    This school is God's plan to provide HIS best for our children. I have been a parent in this school for over twenty years supporting three children through their educational journey and I can testify that all of my children have received a top rate education.

    THERE IS "NONE LIKE US" -- no FTH is not perfect but we LOVE GOD! My son started K3 is now in 5th grade. Heis on the "A" Honor Roll every semester! He has a "STRONG" academic foundation that is going to carry him a long way; more so than any sport can and he loves sports. That is why he played community sports. If you feel your child should be a SPORTS STAR and NOT EXCEL ACADEMICALLY I feel sorry for you and your child. And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children (ISAIAH 53 3) Sports should be secondary to your child's relationship w/God well-being and academics! Take more pride in your child then to make him/her sports robot subjecting them to ills of this world. I pray GOD will change the hearts and minds of those parents who would prefer their child be a "sports enthusiatic" and not academically sound. Yes many have left for that reason but you know I see many returning to the School's Open House! BTW FTH now has basketball flag football soccer and cheerleading.

    My children attended FTHCS and at that time the school was full with approx 400 or more students. I and others pulled our children out for many different reasons --- read the early reviews. The enrollment went down to approx 100 or so children. I am not saying this is a bad school but there were issues. Not sure what the school is like today but you got to investigate and ask questions and if for any reason the answers are not be shared with you --- take a hint and move on.

    I think this is a great school with a great mission. To teach Christian children about the Lord and his word. They also give a all around education so that the students will be productive members of society.

    I love that school because of the Christian values it passes along to the children enrolled there as well as the love that is shown to the children. My niece graduated from there and the school helped to build onto the foundation that was instilled in her by her parents.
