First Presbyterian Church School Ratings & Reviews

September 23, 2016 Submitted by a parent
This is our fifth year at First Presbyterian Church School and we are thrilled with the quality of education, loving and sharp teachers, supportive family community, visionary leadership, challenging and well-rounded curriculum, and character development. Our child is not only learning facts and the standard elementary course of learning, but is also learning how to study, how to think (not just what to think), the importance of character, and the interconnectedness of all that he is learning. We couldn't ask for a better school for our child. We are now huge fans of the classical Christian model of education and would recommend the school to any family looking for a liberal arts-based, faith-centered education for their child. We're excited for what's in store for the school in its next season!

"My children have attended First Presbyterian Church School for 10 years - there is not one other school that I would ever consider! Our school may be little - but it is mighty in the power of education and in the strength it provides for children, and their parents! I can feel secure in sending my child to a school where they are safe - emotionally, physically, and mentally. I know that they are being treated with kindness, respect, and that my values are not only respected but encouraged! My children excell in all areas of educational focus - from mathmatics to history to reading I can feel secure in knowing that when they graduate and leave FPCS they will be ahead academically. Private school is not for everyone - if someone desires to simply drop their child off and not ""deal"" with the education of their child, or the situations that may arise for them, this is not the place for them! It is for individuals interested in participating in the education of their children, interested in participating in the growth of their children, and invested in their growth, development, and accountability."

This is a wonderful school community with great teachers and a head of school who actually understands what a christian classical education entails. I think the people who are unhappy with the changes should actually figure out why they have their child at a classical school if they do not agree with the classical curriculum or methods of learning. When I have met with the new head of school, he has been more than happy to engage in conversation and answer questions or address concerns. The teachers I have spoken to have also shared how they feel supported by and confident in the new head of school after previous years of this not being the case. My children are loved and cared for by their teachers who really pass on the joy of learning. Choosing a school can be so hard, but we are glad we chose FPCS.

FPCS is a strong academic school that offers an excellent classical education to students from 18 months old through 5th grade. Elementary students engage in learning with an Art, Music, and Latin Specialist. As a staff member, I am blessed and proud to work here. And as a parent, I couldn't ask for a better education and loving environment for my daughter.

It is tragic to see this once prominent private school going in such a horrific direction. The new Headmaster is unengaged and way out of his league. You can see the results as the teachers grow more disenfranchised and the parents and students more frustrated. The new cirucculum has no continuity from year to year and is based on learn, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Lot's of parents opting out for next school year. Very sad as most of the teachers are super amazing people who truly love and care for each child in their class. Hoping the School Board will step in before it is too late.
