Frederick Classical Charter School

- Frederick County Public Schools, MD
Parent: FCCS is an academically rigorous environment that sets high standards for each student. It instills the awareness of virtues and uses this framework to build character. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working. The school building and location are lacking and it's shame that this excellent classical school doesn't have something better. The outdoor playground is like a prison yard and being in an industrial business park makes you wonder who is working in and around very close proximity to your cildren? Fortunately the academics and teachers make up for the logistical shortcomings. Finally, if you are not up for an environment that puts academics first, and you want sports or after school activities, this is not the school for you. Here, As a parent, you'll also recognize your young children are capable of so much more. This school is serious about education and somehow instills in children a genuine hunger for learning.

Alum: I loved my experience at GFS! I was there from 6th-12th grade and grew a lot with my class. As a Black girl on campus, it was hard at times to fit in and even feel included as time went on. With their new director on Diversity and Inclusion, they are making strides on changing the campus culture. Being at the school for so long, my identity as a POC was altered by the majority white students on campus. It was hard to regain my identity, but I am successfully doing so as a college student and alumna who visits GFS often. If you're interested in the school, go and take a tour. Make the decision as a family and if you ever get the feeling something isn't right, go to a trusted teacher, counselor, principal, or director of Diversity and Inclusion.
