Florence Christian School Reviews

Florence Christian is a good school for someone looking for a strictly biblical education. The faculty can be biased at times to the people or students who attend the church. The teachers are not always great, they will only hire people who attend the church. College readiness is not good. The courses do not work well to prepare the student for college, especially in math (not including accelerated) and Spanish. There are a lot of extracurricular activities and sports to choose from and the coaches and teachers work hard to get everyone involved. Safety has gotten much better recently with the addition of security cameras. Bullying is also very rare at the school in my experience, the students are encouraged to work together and be kind through classroom experiences and chapels.

Florence Christian over my years has been on the upward climb into becoming a powerhouse in sports and academics. With multiple state championships in sports and clubs. Florence Christian has given me an education that has challenged me to think. The teachers at FCS really care and love the students and help them to succeed. Students are encouraged to form a world view (Christian usually but just to have one that one can support) and be able to logically standby it. the administration seems to not respect any club or team that does not involve a ball. Programs like student government, and debate have not received the well deserved resources, respect, and support from the administration. Sometimes the BJU books sacrifice truth to follow their rhetoric or points. FCS does however, have the best diversity, college preparation, safety, facilities, school culture in all of SCISA.
I love the teachers at FCS; they do a great job. The source material is alright; it's BJU Press. I wish there was training in how to use school
technology! Neither the students nor the teachers feet
it! Ithink the dress code could be revised a bit
