This school is amazing! My child's scores have increased, and she is being taught not only how to improve academically but how to make better decisions in life. No school is perfect but the admin team in place is one of the best anywhere. I am thankful for their leadership, kindness and love for our family. The teachers are caring and strive to raise the bar in academics. They teach strong Christian values as well. My child graduated from this school 2 years ago and now my youngest is set to graduate. I have been a part of this family many years. This is not a second chance school. This is a first choice school that holds students accountable.

Excellent School that has a lot to offer every child no matter the age. I love the community and programs this school has to offer. Moreover, they helped bring my student to America in only 2 weeks! Excellent well-educated staff that teaches from a Biblical perspective. Most, if not all, of the teachers have masters degrees and tons of experience. Love this place!

Great school! They have good qualified teachers that really work 1 on 1 with you. They have a great ESL program and offer good AP classes that you can take online. I looked at other schools in the area and FCS is a reasonably priced school with great education. Funny, my friend goes to a 40k a year school and my HS diploma has the same GCA stamp as his. I paid 1/4 his price and got a good quality education with the same standards. I 100% recommend this school. Every student learns another language, every teacher works hard to help you, its a good and safe environment. This college prep school is a jewel in north Atlanta.
