    My daughter has attened this school for Kinder - 2nd grade. School has good points and bad. Class sizes are small (15 per class on average) but the grades are split. 1st &2nd are together and 3rd & 4th are together. Teachers care about their studens and parents involement is always welcomed. Principal and Teachers are very open with parents and truely care. I ranked the teacher quality a little low only because the classes are spilt. While the class size is small the teachers time is split between teaching two different grades. Truely love this school and the people that have encouraged my child to grow.

    I have 3 children who have attended FSCS. I am very greatful for their love and support. My children are academically on top and I owe all the credit to the GREAT teachers at FSCS!! Mrs. Burger is a wonderful principal! My family and I praise God for good caring and loving teachers.

    My son attended this school for 4 years. He had wonderful teachers from preschool up to 2nd grade. However the third grade teacher basically neglected my son all the time. One time my son was insulted by other students. He reported this insult to the teacher but she just neglected him as usually. My son was very upset and went ahead to discipline the students who insulted him. Ironically the instigators in this even were left unpunished and my son was locked in the Lib. Moreover my son was suspended from school. She the school board and the administrator falsely accused my son to be a violent child. Neither she nor the administrator nor the school board could ever name a single instance in which my son violently attacked or assaulted other children. How could those so called Christians gangster up to against a 8 year old powerless and defenseless child? What the school did to my son caused enormous amount of stress to my son and my family.

    I have three children in this school and I am more than satisfied! After struggling with my oldest in TUSD we transferred him and he is now a happy devoted student. The staff is like family they really do want to see you and your child succeed!!

    My boys went to FCSC for pre-school and then into public school for kinder and first-grade. I put them back in FCSC this year and have to say there is a tremendous difference! Not only do they get a top-nothc education with a low teacher to student ratio but they get a Heart education as well. The administrators teachers and staff are the best...hands down!

    I have a child in 3rd grade and in preschool. Student to teacher ratio cannot be beat. I wish I would have brought my son here sooner. He loves the school and the teachers.

    Great school from the teachers/principal to the other students. I would not take my child anywhere else.

    An excellent school. My child's entire 3rd grade class out performed TUSD public school 3rd graders by 2 grade levels. Safety with security is a must at FSCS.
