We have two recent graduates and one current HS student. (All attended K-12) We have been very pleased with the school and especially the teachers and environment. They provide a great education with a Christian World View. Both of our girls graduated with 24 hours of dual credit college hours. The new HS on James Island is great!

I have three children that attend FBS. I could not be happier being a part of the First Baptist family. I know that my children are receiving a quality education, have caring teachers and administration that cares about bullying. The arts and athletics are top notch. We are very happy with FBS!
