What can I say? It would take a huge essay. Come see for yourself. Student-centered, faith driven, exceptional dedicated staff, all on a shoe string budget. Academics, student after school opportunities and an exciting fine arts program...can't be beat!

My grandson is a 4th generation student. Though the school is small, the teacher-to-student ratio ensures increased one-on-one assistance in all areas of education. Our school is proud to note that one of the National Merit Scholars in 2009 was an alumnus of St. Francis-St. James. The buddy system at the school ensures that the older kids help the younger ones. The feeling of 'family' is very evident, and the staff communicates continuously with parents to ensure student success in all areas of academics.

The teachers, parents and students are invested in one another. The school has little resources but does great work in preparing the students for high school and for life.

I love SFSJ because of the dedication the teaching staff has for the students. Though the school is small, they serve their kids like no other catholic school around - especially in their music, photography and drama departments.

On a one to ten scale, ten being the best rating, St. James-St. Francis is a 10. It has small class sizes and wonderfully talented staff!

This is a wonderful school with a staff that is dedicated to ensuring the children learn in a safe and comfortable environment. The classrooms are small so each child receives one on one attention. This is a definete five star school.

I unfortunately no longer go to sfsjus but will return next year. Its hard to explain but we have this feeling of comfort and it makes it much easier to learn. I also give my kudos to the staff. They work so hard (for so little) to give us a catholic education. This school deserves more than 5 stars!
