A very difficult school administration to deal with, the school board is not easy to work with when parents bring issues to the meetings. It is condesending and lip service at best. The Regional profiency score are low and have been on that trend. I am not very plased with the academics at this school.
My daughter has been going here for two years. We have had a great experience so far. They seem to be a little picky on the tardy issue. My daughter is often a minute or so late, and they make way to big a deal out of it, but that is my only complaint so far. Teachers have been great.
The education at the school is marginally at best. My children struggled when they entered middle and high school. They were not well prepared at the 5th and 6th grade level. It was one "big party" with filed trips and funny story times. Many parents complained to the school admin and district admin, but we were ignored. Bullying is not addressed and the school board consist of castrated leadership. Be read to spend a lot of time with your child when they enter Middle and High. They will require the attention or end up getting frustrated and falling hopelessly behind. Regrettably this has gone on for so many years that the communtiy has generation of unprepared adult out there. So sad for a once nice little school.
Somewhat disappointed in the quality of this school as there have been significant student bullying with racial and relgious prejudice. The adminstration and school board seem unprepared to work through and handle in a professional manner. Numerous families have pulled their children due to these issues over the past three years. To bad for what was once a quiet country school
Both of my children went to this school and found it to be a good experience and foundation for the years ahead.
I am so pleased with the quality of education my son is receiving. His teachers are incredible, the principal is compassionate and responsive and the lunch program is the best in the state. I don't know of a school I would rather have my son at than FCS. He is reading beyond his grade level and is excited about it. Science and math are fascinating to him and he is thrilled about the learning process. His teachers have him hooked! He is able to participate in everything from sports, music and theatre to knitting as well. Many parents volunteer their time and that manifests itself in many ways. FCS kids see their parents engaged in the educational process along with teachers and administrators. What a committment to quality! FCS rocks!
