3. If my child has a learning disability, like Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, or something that is comparable, may he/she apply at First Baptist School?

Yes, if the child can work in a traditional classroom setting.  Prospective students must be able to comply with regular academic and behavioral standards, and our Student Expectation Guidelines.  In this case,  FBS will consider the student if he/she passes all entrance requirements.  All incoming students are automatically placed on a one year probationary period.

No, if the student has academic or behavioral issues that require special resources above what we can offer in a traditional setting.  FBS is simply not equipped to meet those needs.
