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.

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
