I was very disappointed with the quality of the summer camp program that my kids attended. The program seemed to lack some fundamentals such as adequate supervision and the administration seemed to be quite disorganized. I was working there at the same time and got an inside view of things. I would definitely not send my children here.
There is absolutely no response to bullies. Children are allowed to continue demonstrating distructive behavior towards other classmates as long as they have the right parent connections.
I have two children and CFFS and will continue to keep them at the school. The past few years we have seen great improvement with the school, parental involvement, community outreach, and staff training. Congratulations on your ACSI Accreditation and we welcome all of the Faith Families.
We have found CF & FS to be a strong Biblically based school in an environment where political correctness reigns supreme. The new principal is awesome, respectful and truly a man seeking to honor God at the school. CF& FS is the new name now that CFS consolidated with another Christian school. Everyone is professional and loves the Lord. The school is the only Christian school in this area accredited by ACSI. We love CF &FS!
Our child will not be attending CFS next year. The amount and severity of discipline problems at the middle/high school levels is astounding. The principal support is great, but inconsistencies exist between classroom rules and consequences. Conflict of philosophy of education between headmaster and staff and parents has encouraged strife and division.
At one point we had two kids at CFS. We pulled out our oldest after a few years because we thought that she would get a better education at the public school, and save money. We were wrong. While our public school system spends almost twice what CFS spends per student, she felt like she was on vacation for the entire year (it was a review of the material she had covered the prior year at CFS). It's been a few years now and the public school has become challenging but I also notice problems with the Nike_factor, and other peer related issues. We tried the same thing with our younger child except the difference in the public school was even more noticeable. It was a complete waste of one year. We immediately re-enrolled her in CFS the following year and intend to keep her there.
I have two children at CFS and we have had a wonderful experience there. The teachers have gone out of their way to help my kids excel, especially in areas where they struggle. I only have dealt with the preschool and elementary teachers, and hope to have my kids graduate from here!
Among the staff at CFS, there is a definite lack of the commitment needed to develop a solid and growing high school program.
I have three children in this school. They have spanned from preschool to middle school. Two of my children are excelling academically. One is struggling and has been given more personal help than I could ask for. My oldest came from public school in third grade and was behind when she entered CFS. She is now on A honor roll. THe teachers are wonderful and each year the school gets better.
We pulled our our oldest child and may be pulling our other children from CFS. We believe the discipline to be more of a punishment with children as young as 5 serving detention. The principal is rude and does not return phone calls once you have a disagreement with her. She rolls her eyes and shows great disrespect for parents and other staff, yet demands almost perfect behavior from the students. The role modeling of staff is poor for a Christian school.
We have not had a good experience with Christian Fellowship School. While there are some wonderful and caring teachers at the school, the administration does not seem to have a handle on the situation. The environment is very strict and yet there are more behavior problems than we were accustomed to seeing at our previous school. The workload is excessive and stressful, especially for the middle and high school students. While the rules are very strict, there are still numerous behavior problems. I cannot recommend this school.
Christian Fellowship has very good facilities, including an oustanding gymnasium. The sports programs seem to be good and have good coaches. Special cudos to the girls basketball coach. They have just changed administration. Under the previous administration, there was a fair bit of disorganization. We are hoping for an improvement, but only time will tell. We are hoping that this improvement will include the development of a solid high school program for our children as well. Last year the math program for the junior high was weak. They have put some things in place to correct this. Again, time will tell. This is a school that seems to have a terrific elementary and pre-school program, a decent middle school program with particular strength in science and history and lots of potential for a truiy good high school.
While CFS gives you the personal interaction with the teachers and staff, it completely shelters you from the world and doesn't give you a realistic view of what's beyond Christian Fellowship.
Definitly the school to check out for High School! College prep - goal of an Associate's Degree upon graduation from 12th grade. Very progressive - great school!
