Middle school is great with Mr. Campbell but high school is lacking as they let him whoever can pay the bills with no regard to character. Have had 2 kids in the school and bullying is a problem that shouldnt be tolerated but is if you are child of a teacher or play football. So basically its no different than a public school with a big tuition bill.
There are new principals this year in each building. My children have been blessed by the middle school (Michael Campbell) and high school (Colin Madding) principals in the past as their teachers. They bring a fresh, renewed atmosphere for the students and teachers. You can feel the calm, peaceful, and happy attitudes when you walk in the buildings. The new positive re-enforcement for students behavior has changed the climate in just a few weeks. FWC is blessed to have these three new principals. If you are looking for a change from public school, now is a great time to make the move. Teachers are happy and students are happy!! Academics are accelerated at FWC, chapel is held daily and all students have Bible class daily. FWC is a great balance of academics, athletics and spiritual life for the students.
The leadership of the school is lacking. They do not care about the students, the school only cares about getting money. Bullying is a serious issue, and nothing is ever done. The teacher's kids are the worst behaved on campus.
This will be our 6th year at FWC and we are so excited about next year! Mr. Campbell is going to do great things as the new middle school principal. My older kids were blessed to have him as a teacher and chapel leader and I am confident he will be an amazing principal. Daily chapel is one of my favorite things about FWC. Knowing that my kids are going to take time every day to sing, pray, and hear a Bible lesson with their classmates is so special. Small class sizes and excellent teachers make learning easy and enjoyable. FWC is a place where you can truly personalize your experience. If you are looking for strong academics, there are AP, PAP and DC courses offered in every subject, if sports are your interest, our coaches encourage you to participate in any of the sports offered. The academic teams and fine arts department provide additional opportunities to use and improve your talents. You can do it all at FWC!
DON'T DO IT!!! We came here looking for a loving environment for our child and received nothing but negativity. Their demerit system in elementary school consists of only debits so if your child does something good then it goes completely unnoticed. Only bad behavior is recognized! Kids make mistakes but leaving a book in a locker is not "bad behavior" although that's what it is to these teachers. This school lost ALL 3 principals just this year and is replacing them with teachers from the staff who do not hold certifications to be a principal. Losing all 3 principals in one year should tell you to look elsewhere. There are some serious problems here! No accountability amongst teachers so they do whatever they want and make up the rules as they go along. Teachers do not work with the kids to help them get ahead - it's sink or swim. Your child will come home stressed out and belittled. Save your hard earned money and go elsewhere.
Both my children graduated from this school and had a wonderful experience. They have since finished college, where they were more than prepared academically. More importantly though, their faith was strengthened during their time at FWC. They also made life-long friends and cherished memories.
