"I’ve been in D8 since elementary school and I’m glad it worked out that way. I think this district provides opportunities for everyone no matter what you are into. There’s a lot of clubs and activities for artists, athletes, and just regular kids. I can find people with similar interests to me in this school, and I like that."
FFC8 IS APPROXIMATELY 70% MILITARY CONNECTED
"District 8 does a good job of promoting and blending those [military] children with the permanent residence of the area. And my kids don't feel isolated or left out from anything the district has going on. "
-James Emfinger, FFC8 Parent
"What I love about my kids school here is the flexibility that they offer for military kids. That when dads are deployed and they come home late at night, that it's okay to miss the next day of school."
-Kate Wirtz, FFC8 Parent
