Our Programs

Hello and Welcome

At First Methodist School we feel that an essential key to higher learning is school enjoyment and that a child’s school years should be a positive experience. Children are learning about their world and developing socially, emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Our program offers activities and experiences to foster growth in each area. It is our goal for each child that he/she will enjoy the school experience, be excited about learning and develop and display a good attitude toward education, both now and in the future.

We welcome you to come in for a visit, meet our experienced faculty and staff and experience first-hand the friendly, family atmosphere of First Methodist School!
