Forest Grove Christian Academy Reviews
We will be returning next year!
We just finished our first year at FGBC. I will admit it started out kind of rough. But the difference it has made is amazing. My grandson actually said "I hope you win this time" after winning four straight games the other day. He has compassion for others, his behavior, his respect and treatment of others has completely changed.
When you let your children and grandchildren be taught by people who are more concerned about a paycheck than your child, your child will always be the looser. Or if they are taught by a teacher who truly does care, but has a classroom with 24 children in it, your child will still loose. Not to mention the things he was picking up just from riding the bus with older kids!
I am so thankful for the teachers at FGBC, even the ones that didn't actually teach my grandson's class. They all had a part in molding him this year. I can't wait to see what next year brings.
We love this school. The teachers and staff are excellent.
It is truly apparent how important our children and their education is to this staff. They love the Lord, they love our children and our families, and are always concerned about engaging our children to want to learn.
Parents must heed Paul’s warning not to be “taken captive through philosophy and empty deceit based on human tradition”. One must get the facts prior to making negative reviews. Principal & some of staff members resigned to start own agenda in order not to be accountable to basic church teachings. No consideration given to children prior to selection of announcement.
Was a great school untill they fired the principal and staff members. My children cried for days. FGCA was amazing and the ruined the best thing that had happened to my children !!! Be aware of FGCA!! I would not send my kids back there after what the church did to the school and principal They should be embarressed to have destroyed a great thing and run off a great man
They left my 6 year old daughter and 4 other young children in a running, unlocked vehicle while the teacher went into the gas station to get drinks. I may be a little over protective at times, but I feel this is irresponsible on the part of the teacher and the administration that allow this type of thing to happen. My children don't go to school there, but they "were" signed up for their summer camp program. I was very disappointed that an adult who is caring for other people's children could be that careless.
It is a great alternative to the public school system. The principal James Schrader is second to none. If you want a school that cares about your child, then check out Forest Grove Christian Academy.
The previous reviewer must have had some specific incident that set them off. My child is new there, but I've not had any issues. It's much better than the public alternative.
It is the worst "Christian" school that is open today! They should do the state of Florida a service and close its doors for good.
