Sending my child to St. Francis was just about the best decision I ever made. Keeping him in a smaller environment dedicated to providing a quality education has helped him grow and mature- without rushing the process as I see with so many others during the middle school years. It is a close-knit community and there are more than enough extra-curricular activities for him to experience. I know, since his three older brothers went through the public schools, that the expectations are high while the support is there for them to be successful and he's doing much more challenging work than his public school peers. Obviously, I just can't say enough good about this school!
