The administration lacks. They changed teachers twice in one year. They don't take responsibility and they are very unorganized. There are too many students in one class. Teachers don't have control over the classroom. And they pass even those children who need to repeat a grade or a year. No extra curricular activity. No technology although they charge a fee for it. They use old text books. And the students at this school are not where they need to be academically. The principal is a bitter disappointment. His under staff tell him what needs to be done. He is too nice and let's them walk all over him and in return bad decisions are often made. He doesn't take responsibility for he wasn't the one who made the call. Look else where for a school. The teacher student ratio is 1:36.
At St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Academy students are taught to be honest and take responsibility for their actions even at a very young age. They learn that actions have consequences. Both the Principal and teachers work hard to maintain a strong sense of integrity and fairness among all students. This is why I keep my children at this school they teach children how to be good citizens.
Both my son and daughter attend St. Frances Cabrini. I am pleased with the family atmosphere, all teachers, the principal and staff are respectful to the children and teach them to take responsibility for their actions. The principal goes out of his way to be available whenever a concern arises.
I love that they use so much technology. All children have emails and homework's and reminders are placed on Google Classroom. My kids love the different sites they use to learn such as Mathletics, Education City and Raz-kids. I highly recommend this school.
I have been pleased with all of the teachers my son and daughter have had so far at St. Frances Cabrini . They have been very professional and compassionate. They really care about their students. I could ask questions and the teacher would always get back to me immediately.
The homework is placed on the Google Classroom and the work is just right. My kids do the homework on their own - no tears! I love it!
Plus with all the computer sites my children do reading and math practice on the weekends because they want to and they like it.
My child is currently at St. Frances Cabrini and has been for six years. Over the last few years, I have seen an incredible push towards using technology in education! I have not heard of any other Brooklyn Catholic school that uses Google Apps for Education like St. Frances Cabrini does. The school even offered workshops for parents to familiarize them with the Gmail accounts.
The staff is extremely accommodating, often answering emails throughout the day, even late into the evening. As for the administration, I have found on many occasions that if I had a concern and I expressed it to anyone on the administrative team, it was dealt with justly and immediately.
It troubles me to see comments like those below about the school and makes me question whether the people who wrote them wrote out of anger and how active the parent was within the school community.
