St. Francis is a small school that strives to help children learn about their faith, and apply it to their lives. Students not only learn how to love God but their neighbors, and work hard in and out of school.

St. Francis offers an excellent Catholic based preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds. All teachers are certified. This is a full day program for as little as $53 per week. Children learn shapes, letters, numbers, counting, prayers, health, prayers, and are offered many self esteem building activities. Excellent Faith based program.

St Francis is a Catholic School that is truly faith based. 90% of the teachers are nuns. They are caring and supportive of the children s academic development. As a small school, the teachers are able to focus on the students individual needs. There is a Title 1 instructor available for children who need extra help. Bright students are challenged with work from higher levels. Tuition is low because their idea is to supply as many children as possible with faith-based education. There's a lot of fundraising (7 mandatory events per year) because tuition only covers 40% of the operating costs. The 'Name Game' system that often occurs in private schools is non-existant here - all children are treated equally, regardless of income level. Due to size and cost, there are not any extra-curricular activities; however there is a lot of parent involvement. The after-school care program is wonderful and affordable.

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.
