St finn barr academics are ok. Sports and activities need more parent involvement. Parent involvement not enough. Principal needs to listen more to the parents and less to his own agenda. Needs more and better fund raisers to improve financial state of school.
I highly recommend St. Finn Barr, especially for parents who are seeking a well-rounded, comprehensive approach to education. My daughter is exposed to a highly diverse student population, a challenging academic program, and access to arts, music and recreation. What impressed me most was the enthusiasm the staff has for their work. Their energy is infectious. It also has a very warm, family feeling to it. The work hard to foster a sense of community among the children and parents. It is a loving, happy and peaceful environment for parents and children. We researched all kinds of schools, public and private, but kept coming back to St. Finn Barr. I encourage parents to attend an open house and learn more about this hidden jewel.
Excellent education. Outstanding principal and teachers that are dedicated to the success of the children. The diversity of the students is amazing as well - even for San Francisco.
