Fallbrook College Preparatory Academy2

I LOVE FALLBROOK I needed to say this so people can understand that to write this I m deeply saddened. My Daughter went from Fallbrook Christian Academy to Prep. We were excited! Since we first went to Fallbrook (church that is) in 2010, I knew I wanted my Daughter to go here. My plan to make this her academic home from K-12 is gone. This Teachers Hands down have the biggest hearts and integrity as teachers.... They are the epitome of GOOD Teachers" However, they can t do it by themselves; The Administration staff is the issue. Again I LOVE FALLBROOK- Church, school, all of that. As it was so bluntly/disrespectfully put. It is a starter school that has to work out kinks" "which means it will not be for everybody" If I am so loyal to Fallbrook, then if it s not for me" then who is it for? The kinks that the school needs to work on are not things that will be rectified through time. The problem is the attitude and arrogance of the Administration staff AND HIGHER! The PTO ( which yes I am apart of) has tried so many times to lend the hand, take the burden off of these OVER WORKED, UNDER APPRECIATED, UNDER VALUED TEACHERS. Administration foolishly says no.
Fallbrook is getting better... I've been hearing about them changing up this year, I gave Fallbrook another chance, and my daughter loves it. I like how the teachers are very nice. I also like how there is a person that will talk to you, if there is a question or problem. Now, I know there are also the kids in Fallbrook, but people have to get past that. They are getting better, besides if the kids get out of hand; they will deal with it.
I love Fallbrook! The administrative team were very courteous and communicated very well. My kids teachers were timely when I needed to meet or speak with them. I will be sending my students back to Fallbrook again in the fall and am looking for even a greater year!
FCPA needs more organization. My son had a total of 4 teachers throughout the year. I believe the staff should work on their staffing needs before the school year begins. Students should not have to wonder who their instructors will be when they return to school the next week.
My kids have attended FCPA since the program started, I love it and so does my children. Sure there are areas that need improvements but that's to be expected with a new program. I see the vision this school has for our children and this community and I'm happy and excited to be apart of it. Anyone with false expectations or is unhappy with the school should consider another school for your child. My family looking forward to 2014-2015 school year...Go Eagles!!!
My Son attends Fallbrook Prep and he is in Kindergarten. He was not reading when he entered Kinder and now he reads at about a 3rd grade level. His Math skills are about a 2nd grade level. His vocabulary is above average of your typical 6 year old. I have no complaints about his Teacher nor the curriculm. His teacher constantly stays in touch with me and if she has a problem she will email me or send home a note. What I do have a problem with is the expensive school uniforms and the lack of communitcation from the administrators. Maybe it's not lack of, it's late communication. You will get a message/email the day before or even the morning of not giving you time to prepare accordingly. They seem rather unorganized in that area. The uniforms...$15 for a tie, $20 for a t-shirt, $30 for a shirt, $35 for pants, and $75 for a blazer! The blazer is what kills me the most because they take them off and leave them laying around and you can't have a 5 year understand the concept of "expensive" and "responsibility" just yet. Luckily, we've made it the year with blazer still in hand after about only 3 trips to lost and found which is another joke!
This school is overall thumbs down!! Promise s made not kept the school is full of lies and nothing positive to really say!! My son hasn't had a solid teacher since school began its nothing nice at all!! He was on teacher #5 before the school year was over and I highly doubt they get one to stay! Expensive uniforms all for looks education wise no sir no ma'am!!! The teacher well my daughter teacher is OK older lady pretty nice. If you are looking for a good school you may as well stay in public school environment, this is not it!!!
The school doesn't keep any promise. Getting teachers and administrators to return emails and calls are virtually impossible. My child has had so many teachers that I can't keep track of them and I only met two of them. Homework is so scarce that I don't know what my child is working on. I have been asking for two months for online access to grades and as of today, I still haven't received access. At one time, they couldn't find my child in the system. I had high hopes for this school, but they have let me down. Now I have all these expensive uniforms which will be of no use to my child because I refuse to allow her to attend there next year. This school year has been a waste.
I'm very pleased with new superintendent. I'm so surprise, embarrassed how people certain people just like confusion. Fallbrook is an awesome prep school with caring teachers. I don't understand if someone is unhappy just pull your kid. But to constantly have something bad to say and keep your child in the school is just so wrong. This school is making a difference in the community. The one person that say no books, I know students have books. The school is not doing anything wrong.
