First Woodway Christian School, a ministry of First Baptist Church of Woodway, opened as a preschool for three and four year-olds in 1993.
Since that time we have added Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
FWCS currently has a projected enrollment of 240+ students for 2013-2014 .
The curriculum at FWCS is Christ-centered and challenging.
We want your child to be able to think creatively, develop good study habits, solve problems, and develop good language skills.
This is accomplished through selecting the best instructional materials available from secular and Christian publishers to reach our overall goals.
