School Reviews

This school was a perfect fit for our son. He's a bright kid but he was struggling in the traditional school, barely passing. But the teachers at FCTS have had an amazing impact on him. His grades freshman year gave him something to brag about, but more importantly we noticed how much his (academic) self-confidence was restored. He's excited about school again having gained a passion for his chosen trade.
