School Official Point of View

Discover the advantage of an education from Saint Francis Xavier. Being a small school, our teachers know every student individually. Such attention to the spiritual, academic, and social well being of each child creates an environment where children discover their inherent gifts and gain confidence in themselves. Parents and teachers together foster the loving yet challenging environment for our children to grow in faith, knowledge, wisdom, and compassion. This is the SFX difference - we are a close-knit community of faculty, alumni and families dedicated to nurturing our students, fostering strong home and school relationships and academic excellence, rooted in God’s love for all. We believe that the spiritual, academic, and social aspects of every child form the foundation for their lifetime.

My son attended SFX three years ago, during which time he had a positive experience. We left for two years due to a job change, but as soon as we were able to return, we did not hesitate. Upon returning, we were warmly welcomed back. We have the utmost faith in the education our son is receiving and it is clear the the entire faculty is committed to the safety and well-being of all of the students. We are blessed to be a part of this community.

Excellent education as well as a great community. Just walk down the halls and you can feel the excitement and knowledge pouring out of the classrooms. You can tell the teachers love what they do and really care about each individual student. Small class sizes so each student is given attention and pushed to excel.

St. Francis and it's staff are amazing. We have been at the school now for four years and wouldn't dream of sending our kids anywhere else. The entire faculty is extremely involved with the children. Each teacher we have had has gone above and beyond with our kids. They are always willing to take the time to provide extra help and guidance when needed. The teachers and faculty are outstanding as are the parents and children at the school. Its a wonderful community and we couldn't be happier about sending our children to St. Francis.

SFX has changed my kids in so many ways! Not only do they learn the normal curriculum, but they learn to be obedient, respectful and trustworthy members of society. I would recommend them to EVERYONE

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 have to agree, the school is good, but it could be better. If your child is a self motivated high functioning student, great. Any special help, they don't want to deal with your child.

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!
