School Reviews

FBS is a great school for children in any grade. There is a strong emphasis on Christian education where kids are taught to not be afraid to share their faith in Christ. Academics are top notch and this is proven by the higher than average basic assessment skills test results. If your looking for a great education and an affordable price, (FBS tuition is much lower than other Christian schools) then this is your place to be!
