very negligent. school nurse only comes once a week. no lunches provided. no gymnasium.no grass fields. open exits. roam free in halls (kindergarten age).always asking for money(fundraisers.$5 dolar pizza once a week.$1 to not wear uniforms.trips are NEVER free.and other ridiculous things like a $5 dollar lollipop for Valentine's day) my child always gets neglected in the afterschool program, and incident reports are never given. exit doors aren't always secure. children roam the halls in after school program as long as they are with a partner! I am currently seeking a more fit school
I never really liked this school until the new principal came.He made a lot of improvment to the school.
My grandchildren have attended St Francis for three years and I feel this school is one of a kind. It represents a multi-cultural blend of all the children in the city.. Most are Catholic but some are not but everyone is treated equally. Whenever the resources are lacking the faculty makes up for it twofold for the children. The children are being taught by dedicated teachers who are good people and they are teaching the children the value of being good citizens in the community.
My child attended the pre-k program for 2yrs. During that time period I was not pleased with the staff in that program. The principal has left and they hired another who is not very impressive. The support there is very minimum. They need improvement. It is overall a safe environment but the facility itself could use a lot of brushing up. There is a less than a hand full of teachers that can be appreciated and show strength and effort. I am switching to another school which will be more dedicated to the childrens needs.
