FBCS is a small Christian learning community and we embrace this philosophy.
We believe this is the best way to build the proper foundation for our 2 year olds through 8th grade students.
This enables us to create an environment where each child is known and loved by so many, which allows each child a comfortable place to learn and grow up.
