If you have ever had a child in public school, you understand how challenging it can be. Not only can it be difficult to keep up with the Common Core curriculum, but as Christian parents, it's very hard to help your child maintain his "moral compass" during those years.
All too often, kids in public school come home with brand new words they learned from their peers. Not only that, but they also spend a significant amount of time learning the behaviors of other children that they see modeled for them every day. If your family has always upheld a strict "no hitting" policy, and your son or daughter comes home one day thinking that hitting is a good solution when there's a problem with a sibling...well, let's just say it's difficult to re-teach them what your family believes about that type of behavior.
The importance of preserving family values is one of the main reasons many parents choose to send their children to a private or Christian school. Public schools are very large, and the number of teachers and teacher's aides available is very small. It's difficult for teachers to keep a close eye on everything that's happening, and children who "tell" are often labeled as "snitches" and shunned by their peers.
Here at Foundations Christian School, we do things differently. Our students are taught what is expected of them from the very beginning. They understand that the values we hold here are exactly the same values their parents hold at home. Because of this, the atmosphere is pleasant, and extremely conducive to learning. It's our goal to support our parents in their efforts to mold their children into growing Christians, and it truly makes a difference when the transition from home to school is seamless.
