FCDS is a truly wonderful school. Our son has attended for eight years, and grown into a thoughtful, compassionate, and aware little human. He is also exceeding our expectations when it comes to handling the challenging curriculum. I appreciate that the school is as rigorous about academics as it is about character education.

Our child has flourished since coming to FCDS. The JAC at FCDS offers one of the best tutoring/LD assistance in the country. We had been at another school that had a specialized accreditation in LD; in short our child lost about two years of learning. Since joining FCDS, our child has caught up to where they should be in their academics and is a straight A student. The staff members are without a doubt the very best at educating student, even those with a profound LD issues. If you are looking for a school that treat children with kindness, respect, and will have parents involved in their children's educations, then look no further than FCDS.
