SFC has taught my two children from pre K-8th gr & they have been fortunate to have received an excellent academic & well rounded education. Both of my children have particiapated in the track & basketball sports programs, student council & academic honors classes. The school has consistently provided a nurturing, supportative, positive moral environment over the years. One of my children graduated & entered in a very challanging high school. He was very well prepared in all of the academics & is well adjusted. We are grateful over the years at SFC our children were given the tools to go out into the with more than academics, team work, morality, patience and honesty. I am proud of choosing SFC to teach my children.

This school has many positives- it provides low teacher to student ratios, an excellent science program and lab, hot lunch every day, honors math and many sports activities. My children attended this school for 4 years until my daughter graduated and we moved. My children are now in public school in a top ranked public school system and I can tell you that they were very well prepared for the public school curriculum. My oldest is in Honors in many of her courses. Prior to this school, we had been at another Catholic School in the area and I can say for a fact that the education we received at St. Francis Cabrini was by far superior. The priest is very involved and knows each child by name as well as the parents. Where else can you find this kind of environment?

An extraordinary school with a nurturing environment that promotes student excellence. My oldest son have graduated three years ago and was accepted in a prestigious HS where is he continues studying in the honors program. My youngest will graduate this year and has placed no less than the 98% percentile in academics on the terra Novas over a four year period. This is a credit to the school and their commitment to excellence. St Frances Cabrini is one of the most diverse schools in the diocese and is perhaps the best kept secret in Central Jersey. I would recommend the school to any parent that is interested in maig a serious investment in their child s future.

This school offers a great educational experience for 3 and 4 year olds; part time or full time.

The environment of this school is very negative. There is little opportunity for accelerated children to excel and almost no services for struggling children. They claim to provide a great education but it cannot compare to the opportunities offered at the local public schools. The teacher quality is terrible. Now that Piscataway has full-day kindergarten, I see no reason to send children here. I pulled my children out of this school and I know of many families who have done the same. My children were way behind when they entered public school and they were at the top of their respective classes at SFC.

This is our fourth year at SFC. Our oldest daughter graduated in 2004. It's a nice close knit school with a good atmosphere. Most of teachers (including the principal) are respectful to the students. There are a few in the upper grades that need to learn to speak to the students in a more respectful and supportive way. Overall the school provides a good education & offers a variety of extracurricular activities from sports to dances to after school 'get togethers' giving the students a lot of opportunities to socialize outside of the classroom. The prinicpal is seen at most activities which I see as very supportive overall.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
