School Reviews

4   10/27/2023
This school is K through 8th grade. Very safe, secure campus, dress code, kindness, and no bullying. There is no drug, vape or tobacco brought into the school by students. FCS stayed open during COVID! So the students did not lose a year of learning like other schools. Art is incorporated into the curriculum. Longer school day, year and length of math and English language classes.
