School Reviews

We have a rambunctious 8 year old boy who has attended Faith since K-4. Every single teacher he has had managed to inspire him to achieve good grades including A+ conduct. They have all been loving and nurturing and have helped to develop his love for Christ. We couldn`t be any more please with the value of education he is receiving.
