St. Francis is a fantastic school. The teachers are always improving their teaching techniques, the staff really listens to parents and the children love school.

The teachers and principal do their best to educate the students to the best of their (and the students) abilities. They really prepare the students well for the challenges of high school. Also, the commitment to nurturing and developing their Catholic foundations is exemplary, and further substantiated by the involvement of pastor and priest from St. Francis Borgia Church.

It is a wonderful educational experience. Our children go on to High Schools in the top percent. Our faculty is devoted to excellence. And the families express genuine kindness and love for God. Parents are encouraged to participate in school activities. In general everyone that belongs to SFB is committed.

I am a former parent and current employee of St. Francis Borgia School. My children attended St. Francis Borgia from 4K through 8th grade. They received an outstanding academic education, which thoroughly prepared them both for their high school years. The nuturing, Christian environment gave them the support and encouragement they needed to grow into confident young adults. The teaching staff was approachable and responsive to any concerns we had as parents. The school atmosphere and sense of family created lasting friendships for both our children and us as parents.

Our school provides great education with a strong focus on helping kids make good decisions to become good and morale people. Our teachers, administrators, parents, and kids are what makes our school fantastic!

Students are encouraged to reach their full academic potential while building character and strong values. I heard a high school teacher say that you could always tell a student that came from SFB because they had better homework skills and were kinder children!

St Francis Borgia School has taught my children not only great academics, but to care for each and every person in the world. They teach them to go above and beyond what they think they can do!

There is something to be said about a school that is focused on the integral formation of the student body, mind and soul. You won't unfortunately can't get that in today's public school system. We're fortunate here in Cedarburg to have an exceptional public school system. We're even more fortunate to have a great Catholic school that consistently delivers results. You don't always need the latest, greatest technology to develop clear thinking minds. You need the kind of teachers and staff you'll find at Saint Francis Borgia school. I have four kids in the system and another just two years away. It's worth every penny, and more.

St. Francis Borgia is fabulous! Exceptional education and teachers and staff who truly care about your child. Love the size of the school not too big, not too small. A wonderful sense of community.

I am a former student. I was well-prepared not only for high school, but for life. The teachers are extremely attentive. I received a great education in English as well as Science. Aside from teaching actual subjects, students are taught skills such as organization, respect, and ambition to reach their goals. I do not believe I could have received such an education elsewhere.

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.
