My grandson attends Firm Foundation Christian School. He is in 1st grade and is absolutely thriving. He started at this school in pre-k with some challenges. He is excelling. The teachers are great communicators, the academic curriculum is challenging, the Biblical foundation is solid, and the atmosphere is pleasant and organized. This was perhaps the best decision our family made with regard to educating the next generation. There is another grandson starting kindergarten there next year.

This is the sixth year our daughter will be attending Firm Foundation. We truly believe that we invest in her spiritual, physical, and emotional well being by enrolling her into this school. All of the teachers have been very willing to work with us and meet our daughter's special needs. Whether its our requests as parents or doctor's recommendations, the staff and teachers strive to help her succeed. Many of the staff know the students by name and build relationships with them. They pray for those who are in need and reach out to help when crisis strikes. We see that the teachers and staff at Firm Foundation truly pray for God's guidance in educating our children. They enjoy what they do and are good at it!

Our son began attending Firm Foundation Christian School in the 4th grade. He is in 8th grade now, and we have been very pleased with this school. From the start, we felt very welcome there and have seen that the quality of education is high. They have a pretty good lunch setup for a private school--several choices of hot items. Our son takes very interesting elective classes like: arts, cooking, robotics, computer tech, ceramics. We would recommend this school to anyone who wants their kids to get a great education and most importantly, learn in a safe environment. Just make an appointment to preview the school and you will not be disappointed.

My son is a first grader at Firm Foundation where he has been a student since preschool. The love the teachers have for their students is very genuine; you can just feel it in atmosphere of the school. Every teacher we`ve had has been a wonderful communicator and listener. They also encourage parents to be in the classroom as much as they want. My son has done very well academically and enjoys art, music, library, and computer in addition to his core subjects. This year we will be joining the schools soccer team.

Both my daughters go to Firm Foundation we have been there a while. The teachers invest in the students what can you say they hug them, pray for them and love them. Outside of that my kids do very well on state tests -very well +20 above nation average. I have one daughter who was having trouble and they went out of the way to help her. You do have to volunteer they want to keep the parents involved with the kids at school or you just pay the extra $200 if your a working parent. But you can like bake cookies for volunteer work to coaching the kids in sports.
