS and its staff!

My son has been attending FCS since Pre-K. The teachers and staff have helped him grow into a bright, caring, well developed young man. We love FCS!

I have 2 daughters that attend FCS and this is the second year we have had them there. As a military family we love this school and have from the very beginning. While my husband was deployed I received nothing but support and understanding. The teachers are very caring and you can see that they truly love their job. As I read through some of the negative reviews I saw some comments about the staff being too strict...really?!?!?! In my opinion, our world has become too relaxed when it comes to disciplining our children and thus the lack of respect and reverence young people have towards their elders. I applaud FCS for sticking to their morals and values and maintaining a level of discipline that my kids also have at home. Public schools (especially in Fayetteville) just do not measure up to the quality of discipline AND education that my children are receiving at FCS. I actually taught 5th grade at one of the Cumberland County public schools and was mortified at what was ALLOWED to happen. I am a huge believer in FCS and I do think I am getting my monies worth there.

Our children had attended two other private schools before we came to FCS and the difference is between night and day. Our boys have blossomed and we all love the positive atmosphere there. There is a lot of camaraderie and everyone is treated equally (as opposed to one of the previous schools they attended where there was a lot of cliques both among parents and students). Here we have a sense of belonging and feel like we are a part of something greater than ourselves. Aside from the positive social atmosphere the spiritual atmosphere is also excellent. The school emphasizes both academics and character, and the school has a great athletics/sports program. The music curriculum is also top performing. The staff and administration work together as a team, and parents are involved in all aspects and levels of the school's life. Tuition is affordable. One more thing we love is the many avenues made available to students to be involved in causes greater than themselves -- missions, volunteering, etc.

After attending public schools in Cumberland County for one year, we searched all private school options in Fayetteville. FCS is warm, friendly, and inviting compared to other Christian schools in town. The kids have been challenged academically and spiritually nurtured. We have been at FCS for four years now and feel it is a perfect fit. The staff believes in building character, the athletic program is great, kids are expected to behave and learn and issues are dealt with in a professional and Godly manner. Please visit the FCS campus and see for yourself!

My kids love their teachers, their classes and the office staff at FCS. We were new to the area last year and attended a public school spring semester 2010. There I learned that if my children were not failing or causing trouble, the school just didn't have the time or resources to deal with them. Now my kids have had tutoring when necessary, and loads of encouragement from all of the staff. I was not sure that I wanted to pay for private school, but our experience at FCS changed my mind. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity for my kids to attend this school.

A comprehensive approach with the teacher, educational assistants, outside programs integrated into the classroom curriculum, i.e LIPS, Counseling, private musical instrument lessons, sports, dance and many more along with the principals at the different levels and the other teachers. My children receive a complete "community" approach which enables the varying gifts and expertise to be applied most effectively-unlike the "cookie cutter" state standardized approach in the public sector and other private schools, as well. As a working mother, my children would not have the privilege of accessing these many facets of educational and/or extracurricular activities that make school much more intrinsic for the student. Education is an expense regardless of public or private-you pay in some form or another; however, one must evaluate-"What is my child's education/future/college opportunities/character and community ownership worth?" We are on a very tight budget and we choose to make many sacrifices in order to accommodate and fully engage all possibilities presented for our children's future. God is good and he always seems to provide.

All of our children began attending Fayetteville Christian this school year. We have had an incredible experience! As parents of a first grader, fifth grader, and sixth grader, we have been delighted that all of our children have acclimated to the school so well and that the environment truly feels like a family. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Fayetteville Christian is Christ-centered and provides our children with an excellent education. We are excited about the years to come!

Fayetteville Christian School is amazing! Having spanned 10 years as a family with 4 children passing through it's hallways (2 graduated and 2 currently attending), FCS has continuously provided solid Academic excellence while nurturing and challenging students to walk out their faith in God daily. It is unfortunate to read a negative review concerning the office staff, as this has not been my experience. I have found the office to be friendly, personable and always willing to discuss any concerns I may have. We all need to remember that the Administrative offices have the responsibility of managing the ministry of FCS while maintaining the business side as well. A balancing act they perform quite well!

We came to FCS after a month in Harnett county public schools. This school is great. My sons are happy and have made friends quickly. We love that the boys are being challenged academically and spiritually. We know that they are being surrounded by children with the same values and character. The teachers are great, supportive, and we love the family feel of the school. The best decision we have made for our boys and we are thrilled to have them here.

I have children in elementary, junior high and high school at Fayetteville Christian School. Therefore, I can attest to all levels of the school. My elementary student is loved and nurtured in a positive supportive environment. My junior high student is growing her walk with Christ while learning to be responsible and accountable. My high school student is developing a Christian Worldview while received an impeccable education. As a parent, I have been welcomed and supported by the administration, staff, and teachers. If you are looking for a safe, compassionate, geunine Christian education then please tour FCS. I am certain that you will be as welcomed as we were.

GREAT SCHOOL!!! My child has been at FCS since the start of his 8th grade year. The day we went to tour the school, we knew it was the school for our son. There is not enough space or time to thank the entire staff for the values, education and most of all the love they have instilled in him. I know with out a "shawdow of doubt" that God has blessed us by allowing our child to attend FCS. If you are looking for a school that teaches values, character, sportsmanship, leadership, a well rounded curriculum, and the Word of God; then Fayetteville Christian School is the place to be. THANK YOU FCS FOR THE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE MY CHILD AND FAMILY HAS HAD!!!!
