Patriot STARS

Reaching Higher

Beyond our advanced class grouping offered in each grade level, our Patriot STARS Elementary Scholars program provides high-achieving students the ability to reach new heights!

Our Elementary Scholars program will provide our high-achieving students the foundation to reach new heights not only academically, but socially, spiritually, and more. Once they graduate from 5th grade as a Patriot STAR, they will be ready for our Middle School Honors Program and beyond! Patriot STARS meet after school once a week to engage in enriching activities and projects. Students will be appropriately grouped with similar multi-grade level peers ( 1st – 3rd grade and 4th – 5th grade).

Elementary Children Partake in the Election Process

Our teachers believe that even more than just imparting knowledge, we are teaching our children what a privilege it is to vote. It is a privilege, as FCS Patriots, to teach our students the value of good citizenship and love for our country.
