My son enrolled in Fort Worth Christian School as a junior last year. I was concerned about him changing school two years before graduating. What we saw immediately was how he connected with his teachers and really liked them. This was a new experience for him. The teachers encouraged and challenged him academically making the transition a really good one. He was able to receive 12 college hours by taking dual credit classes and he really liked the MacBooks that was given to the students. We appreciate the school teaching Bible, Christian values and service to others. Our son had the opportunity to go on one of FWC's mission trips to Nicaragua this year. It was a life-changing experience he will never forget. These quality experiences helped him develop some good friendships. We look forward to a great senior year at FWC.
Fort Worth Christian School has been a great choice for our family. Our children were there for nine years transferring in from a public elementary school. One of the biggest blessings of FWC was the dual-credit offerings in high school. Both of our children graduated with numerous college credit hours and were very prepared academically for college. The Christian environment prepared our kids for a lifetime of service.
As a student of this school, I love the teachers and staff but have to agree about the bad/seriously lacking fine arts program. This is a great school, but it is NOT balanced. It is MUCH too heavily focused on athletics and the art program is going by the wayside. What if you aren't an athelete but rather an artist- what then? Very sad, because my friend at another christian school nearby tells me of LOTS of things they are doing/offering that we at FWC don't get. My parents are having to work extra to keep me here, but unless something seriously improves with the fine arts program, we will be switching to another school.
I have been a parent at FWC for 14 years. My oldest son graduated 2 years ago and now I have another one in FWC. The school has been a blessing to our kids and this family. The teachers care about all the students. The high school principal is very well respected by the students and his leadership is outstanding.
As a sophomore who has attended FWC since pre-k, I can honestly say there has been some favoritism issues since the beginning. The school claims to simply be a Christian school, but the behavior of the children suggests otherwise. I've been struggling with bullies for the longest time and the faculty does nothing about it. In fact, those students who make fun of me are the ones recognized as being the most "Christ-like." Since when was bullying Christ-like? Many of the students all attend the same church and those are the favorites of the stadd. If you are not affiliated with the Church of Christ, you will be treated as a second class citizen. It's been that way the last twelve years. The school is only centered around athletics so if you are not an athlete, you will be treated as nothing to the school. The fine arts program is lousy and nobody takes it seriously. It's only athletics that's valued. For anyone looking to come to FWC, I do not recommend it because the students there will pick on you for your individuality. If your an athlete who likes making fun of others, being like everyone else, and not care about academics, then FWC is the place for you.
I have two children who currently attend Ft. Worth Christian High School. One has been at FWC since middle school and the other recently started high school at FWC. The principal is a model administrator. He knows each student by name and his rapport with students is amazing. The teachers care deeply for the students and want to see them succeed. Almost all of the coaching staff shows a deep care for the student athletes. However, with recent athletic success, it seems more focus on winning and less priority as to what is in students' best interest has become evident. A Christian education is strong focus at this school. As a parent, I would encourage those looking at placing their child at this school to investigate the religious beliefs to be sure that they will be a good "fit" for your child/family. If so, then Ft. Worth Christian can make an incredible difference in your child's educational experience!
This is a great place to be. There is such a family feeling and the teachers are excellent. My three children have been nurtured, educated, and disciplined fairly. They have Bible classes daily and they have a devotional time or "chapel" every day in their building with all the other students. They also have the opportunity to go on wonderful class trips and they have several choices of mission trips in the high school. I have had two of children graduate with several college hours too. My husband and I just love it!
A great warm, welcoming staff but beware of the "nickle and diming". At first glance you'll think their tuition prices are considerably less, but once you do the math on all the added fees you'll find otherwise. Also, they have been around since the 50's, they are a christian school - where is the CHAPEL?! Considering the new families pay a $1500 "campus enhancement" fee this should have been a priority a LONG time ago! Great school, but no excuse for this!
This is the second year for my two sons, one an 'HONORS' middle school and one a freshman in the high school. I would rate FWC above the area schools. The academics are above average and the administration, staff and faculty seem dedicated to the students. I am disappointed at the miniscule level of diversity among the faculty and student body. Otherwise, a generally positive experience for my sons and I would recommend FWC with a caveat.
As a current attending student at fwc, i can honestly say that i LOVE this school. I came last year as an 8th grader and at first i didn't like it because i was not willing to adapt, but now that i'm used to it, it's the best thing that has ever happened to me! All of my teachers are awesome (with the exception of one) and totally devoted to their jobs. The atheletics are awesome and the amount of fans that support our school at sporting events is great!
Excellent school with 5-star sports and overly efficient academics, it tops any other school in the area.
well some of the teachers are nice. there are a few kinks. just be good and youll make it through awesomly!!!!!!!!!! o and the scool trips r awesome
I have 4 children at Fort Worth Christian School. We have been there since my oldest, who is now an 8th grader, was in Pre-K. I can not say enough great things about FWC. The teachers, staff and administration genuinely care about the students. This school offers wonderful athletic, academic, and fine arts programs as well as Bible and chapel daily. There is a brand new Science and Technology Building that will house High School Science Labs as well as Computer Technology classes. The teachers provide great academics as well as a loving Christian environment for the children. I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in private education for their children.
Unfortunately, I am not able to recommend FWC School. Our son attended two years adn three quater years there. It got SOOO bad we withdrew him three-quarter way thru the second year. I routinely saw favoritism toward students of faculty and administrative persons. There was no grace given children and very little, if any support from the administration when we experienced problems with a teacher.
My son is a current student at FWC and I absolutely loved that he was recommended not for first grade right out of K but for D-1 (developmental first). Mrs. Chapman is the only D1 teacher and is just a blessing to these children. He was ready mentally but not socially/emotionally. I love their computer skills classes and am nothing but impressed with their staff. There are lots of opportunities to plug in at FWC for the parents and they are always welcome. The only thing that I would even consider a drawback from an education at FWC is that there are just so many things that seem to come up that just nickel and dime you to death. But that s such a small blemish on an otherwise spotless school.
I must say that FWC works very hard to develop the children in spirit and the teaching of the bible through daily chapel, a regimented Bible Class and prayer/devotional time.
Fort Worth Christian is a great school with several pre-AP and AP courses availible in the high school. The sports teams are fairly good, compared to the small school size and there are good theater and art programs. The level of parent involvement is huge, and the christian enviroment is wonderful for any age.
This is one of the best schools i have been to since elementary. I promise if you send your children here they will love it and you will to.
