Great college preparation. Outstanding academic, fine arts and athletic programs. School set on a 70 acre suburban campus. Franciscan philosophy evident in attitude of students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff. Excellence without pretentiousness.

Great college preparation in an ideal nurturing environment. 70 acre suburban campus setting rivals some small colleges.

St.Francis High School is a great high school. It has gave me the path to great opportunities. The school is huge and supports and provides for the students. The school has the top music programs in Western New York. It also has one of the top Athletic programs in Western NewYork after wining the Supramcy cup this year. The school aslo has great academics which leads us men of St.Francis High School into having great and prosperous futures.

My Son was the only one from his grade school to attend SFHS and it has truly been a blessing. He loves it there and has meet so many new friends. He also had a serious medical condition that if not for the school nurse,he would not be here today. The campus is like a college campus. The view of Lake Erie is beautiful as well as the surrounding acres of greenery. The school has its'own athletic fields which are currently being upgraded and expanded. The Science Lab is now state of the art. The teachers and staff are so courteous and helpful. These teachers will do whatever is needed to help the students to succeed. The Guidance Dept. is also very helpful in giving direction not only to the students, but the parents also. The Friars offer spiritual guidance to the young men and their families as well. This was best decision we ever made!!!!

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.
