St. Francis Xavier Catholic School is an extraordinary academic institution. My son is in first grade and I am very satisified with his teachers, the school staff and administration. In addition to the instructors great teching methods, the staff members are very caring and welcoming. When I leave my son at school I know that he is receiving a great education and his spirit and social skills are also being enhanced on a daily basis. I recommend St. Francis to any parent that is seeking a productive, challenging and caring academic environment for his/her child(ren).

I have 2 children that attend this school and they both love it. The staff is incredible. I know that when my children are at school they are being well educated by teachers who LOVE them and that makes a big difference.

I used to attend St. Francis Xavier Catholic School. All I can say is it is #1 in my book! They helped me reach my highest potential! I graduated with honors! All the teachers prepared us for what we would come across in high school! All the advice and time they put into helping us learn paid off. I am now a honors high school student! I just would like to say thank you to all the faculty and staff! I truly recommend St. Francis Xavier to anyone!

I love the school it's like sending my son to family. Teachers are concerned about not only the student that is taught in class but all students at the school.

I can sum this school up in one word excellent! The teachers are higly skilled and work hard to bring the best in each child. They give a new meaning to the phrase 'no child left behind,' because if your child attends this school and they are below level just give them a little while and they will be on level and then above level. This school operates on love and devotion. Every one at this school is both loving and devoted to each child. This school is like one big happy family.

SFX exceeded my expectations of a small school. My child contineously score in the 90th percentile on standardized test. SFX is the best!

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.
