What is an accelerated kindergarten?

The following is an actual page that 90% of FWCS kindergarteners are able to read by the end of March.

By year's end, 80% of FWCS's kindergarteners are able to easily and fluently read the following first grade story:


Ride the Bus

Dad, may Al ride on the bus?
Yes, Al may ride on the bus.
Al go on the bus.
The bus did not run late.
Al rode and rode on the bus.


No Time for Play

Chip has work to do.
He will not play.
He must run to get nuts for food.
He fills his cheeks with the nuts.
He will store them in his nest.
He cannot see the food if snow is on the ground.
He must work now.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Class

What parents say about FWCS

After homeschooling for seven years, we hesitantly decided to place our children back in regular schools. We chose First Wesleyan for our youngest child. She attended FWCS for grades 6th-8th. It was a great transition for her going from home to Christian to public. She has many fond memories of her days at FWCS.
