My wife and I are both alumni as well has having sent our two children through FBCS from kindergarten to graduation. If you are looking for a solid core education (reading, writing, arithmetic), along with a solid Christian education, this is your school. Your students can have a great educational experience including sports, music and more. My daughter played volleyball from 7th grade through high school which included a trip to the MSHSL tournament one year. The facilities are excellent, the location being convenient to those in the western suburbs of Minneapolis.

I have four children in school here, in elementary school and junior high. Wouldn't want them to go anywhere else! Love the teachers, the curriculum is challenging, and my children are developing a biblical world view. My children are involved in the sports and fine arts programs as well. Great facility, great school!

I go to this school and love it! I play clarinet, handbells, and I sing in choir. In fourth grade you can sing in choir, and in fifth grade you can play in band and you play handchimes until seventh grade.
