this school is an average. though there is a big sense of family (everyone knows everyone), the academics need more work. i graduated from this school last school year. their curriculum, in terms of advancement, has flourished, though. the elementary school is very nice, and you will get a nice education from PK-5. the middle school needs work. the classes are nothing in comparison to high school, and i believe that they do not prepare you well enough for that big step. for example, i am stressing right now because in my math class, what is supposed to be "review" from 8th grade is new material for me. you should send your child here if you want him or her to grow and flourish in a huge, culturally diverse family!

The teachers are a bit strict in this school. The specials (extra-curricular) are a bit on the down side. Mostly, you will only get bullied if you are one or to people seem like a 'loser.'

The school is wonderful and I love it here. I have been here since the begining. I never ever think that any school could be better. My favorite class is media because I have a peaceful time reading books. My favorite subject is science because I learn so many interesting things.

My child seems to enjoy learning at St. Frances. The school always keeps us informed with her grades and how she is doing- I can access her grades each week on the computer. I like the special activites they offer after-school to create a well-rounded educational experience.

My daughter has been at St. Frances since she was in the Parents Morning Out Program (8 years). My husband and I wanted a school that was committed to Catholic education; he is not Catholic but believes in its mission. SFCCS offered not only a well-rounded education but was faith-based and small enough to offer personalized attention. Parents feel welcome and are very involved. Our principals have done a superior job dealing with 21st century challenges in education. As an educator myself, I am completely happy with SFCCS and so is my daughter. Our dual accrediation process with SACS and the FCC will be completed at the end of this month and was delayed only because our growth was not complete. Now that 8th grade has been added, we can concentrate on continued excellence.

We pulled our children out four years ago and are very happy at the Cath. school they now attend. We tried everything before we left Cabrini from talking to teachers, the principal and even the priest. We even had a meeting with the superintendent of Cath. schools - all to no avail. We left because of low academic standards, no discipline (my child was getting bullied everyday) and no leadership. The year we left several families left. The one thing we all had in common was that one or both parents were teachers. We all knew what it was to be in a well run school. At the time, Cabrini was not. Since we left, the school has hired a new principal. Maybe she will provide the much needed leadership the school desperately needs. I hope so. I believe in Cath. ed. and want to see the school succeed.

I'm a parent of a child who attends Cabrini. We have been in the Cabrini family for 5 years. We will stay. We are very pleased. I know most of the parents of the children who have left Cabrini, they will not be happy anywhere. Our family believes in fixing a problem, not leaving and then complaining about it. You must remember this is a Army town. Teachers and students come and go all the time.

Wonderful school, great teachers and fabulous families. The school offers a lot of opportunities for parental involvement. The children at this school are engaged and encouraged to aim for the stars. General impression is the one of peace, purpose and dedication. Come and check it out!

An excellent school with great academics and extra curricular activities. This school instills in children strong sense of community and belonging based on the best prinscipals of teachings of catholic faith. I have two children at St. Frances and we love it. The reading program, peer tutoring, music and Spanish are great. The staff and the principal are very dedicated and always there for the students and parents.

As a public school teacher, I can say that the academics at St. Frances are above the standards set for students in my school. My daughter loves this school. She feels safe and comfortable in the school and on school grounds. I feel great knowing she is secure at school each day. I would and do recommend St. Frances to anyone who asks!

I would not recommend sending your child to St. Frances. I use to attend this school and the some of the teachers seemed inexperienced. The has a problem with keeping teachers for more than a certain amount of time. They spend money they dont have. I really do not reccomend this school.

We are a family, we are a great school, our test scores are not lower than public school, yes we have a few 'kinks' to work out, we haven't been around as long as some other private schools, but please do not base your decision of our school on a few sour parents.

The school lacks organization and still has quite a few growing pains to deal with. Would only recommend for pre-k through second grade.

My child has attended St. Frances Cabrini since first grade. He is now in sixth grade. The staff is wonderful and caring. The academic programs are challenging. The school adds a grade each year and will continue to the eighth grade. It can be trying for the oldest children and their parents. That's where we are. Our children are the first to try the new teacher, etc. Overall, it is a very good school and I'm very happy I chose it. My child doesn't make the best grades, but he gets the grades he earns. Grading is fair and the life lessons students learn are super. They have missions each month and the youngest children learn these lessons. We suffer growing pains from time to time, but it is still a wonderful school and community. Parents and staff work together for the development of the student body.

I have observed this new school and the staff. They are dedicated and hard working. The faculties are new and well kept. This school is ten minutes from Georgetown, that is great. It is located behind St. Joseph's Hospital in Savannah, GA. This school is dedicated to teaching Christian values. The Students go on many field trips and have many opportunities to expand their knowledge. The parents are an important part of St. Frances Cabrini and work in a family friendly environment. I give this school an excellent rating.
