Coming from being in public school from K-8th grade, I loved the smaller classroom settings. It was more personal, it helped me come out of my box and also helped me become much more comfortable talking with people in new settings and even public speaking.

I'm an Alumni and Christian Faith School taught me to push myself and work my butt off. It enabled me to be a year round athlete with a good sized Advanced Placement (AP) course load and be a part of student leadership which meant I had to work hard in order to be successful. I took these skills into the University of Washington, Seattle and use them for being a successful Midshipman with my ROTC unit there. At the University of Washington, I am a Marine ROTC Midshipman, a Residential Advisor, a Foster School of Business student, and a leader in the City Church community groups on campus. I use the work ethic I learned in the classrooms of CFS and on their sports teams to be successful with these blessings from God. CFS not only prepared me mentally and spiritually to take on my full-ride scholarship to the University of Washington, but also helped get me ready to be an officer in the United States Marine Corps.

CFS is not only committed to academic excellence and encouraging each student to be the best that they can be, but also nurturing each student's walk with Christ. We have been very pleased with our children's experience at CFS.

This is a top notch Christian School - where not only is the spiritual life strong, but so are the academics. The teachers are amazing and do anything they can to help each student succeed.

My daughter just started and has grown in the last month. I love to hear her sing songs that she has learned and show me what she has learned. At her age, one of the main goal in class is to instill love for learning - I think that is being achieved.

I enjoy working at (and sending my kids to) a school that not only requires students to excel academically, but also nurtures excellence in character.

Great to see a school challenge kids so they learn. Too many public schools are just trying to get the kids through.

Christian Faith School is an incredible organization dedicated to training up children mentally, intellectually, physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. All three of my daughters have flourished under the excellent teaching staff and the leadership of a stellar principal, Tom Puddy. I have never doubted our decision to invest in our children by sending them to Christian Faith Center.

My oldest daughter just graduated from CFS this year, and my youngest daughter is now in 8th grade. We LOVE this school. Their focus is on leadership training and growing strong and confident in the Word of God. You can find many schools with good academic programs, but we chose this school for not just for the education but also for the impartation. The class sizes are pretty small, so the kids really grow close friendships that last a lifetime. - I can say this because my husband and both of his brothers also attended and graduated from CFS! Highly highly recommended.

We have two primary age children attending CFS with another one close behind. We have really noticed how far ahead they are vs. their peers who attend other schools. We really appreciate the curriculum and outstanding teachers. Physical education is great and school athletic programs are growing every year with Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball and maybe even Golf soon. I'm continually impressed with the CFS students and love hearing about the scholarships offered to graduating seniors. I know CFS is one of the most diverse schools in the state and I also really appreciate how we are raising our kids in a "color blind" environment. We have made this a priority in our family and are looking forward to having all of our children attend from Preschool through High School Graduation. I can't think of a better foundation for their long term success in life.

Christian Faith School has been a blessing for my daughter - excellent academics, caring and excellent teachers, and a strong principal with a vision of overall excellence for his students- which he carries through with actions. The teaching of Christian principles daily makes this school the total package. The icing on the cake is that they REALLY care about their students!!!

There is great support among staff and families in bringing out the God given strengths and abilities in each student. I love the freedom to speak the truth of God's Word each day and to tell the students that God is for them and loves them.

We love CFS and the academic and spiritual growth that it gives to our children! Every year our child rates very high on the SAT ratings and it's all due to the high levels of academics taught at this school.

We've been really happy with the academic and Biblical foundation our child has received at Christian Faith School. Ongoing communication between parents and teachers/staff is welcomed and encouraged. Our child has a planner that is sent home every day, with his assignments listed and any notes on issues the teacher feels need to be addressed with us. That way, we can respond via planner, email, or set up a face-to-face meeting. Dropping by the classroom before or after school is also welcomed. Volunteering is encouraged, but is NOT mandatory. (Incentives are given to parents for meeting a certain number of volunteer hours if they are able to offer their time, like as chaperone on field trips or coming in and helping the teacher out in the classroom or with special events during the year.) The student body is made up of students from many different ethnic backgrounds, and there is also an international student program in place. Our child started here in preschool, and we plan to keep him in CFS until he graduates high school. We just cannot say enough good things about the school and the staff. We love the teachers and atmosphere at CFS! This is an awesome school!

This school has both a strong academic and a spiritual foundation. The leadership has a heart for God and emphasizes the importance of letting God's spirit participate in our lives on a daily basis. I love that my son and two daughters have had this influence in their lives.

I have children who currently attend CFS and one that graduated. I was an involved parent volunteer for years and now work for the school. I love what we provide in academics, spiritual growth, and total fitness. Our students from Kindergarten to 12th grade are getting the amazing opportunity to not only learn the basics of education, but also life lessons. We have brought into our school "The 7 habits of Highly Effective people" and Legacy Training "Biblical Blueprint for Sexual Integrity". No school is perfect. As a parent we desire the best for our kids and as a staff member I desire the best for each student. This truly is a great place for ordinary kids to become EXTRAORDINARY people!

I graduated from CFS in 2009, and I am still an active alumnus. This school prepared me in every area of my life to impact the world by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful that the administration and faculty of CFS came alongside my parents to train me in a godly way.

My 2 girls have attended Christian faith School for 8 years and they absolutely love it! the atmosphere is a safe atmosphere where children can focus on learning and not on surviving. the teachers are also excellent. they work one-on-one with the students. the atmosphere is very positive and the teachers and facility see the good in the students
