As said before, teachers are kind but totally oblivious to bullying and trouble among the students. Very disappointed.

You'll never know how bad this school is until you leave for high school. The former principal was not a leader. The faculty is oblivious. I had 1 or 2 friends here, but when I went to high school I made hundreds (some who went here.) I did, however, fall in love with band here.

St. Francis Borgia Grade School is a wonderful school. The Faculty are caring and compassionate about the most important thing: The STUDENTS. The school's principal is driven to make his school the best, even through budgets cuts and downsizing. As for Technology: the computer lab is updated yearly, five teachers have Smartboards, and I can check my son's grades online even from work. As for the review below: You can't please them all. I am very happy with Saint Francis Borgia Grade School.

Very happy to no longer be a part of this insular little school, for many reasons.

St. Francis Borgia Grade School is the best small private catholic school in the Washington area. SFBGS's test scores are in the top 10% of the nation. SFBGS 8th grade students consistently are awarded partial or full scholarships to the local private high school. SFBGS has experienced teachers, a strong discipline policy, fantastic computer facilities with over 25 computers in the lab and a full-time computer instructor with peripherals in all classrooms. This strong emphasis on academic achievement is supplemented by leaders in the community, volunteering parent programs, a successful sports program, the largest scouting program in the area, youth band and chorus opportunities and a dedicated Parish Board and Parish council. Overall, the students who graduate from SFBGS are very prepared to enter the college prepatory high school affiliated with the grade 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.
