Map of St. Francis of Assisi School address.

St. Francis of Assisi is one of many Catholic schools/academies affiliated with the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens. This academy educates children from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. This school it enhance my vocabulary. MY school is a bully free school. The environment is very safe. Students represent all levels of ability, both academically and socially. The school community strives to work together to nurture students who are cooperative, compassionate, kind-hearted, good-natured, respectful and responsible.

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy is a great school. The teachers put in enough effort to help students with upcoming State Tests. I'll like to say that one teacher, Ms. Ferdinand, puts in a lot of effort with her class(es).

St. Francis of Assisi School is a wonderful school where children are thought more about God and his works of mercy. This school educates children from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. They have after-school clubs and fantastic trips especially in the summer, that kids enjoy. What I like about the school is the technology. St. Francis has ipads and chrome books. So you can clearly see this school has the potential in learning with the usage of technology. I think our school needs improvement on the doors and the water system. Our doors are absolutely fine but our is school want to protect our kids in other words keep them safe from any danger. Last but not least our water system. We need more hot water but no in our water fountains. If you choose this school to give the money to I am sure our school will make good usage of it. Thank You!!

I have been a parent at SFA for about 7 yrs and LOVE this school. The principal, asst. principal and ALL the staff are the BEST! The school works as a community with the parents because we all want to make sure our children learn by example. The afterschool program is a wonderful place for my children to finish their homework or get extra help. And my children love this school!

SFA has come a long way recently with remodeling, solar panels and new computer labs, I am very impressed and I can see that the tuition is being used well. My son's teacher is very caring and gives him the extra help he needs. The school lunches could be better, but not the fault of the school since the lunches are provided by the state. I pack my son's lunch.

St. Francis is a great school. The adminstration cares about each and every child and they know them all by name !!! They have created a school that thrives on creativity ( two major shows a year !!). They are tech advanced and the lobby bathrooms have been recently updated. The school does everything it can to help not only present students but alumni as well !! Keep up the good work

This is probrably the worst catholic school in brooklyn. The school has the worst bathrooms. On each floor the bathrooms smell, they are not cleaned properly. The bathrooms are not equipped with soap and warm water. The principals does know how to disicpline the children correctly. The classrooms are over crowded and there are not enough teachers. My son is in a class with almost 30 children in a class. How can one learn. Private schools are supposed to have less children for better learning. How can they practice for any state test with that number. This is why their tests scores are so low.

I think that st. francis can be a better school by having small classes in all grades. There are too many children in one class, that makes it hard for children to learn and for the teacher. I also think that there should be more activities to offer to the children. I think that the bathrooms can be much cleaner. Bathrooms should always have soap and warm water,and paper towels for children to wash their hands properly. And last, I personal feel that they are always short of teachers and staff. If teacher are absent there is not enough coverage.There should be a secruity guard by the front door. Many of times, stangers, and homeless people try to come inside the school and that is not safe for the children.

While I believe there are several good teachers in this school, they are not in the critital grades 6, 7, and 8. The level of homework is not enough for struggling children to grasp the concepts. Administrators need to take parents concerns more seriously and not react in a knee jerk manner towards the kids. There are no extracurricular activities where students can explore other arears such as music or dance. There is no encouraging the students in the voluntarism spirit.
