I love the feeling of family. My 4 children have been part of St. Francis Xavier School family for 8 years. My children have made honors, join in school functions, participate in community projects and give of themselves by volunteering whenever and wherever they can. This past school year they started an awards Friday program. I love tham my children come home excited about the awards they have achieved & receive. Positive reinforcement is wonderful. I'm really happy they are at SFX School.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
