This is the best school ever. I had so much fun in this school. The fun parts were having so many activites and camping and other lunch games. And the p.e department has taught kids to play sports so well that they won so many awards
I am an eigth grader at Francisco Middle school, I join all sports and is in all honors classes. Once people hear about Francisco MS, they instently think about all the negative things that have happened, but in order to judge this school, you must go here. Our teachers are great, PE is outstanding, and in sports, we very well also. Actually, the softball team made it to championships two years in a row, thanks to wonderful coach Ms. Sui, and helping coach Mr. Jung. Our principal and vice principal, are epsecially what keeps us going. Very helping and very inspiring to all students. I would difinitely, let my children attend this school.
Overall, Francisco is a good school. Except for the rare fights and occasional mini food fights. As long as you do your part, nobody is going to punch you for no reason. I graduated from Francisco in 2009 as a school newspaper editor with outstanding algebra skills and top student in U.S. History. There are some good teachers in Francisco that really do beyond their part. Special thanks to James Michael Estes, my English and US History teacher, and my editor-in-chief for the school newspaper Francisco Free Press. Unfortunately, my class is the last class he taught in Francisco. Also special thanks to Helen Yee, my algebra and science teacher. Her algebra class might get a little dull sometimes, which is the definition of math to a lot of people, but she really teaches algebra. Memories of middle school will remain with me to my grave. -CL
The students are the kindest and smartest. The teachers are the best and the administrators are Fabulous!
Despite having the option to attend private school, our daughter has had an excellent experience at Francisco. Her teachers are exciting, devoted, and talented, and she has flourished learning from them. She is in the honors program, which I highly recommend. Even the PE department is exceptional, and has won numerous awards. Definitely consider this school!
The school is very attentive regarding all students and family members.
Thios school has a long way to go. They really need to work hard on their race issues
I am in seventh grade and I love love love Francisco Middle School!!! Seventh grade has been the best year of my entire life, and all because of Francisco MS. I always feel completely at home here because of my wonderful, caring teachers and close friends. This is by far a better school than many people say it is. It's simply fantastic and is getting better every day thanks to Ms. Giampoli and Mr. Lee, principal and vice principal, and all the wonderful teachers and faculty who work here. I wish I could attend this school for the rest of my academic career!
People may say that students in this school causes lots of fights, but if you think about it all schools have their bad things maybe worse then fights.(No school is perfect) Education here is not the best but, if it was rated from one through 10...it would be a 8 in a half.(Teachers teach differently) I love this school!
Academically, this school is a little rough around the edges. But that falls on the student, not the teacher. Just about everything else, outshines any other school. I have called this place my school for 2 years, and as of tomorrow, I can proudly call myself an 8th grader of Francisco Middle School. -B.L.
There should always be enough learning materials for students. This is the school's budgets problem, but a complaint should not be made with the school's poor academics, rather than consider if parents are performing the right task of encouraging their child/children to learn. Most times a child's academic progress is really up to how close his/her family is connected.
This school is terrible!! It is unsafe for any student wanting to learn and get an education. There are constant fights, swearing, disrespect and just not a good school to have a child attend.
Music and Sports activities are excellent. Needs more parent involvement in many areas, lack of Encouragement for parent involvement.
The academics are very very poor. Music, drama, and sports programs appear to be strong. Very low level of parent involvement.
This school is the best place for any student who just came in to the united states or is having problems in his/her other schools..cause almost all of the students but few in this school care about their grades and their citizenship rather then fights or any other activity that may not be unrelated to what is not to be in the schools of San Francisco.This has the bestest ratings in studys because they give your children the kind of study they need instead of just throwing them in a class where any other school would just throw them in.I have been in this school for almost three years and from what is going on in these schools these days, I would rather prefer this school then any other from what I have heard about the other schools and for what I have seen in the other schools. so thank you.
