After transferring our two children to Friends School (Lakeview campus) after three years at another private school, I have to say that Friends truly is a special place.

I had children attend this school and they were prepared "morally" to enter the real world. Academically speaking, they were a little behind what the children were being taught in other local schools. This would be a great school in all areas if they could bring their academic programs up to par.

I have 2 children currently enrolled in the FCS system, (one at the Lakeview campus and one at the Rose Drive campus) and couldn't be more pleased with the challenging curriculum, positive and safe environment, encouraging and supportive faculty & staff and involved administration. I feel truly blessed
... Read more that the Lord led our family to this amazing school. I am impressed with the "Meet the Masters" program, which teaches students about all kinds of art, such as Impressionism, along with detailed biographies about the artists...in fact, I often learn quite a bit about artists such as Matisse, Renoir, Kahlo, Monet, Picasso, Degas, and countless more through my children, which makes me a very proud parent! Not only do I appreciate the wonderfully eclectic and stimulating courses offered at FCS; but more importantly, the Christian curriculum goes beyond Bible classes and chapel, it is displayed through the teachers, who genuinely love to teach and strive to help the students succeed and to learn more about what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Also, students are taught to respect one another, help and encourage each other; open communication is key! Love FCS! Read less

I was very disappointed when I read the mission statement for this school. Their mission statement states that this school is against homosexuality and believes it is wrong.

Our son has been attending Friends Christian since the 4-year old program. The administration and teachers are very caring.

It is so evident that they love what they do.

We would recommend Friends Christian to anyone desiring a high quality education with a biblically sound emphasis. Read less

Read more re-vamped their Science, Math & Art programs, adding Honors Math and a more comprehensive Science program that begins in first grade and keeps the school current with public school programs. Weekly character traits are emphasized the entire school year. This contributes towards a more well-rounded, respectful child. The school does not cater to a specific religion - weekly bible verses and lesson plans are Bible-based (typically NIV version). There is a new art program for all grades, Honor Choir, and extracurricular sports at the Middle School level. Any type of parent involvement is welcomed and appreciated! Read less
