My son has been going to FLS since VPK, he is now in 1st grade, I'm so thankful that he is able to go to this school, I love the small class sizes, the teachers are just wonderful, if you're looking for a well-rounded school then I recommend calling FLS. You won't be disappointed.

My son has attended FLS since 3rd grade (he is now in 6th), and it has been the Best! The teachers and staff are caring and involved. The curriculum is well rounded. My son has thrived since attending there. I would highly recommend FLS to any parent looking for a solid education for their child in a nurturing environment. Go Flames! :)
