We love St. Francis Xavier. Our daughter has been attending SFX for the last 4 years. We truly believe she's getting a quality education, she's excelling in all areas of study. We love the small class sizes, teachers and staff are amazing, we appreciate all the opportunities we have as parents to participate in the school, we love the close-knit environment. Love of God, Love of Others and Love of self!
As a student this was a fantastic school. A true sense of community built through common experience. It was great that the roof leaked a little and that everything wasn't polished and clean because that is how life is. I feel the education was a solid foundation looking back after finishing my masters in engineering.
I would have to disagree with other ratings...St. Francis has good intentions but it misses the mark on quality modern education. While is does instill catholic values, academically it is mediocre at best, and not worth the tuition for those that have to pay full price. Many of the seasoned faculty have never taught anywhere else and it shows. They are stuck in a rut and very resistant to change and updating instruction. Your better off going to one of the other catholic schools where, for the same price, you get more technology, specials, programs, and teachers who are willing to be innovative.
We are just finishing up our first year at St. Francis. I cannot express enough how impressed I am with this school. Having worked in the public system for many years I can honestly say the superior education and supportive and caring community found at St. Francis is truly unique, even among parochial schools. The principal is wonderful as are her staff. The tuition is well worth it. Everyone at the school is happy and smiling, including the many parent volunteers. There are many activities for families, and for students' varying interests! You won't be disappointed!
