    "What A Huge Disappointment! One of the main reasons we moved here was because of the "great" public schools. FHC has been anything but. If you have a gifted student, do NOT send your child to this school. The administration is mediocre, at best. The principle is unresponsive, and thoroughly supports a teacher who is clearly disqualified to instruct our student. Lame, lame, lame."

    "If you have a child on an IEP or special needs, even minor learning disabilities, DO NOT ENROLL THEM IN FHC! Terrible, terrible, terrible! The school is HORRIBLE with helping special needs students! They only care about test scores!"

    "Coming from a DOD school system, we hoped for a better teaching and learning experience for our son. The teacher separates boys from girls in the seating arrangement, is unorganized, and fickle. The principal is unavailable, ineffective and lacks the leadership qualities to assist the teachers to be better. It is unfortunate, because there are other teachers and staff at this school that are great. We have had a few conferences, but the lack of communication has not improved. The leadership in this school needs to change so that the teachers will have a firm, supportive, and innovative team structure to depend on."

    "My daughter is just about to complete her first year (2nd grade) at this school. We have been very happy here. The teachers do a good job motivating the kids. Highly recommend!"

    "We moved to this district from a small, poor, rural school district in Michigan that only has a Greatschools rating of "5." Let me tell you, I would choose that district over FHC every day of the week and twice on Sunday. The only positives for FHC are that there is no violence, and the teachers actually teach, but as for any "best in the area" ratings, FHC isn't that good...other districts are worse. The principal is unresponsive and has a "well, Stowers is up the road if you don't like us" attitude. The policies of the district are ridiculous -- uniforms for a public school? They do have a waiver to opt out of uniforms, which we signed for my oldest daughter...after the principal lectured us on how we were bad parents for doing it. My youngest girl is super-smart, but a bit ADD, and they treat her like she's mentally challenged, send her to the counselor's office to play for the day, and are mean to her on the school bus. I hate watching her hang her head and physically shrink as she approaches the bus. If you are a conformist suburbanite, with "yes ma'am, no ma'am" kids, you will love FHC. If you think for yourself and teach your kids to do the same, well, good luck."
