My son attended Maria Immacolata until I pulled him out and placed him in St. Francis. The difference was amazing. The school is much more organized and the administration and staff are much more helpful. He did receive more homework than he did at Maria Immacolata, but his grades are better, his learning has increased dramatically, and for the first time, he actually looks forward to going to school in the morning.

My son attending St. Francis for one year and I pulled him out. While private schools do have a reputation to uphold, it seems to be forgotten that they are children and should be treated as such. There is so much homework assigned that I wondered who was the teacher - myself or my child's teacher. Children of doctors, lawyers, and wealthy individuals are treated very differently than those of average families. Those less fortunate are pushed to the side, while others are highlighted. As a fellow educator trying to afford this 'great' education, I was sadly disappointed.

My name is Janet and my son will begin his sixth year at St. Francis. I could not be more pleased with the faculty, administration and curriculum. My son has blossomed from a shy preschooler into a confident 3rd grader. He is happy and well adjusted. The faculty is firm while showing compassion and understanding. The teachers ensure that each child is working to their fullest potential. The faculty also knows each parent on a first name basis and go above and beyond to help and assist parents with what ever needs they may have. My husband and I both work to give our son the best possible education and St. Francis has certainly exceeded our expectations.
