Our son is in Kindergarten at FPCS and absolutely loves it. He is growing and learning so much. His teacher has kept me posted on his growth and areas of struggle, so that we can work together. The principal and teachers are readily available for questions and concerns. The level of volunteer involvement is truly impressive; parents are willing to give lots of hours to helping their children and the school thrive. My son was despondent over Christmas and Spring breaks because he did NOT get to go to school. Says a lot about the teacher and environment there. I don't know yet if we'll be able to send him to 1st grade there, but I'm praying we do. My daughter will also be attending pre-school in the fall. We wouldn't consider anywhere else for her.

we LOVE this school!! I had never considered a private school past preK but my daughter will be entering Kindergarten next year and I can't imagine having her any where else. The staff is amazing and the curriculum is well rounded and the kids and parents are all very nice. I can not think of one bad thing to say about the school!!

This school offers a well rounded, solid christian education. Standardized curriculum starting at preschool... this school offers so much more than "social time" like most other preschools... they completely prepare your child to enter into school.

Our daughter has been in preschool here for almost a year, and she has really blossomed. Our 3-year-old son will attend next fall.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
