    "Happy Kids! That's what I see at Friendship Christian School. Our children started at FCS three years ago. They have found that the teachers are engaged, enthusiastic and really care about them. We have been pleased with their academics, their athletics, their arts program and spiritual programs. Most of all we notice that the children seem happy. Our children are constantly encouraged to do their best. Their reading has increased and the have become more self-starters with their work. I recommend our school all the time to families looking for something special for their children. I would encourage those interested to contact Mrs.Terresia Williams - she was great to get us started and answer all of our questions. I know that they also have students shadow for a day which I believe will help them see the culture and if it would be a good fit."

    "Parents of 2 Children at Friendship. My kids started as Pre-K kids. It was obvious early that my kids would have hefty amounts of homework even at an early age. This continued until the day we pulled both of them out 6 and 7 years later. It seems that there was a lack of quality teaching at FCS. My kids would have to teach themselves through their homework sometimes 3-4 hours a night. If a student gets behind, the staff pretty much abandons the child. The school is extremely cliquey. Lebanon home grown kids are preferred. Financial problems are common. Athletics is a "mask" for the school. Athletics is what drives the school. It pretty much is all that matters. If you where to take athletics out of FCS the school would collapse under its own weight of poor academics."

    "We've been very happy with Friendship so far. My son is from Sumner County and has been accepted well. He continues to tell me that the "drama" that goes on in his public school (a large Middle School in Sumner County) is not present at Friendship and it feels like a family. You may disagree but these are his own opinions and he's a student, happy and growing, so that's what matters to me. The discipline is tougher and there are stricter rules, but that is to be expected."

    "This school in no way prepares their students for life beyond. While Christianity is an emphasis here, it is used to mask the sub par teaching and preparedness. Our child attended for five years. In the middle of the three years she had the same teacher, who happened to be outstanding (and has since left the school). Had it not been for this teacher, we would have left long ago. The school is very clique"ish", and the students VERY unwilling to accept those not born and raised in Lebanon. As others have said, the school, while "non-denominational" is very rooted in the Church of Christ, and the school is not in the least sense ecumenical. Save your child, drive 15 minutes up the road to the private school in Gallatin. Your child will be prepared for their future instead of being stuck in mediocrity."

    "I have been going to friendship for 8 years (since kindergarten) and I truly beleive it has ruined my childhood. I just started playing a sport 2 years ago and finally started fitting in. Before that I was an artist and singer and that got me shunned and hated. They are a bunch of snotty cliques and rude paranas out there in that school. I will strongly advise you NOT to come here if you are class of 2017."
