My son loves this school! He is already looking forward to 6th grade next year. He really enjoyed soccer, basketball, choir, acting and now track this year. Coach Broadwell is our favorite! The parent teacher fellowship has had many activities to enjoy as well! Ms. Chapman, the principal, is amazing! She delivers discipline with love and ensures the academic standards are high. Class sizes are small and children get the attention they need.

I am a parent of a 5th grader at Firewheel Christian Academy. I love this school! The focus on academics and small class size really make this school shine. The teachers are caring and the parents support what they are doing. The Christmas pagent was so much fun! If you are looking for small class sizes and a Faith based education you can't go wrong here!
