The discipline policy here is a joke. They tell the kids to "mind their own business" whenever they report violent or bullying behavior. You couldn't pay us to return to this school. The administration needs to go! Absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!

I am an alumni of SFDS (Currently a sophomore at Badger Highschool) and this school is wonderful. All the kids and teachers are like family, and everyone knows each other. It may not be the newest or best-looking school, but SFDS is Lake Geneva's best-kept secret. I still think about it all the time and remember how wonderful this place was. I attended from PreK-8th grade, and SFDS gave me a much better education than any other public school in the area, hands-down. I highly recommend sending your student here! You will not be disappointed.

My daughter started in 4K and is now in 8th grade. The teachers, librarian, computer lab & sports are wonderful, working together to involve teachers, parents and students. It is a bonus to have Mass and religion as well.

The 4K program at this school is absolutely wonderful! My son has learned so much since the beginning of the year, by the third month of school he was signing the alphabet. The teachers are fabulous and have been teaching together for several years, and really go all out in their lesson plans to get the kids interested in learning the theme.

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.
