Great school that builds the students mind, faith and personality.

St. Francis is an absolutely incredible school! Our kids have been their since Pre-K, and now they are in 6th and 4th grades. We can't give this school a higher rating or say anything better about it. The education is at the best level and attention for each kid and they make sure that students are learning at the best level for them. Since it is a Catholic School, the kids are also getting the very important spiritual element in their educational experience. The kids are great to each other and treat each other with respect. The kids and parents truly are a community, and a big family. The school's working philosophy is to help teach the kids to 'make a difference' in their lives -- no matter what that ultimate calling may be. And the fact that a couple of years ago, the student body presidents from Servite, Rosary and Mater Dei were ALL from the same 8th grade St. Francis class is a real example of how our school's kids go on to do great things with what they learn at St. Francis. Not to mention, it is a on a beautiful campus that overlooks Orange County -- AND the tuition is quite reasonable. The teachers and school leaders are all great people and do a great job. An awesome school!!


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
They definitely do not put up with bullying and take action when needed. But our kids are very respectful, so I really haven't seen any of this.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
They have staff in place that is able to help with this and are able to support the different needs of kids.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Awesome leadership! Leading edge approaches to education. Why St. Francis ranks among the highest percentiles on nationwide tests and is ranked at the highest levels in Orange County on many of the standardized tests. When our kids eventually go to high school, word on the street is that they are about 2 years more advanced than the other kids from other schools. And many of our kids are qualified as 'honors upon entry' at their high schools in their first year.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
I mentioned this in my review, that since it is a faith-based school, you get a much higher level of caring and respect among the kids. They are a great group of kids.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Awesome teachers! They really care about our kids. They take the extra effort to provide the best education possible for our kids.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
It is perfect. Not too much, not too light. And with homework plans the fit the specific educational level of the kids. Works well for us!

This is my family's 5th year at St. Francis and I cannot stress enough how wonderful this school is. The teachers are very devoted to their students education, and really encourage each child to live up to his or her highest potential. St. Francis is more then just a school, it is a family. I could not imagine having my children attend any other school.

My son transferred to St. Francis from a public school so that we could feel as though he was in a safe and nurturing environment for his Jr. High years. We were immediately impressed by the sense of community. The first big event we attended in the fall was Tricks, Treats, & Tacos - this evening event spanned from Preschool to 8th graders getting in on the fun! Since then, we've attended many family and parent events and have gained some amazing friends along the way. My son has thrived academically, especially with the opportunity to take Advanced Math and Spanish. All of his teachers are patient, understanding, and supportive ~ he actually looks forward to coming to school every day! What a blessing St. Francis has been to our family; I would highly recommend this school to others seeking a school that truly cares about its students.
