Excellent school. The staff are professional and the children learn in an environment that is safe and supportive. The teachers and Sr. Clare really work towards providing an environment that is conducive to learning.

St. Francis is an old-fashioned school with great values and educational methods. I am glad I sent both my children to this school who cares so much about its children. I can't imagine ever sending them anywhere else.

St. Francis Xavier is an excellent school. In my opinion, it is one of the most reputable grammar schools in the northern New Jersey area. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are attentive and genuinely caring, the students are well behaved and well mannered and the faculty sets an extraordinary example for the student body. I am proud to say my daughter is a student at St. Francis. I do not have a negative thing to say about the school.

Great qualified teachers who love the kids and because of the small ratio are able to dedicate more time. The great spiritual guidance of Sister Clare and the rest of the staff ensures that these children will grow up with the upmost confidence in the future and their ability to succeed in any given field. Also the school is very safe and the children are very protected.

I love St Francis Xavier School because I feel that my daughters are getting a great education. The classes are small and there is more attention given to a child that needs the help. The principal Sr Clare is great with all the students. I also like the environment they are in and also that they have prayers every morning. The children have an understanding of the Catholic faith. It is a great school.

SFX is an excellent school. Not only do the children get a good education, but are supported in a 'family-faith' based atmosphere. Both my children started in pre-K with my oldest preparing to graduate now from a prestigious secondary prep school.

I highly recommend that parents send their child to this school. The teachers know what they are doing and they take their time to explain what you don't understand.The school offers piano lessons and they provide art projects for you to do.It actually depends what grade you are in because when I was in the seventh grade we never did art. Probably art is from grades pre-k through sixth grade.The level for parent involment is getting higher and higher every year.The school to me thinks about the boys more than the girls because the boys will have more teacher attention than the girls. They provide no sports for the girls. The boys at least have baseball while the girls have nothing.When I was in the third grade the girls had cheerleading and girls basketball.I'm currently in the eighth grade and I've been here since the pre kindergarten.So I know a lot!

SFX is a school were the children are not only get a good education but also a religous one to. The only problem the school has is the way they do not discipline those children who are a constant disruption during the time the children are to be learning. Some of the teachers will just give extra homework and punish the whole class instead of the individual who is causing the disruption. My child is tired of the constant extra homework and is upset that he has to suffer becuase the teacher will not handle the situation accordingly. Hopefully the school will find a better method of disciplining those children that need it the most.

SFX provides a safe and catholic- based educational learning institute. Children feel safe and are friendly with the staff members. Since the student count is low, the students recieve quality education. Your child will be known by the first name and will feel as if part of a family. It really dosen't matter what religion you may be, you will feel safe and at home at St. Francis Xavier School.
