My children attended Community of Faith Christian School. They received a superior academic foundation, which enabled them to succeed in high school and to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. Thanks to Community of Faith, they stand firm in their walk with the Lord, serving in their local churches and impacting their community in the business world.

CFCS is a fantastic school that for several years has provided the children of our community with a sound academic and spiritual foundation. The school provides an excellent learning environment where the students are educated, encouraged, edified, and cared for on a daily basis. The student to teacher ratio is ideal; it provides the kids with an environment that is conducive to learning, and it promotes class and school unity. Simply put, CFCS is a school that is committed to the absolute well-being of its students!

Our children truly enjoyed their years at Community of Faith. The curriculum and caring teachers enabled them to grow academically and spiritually. While attending college, one of our children thanked us for giving him a good foundation at CFCS. All of our children are college graduates and working in a profession. Thank you Mrs. Mixer for your loving care during their formative years at CFCS.

This is an amazing school, I could not have more respect for Ms Mixer and her tender heart education in a Christian atmosphere.

My son has been a student of this school for the last 2 years. Next year he will start K5. I cannot be more thankfull for how his teachers have helped him develop not only academically, but phisically and spiritually. The cirriculum that is taught is very advanced and comprehensive at all grades. I happen to know this very well because I know other parents who have their children in upper grades and, not only do they come several grades advanced in their standardized nation-wide tests but because when they have graduated and they go to high school, they have been so much better prepared than the rest of their high school peers.

I enrolled my daughter at Community of Faith Christian School last year in October,after deciding the public school was no longer a good fit. My daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia and I felt she was not getting the proper instruction by the public school. I was hesistate to move my daughter in the middle of the school year but now I know it was the best choice. Mrs.Mixer the school principle demonstrated great knowledge with children with special needs. Mrs . Mixer sat down with my husband and I. She explained everything her staff had to offer. After having this extensive conversation regarding my daughter and her special needs, I enrolled her and have been jumping for joy every sense! Mrs. Mixer and her staff have embraced my daughter and I have seen the growth in her knowledge academically and spiritually. If you are looking for a school with a great principle , a staff with extensive knowledge and special programs offered for children with special needs , then Community of Faith is the school for you. Today is my daughters first day back to school and we both are so greatful to began a new school year at Community of Faith Christian School.

Our children have been at Community of Faith Christian school for a total of 12 years now. We have never been disappointed. The principal and the teachers are caring and demonstrate a Christian attitude. One of our children required extra attention and the school was very supportive. As a result, our child has grown into a wonderful teenager. The principal and staff even obtained additional educational to assist our child with his learning needs. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a loving Christian atmosphere with high educational standards. Our children are well above the high school levels as compared with their friends in public and other private schools. We are blessed to have sent our children to this wonderful school!

My daughter has ADHD and she and our family have been truly blessed as she has attended this school over the past two years! I truly believe her teachers' exceptional awareness of her needs and their loving and wise teaching strategies helped her succeed academically and socially. As a parent, I always had easy access to her teachers and felt we could work together for her success. Over time, I have grown to respect them for their professionalism as well as their committment to the students. I became involved with the staff, principal and other parents as well and am happy to report that they are some of the finest people I have met in my life. I value order, love of God, high family values and anything else that is virtuous among other things and I am happy my daughter and our family have enjoyed these characteristics at her school. My only regret is that I didn't know about this wonderful place earlier on!

What started to be a lovely experience turned out to be a nightmare!! Honestly, I can't believe the comments that have been left about this school... I would not be surprised if the principal asked them to comment. My child was at this school for two years too many. The administration is VERY unorganized, trickling down from the principal/owner. The principal/owner is very rude to her staff and parents alike. The teachers are constantly on their cell phones... and then answer to this schools discipline is very archaic, often humiliating the students. The kindergarten teacher alone screams at her children. If your child has ADD or ADHD DO NOT BRING THEM HERE!! The principal's answer to ADD/ADHD is taking meds! The school has a lot of potential, but with the principal/owner at the helm ... it will continue to go down. The principal/Owner should have retired years ago. She does not take accountability, and will go as far as blaming her staff for her mistakes.

My kids attended CFCS many years ago and now my grandson is enrolled. I think that speaks volumes for how much we like the school. One of the things I like most about them is that they have the perfect size classrooms. I like their curriculum and of course the great teachers.

The principal at CFCS really projects a positive image for the kids, and the teachers do a wonderful job in the classroom and keeping us updated on how the kids are doing. They really do a nice job keeping the workload and difficulty level and a pace so that they are ready for the next level in schooling. They have been good about updating the technology and adding components to the computers over the past few years. The best thing about Community of Faith Christian is the great Christian atmosphere they have developed at the school. It's one of the best private schools in El Paso for the wonderful learning environment. - Cindy

This is my daughters 2nd year at the school and I'm very pleased. I feel very secure having my daughters there, I feel that safety is #1 for the kids. I also like their smaller class sizes and attention to detail. The communication between the teachers and parents is excellent. You can see your child's progress right on their website. They update it with their homework on a regular basis. It's a great school overall. -Alma T

My daughter started going to CFCS in preschool and now she's in the first grade. I think their class sizes are perfect and the school stays up to date with modern technologies and educational tools. They encourage the parents to get involved and their teachers never miss a beat. I also appreciate their fair, positive and appropriate discipline policies (my daughter has first hand experience with that). Overall I am very pleased and I know she will be well prepared for the 2nd grade. -Patricia Q

The principal at CFCS is awesome and very caring toward the students. The kinder teacher is great with the students and knows what she is doing. One thing I didn't like from K3 and up is the teachers all have their personal cell phones in the classrooms. For the younger kids there is no extracurricular activities , which makes it hard for the children to make new friends. I have never experienced such young kids having clicks at that age. Overall though the staff is very nice and parental involvement is at a high.

My daughter attended preschool at Community of Faith, and I was very impressed with the whole school. The faculty is wonderful and caring. They made sure that my daughter got a top notch education, even in preschool. It is one big family. I wish more schools were this good.
