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.
