School Notes

The First United Methodist Christian school staff is highly trained and qualified and provides a loving environment and education with a heart for Christ. We are accredited through ACSI. We view the school as a partnership with the home in the God-commissioned responsibility of teaching children. We believe that a superior program for young children views them as “whole persons”.  Our school provides an active, challenging environment under the leadership of loving, dedicated, well-qualified Christian instructors. 

WE PROMISE TO:

  • Support the family and help parents in the crucial years of child rearing. 
  • Provide an example of the highest qualities of Christian faith.
  • Support children through the best  practices within the educational arena. We will help the child reach  their highest potential in physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual growth.

The Teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. The school campus is beautiful, especially the new library. I highly recommend this school, my daughter has attended this school for four years now and I am very impressed with the results.
