First Baptist Christian School Reviews

CULTURE: They adhere to rules first atmosphere. The word "Obey" is constantly used to describe expected behavior & blind obedience is the main goal, not mutual respect. It's very much "Rules for rule's sake." The teacher had 1 method to "deal" with children & wouldn't adapt to get better results. The school would call for the smallest issue instead of handling it themselves. Also the code of conduct was inconsistent & confusing to our student. ACADEMICS: Curriculum is rigorous & taxing, more so than most public schools. It's not necessarily a bad thing; however, the entire curriculum is faith based & a bit much for a 6 yr old. Memorizing/quoting scripture about coveting neighbor's wife or ox seemed heavy for 6. Our daughter sounded like a mindless robot reciting verses. The school lacks a creative learning environment. Instead, classes line pupils desks with a"Preacher"up front. I had hoped that we evolved past these archaic ways of learning. I do not recommend the school to anyone.

Excellent quality education!!! This is my daughter’s second year attending First Baptist and I wouldn’t trust her growth and education to anyone else. Most of the teachers and the Principal are dedicated to the students and want to see them succeed. My daughter previously attended a private school for elementary school and public school (in Slidell) for middle school. The public school school experience was the worst ever and felt I had to remove her from that environment to save her life... literally. She is thriving at First Baptist. She makes mistakes as any teenager would, but the rules are appropriate for the offense. Also, the school is open to creating a diverse student body. I think the school experience is what you put into it. Great job First Baptist on educating our students and teaching them to grow spiritually.
I have had four children graduate from this school, after starting in 1st grade. Three of my children received full or partial scholarships and academic awards that allowed them to go to college. The school is not perfect, but there is a general consensus to achieve academic excellence and to develop the whole child. If you are looking for an environment that encourages community, one where students are led to be their best and teachers and staff truly care about the students and their families, this is where you need to go.
