Terrible experience in Sparks. If your child has difficulty in areas go elsewhere. They are not equipped.

The administrators are weak and possess no back-bone to uphold policies and purity. They deal with inappropriate behaviors with a namby-pamby position and do nothing to discipline poor behavior. Students get away with bullying and sexual harassment. The course of study is not impressive and the counselor is ineffective. She has limited knowledge of what is truly needed from a collegiate standpoint and misguides the students. She simply holds her position because her parents have attended the church for years and paid to have the log cabin on campus refurbished so her office could be in it. She has been asked on multiple occasions to produce a written recommended course of study for high schoolers to follow, but after years of requests, it still isn't done. She is impatient with students and parents, alike. While the elementary is fairly effective, the middle and high school needs an overhaul. I recommend moving your child once they reach 7th grade to a campus that will encourage your student to grow in academia as well as in character.

Our daughter started FACS in JrK. Started out fine, but has gradually gotten worse and worse. The teachers are below average. Some don't even have teaching degrees or licenses. The school is run by the church so if one attends church there, they are pretty much guaranteed a job, qualified or not. Doesn't matter!! The administration is old and out of date and they need to retire but they won't be fired because most attend church there. And any children who attend church there or have parents who teach there are given far more opportunities than the rest of the children. This school has not helped my daughter with math, she needs extra attention and has never gotten it. Her dad has actually helped her more and taught her more at home!! Every year the tuition has gone up and the quality of education has gone down! And don't get me started on bullying. I've had two friends who had to pull a son and a daughter because they were being bullied so badly and nothing was done! Both children were on the brink of having a nervous breakdown or committing suicide!! We will be pulling our daughter after this year. I just wish we'd left sooner. Please don't send your children here!! No!! It may start off ok but I promise it gets worse and worse!!

My daughter was told by a classmate that she could not play with the other kids but she can clean-up after they are finished. My daughter was the ONLY Brown girl in the class. I spoke with the Teacher she tried to push it under the rug. The very next day, The Teacher sent home a note in Red telling me how my daughter's habits are horrible! I agreed with her that she does have some bad habits( I.e. Not putting her name on her paper) but the list she gave me was a bit much. I thought about it...she was trying to get me uncomfortable so I can move my child. She saw us as a problem because I told her about the little racism comment. My child is in the 2nd grade. There is no diversity at this school. I didn't see any Teachers that was of any other ethnicity than White. The only Black people I saw were cleaning the school! Maybe, that is why the little girl thought my daughter was in line to do the same. My oldest daughter attends Braircrest and her school is nothing like FACS! This is my experience at FACS. I am very disappointed, I had such high hopes!!

Unfortunately, some individuals find it necessary to slander FACS, and probably other schools as well. After sending our children to FACS for 11 years, I find many of the comments less than authentic, sometimes comical and definitely not based on facts. All of our children excel academically and our oldest child will be graduating with a 4.6 GPA. She will also be attending the university of her choice with a full academic scholarship. As a whole, the staff is exceptional and the Christ like environment is tremendous. The "in crowd" at FACS is thankfully the Jesus crowd. Some individuals will always find something to complain about but the facts speak for themselves. FACS offers a superb learning environment!!!
