I am a graduate of St. Francis Xavier School and have watched my own children flourish here. The teachers are caring and provide a nurturing environment. Our 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are using Chrome Books, which are preparing them well for high school. Mrs. Deegan truly cares for her students and staff, and only wants the best for her school. My children have gone on to excellent high schools and colleges because of the foundation they have received at SFX.
Both my children graduated from SFX. They went on to great high schools and my daughter received almost a full scholarship to college. I credit their success to the wonderful teachers at SFX. Everything they taught them, stuck!! It truly is a wonderful school. A family.
We have a positive experience with this school. The teachers my son have had so far were knowledgeable and approachable. They go home with plenty of homework after school which is time consuming but understandable. Learning continues at home. The school is pretty organized in terms of activities and events. It would be nice if they put back a foreign language class like Spanish. The school would also need to stay competitive with other schools and as such, there is room for improvement. They do have computer class but I think they need to implement some sort of interactive homework or school site at home for parents to be more involved and track their children's progress in school. Overall, I have faith in the school and hope they would continue to strive for improvement.
How can this school develop honesty, integrity, and fairness in its students when the teachers and principle do not have this themselves. The principle and teachers need to set an example and they don't. You have teachers teaching their own children, you have a principle and teachers that favors students, and they definitely do not teach or show integrity at all. If us as parent with students in SFX does not teach it at home they will never learn it at SFX.
