Great teachers! They have been engaged with my child's education and keep me updated on any concerns.

I am very pleased with the way St. Frances Cabrini has moved forward to become one of the more progressive schools in our community. We now have a technology integrated curriculum for science, math, and social studies. Our teachers work hard to bring fresh, new ways to reach all students in a variety of creative ways. We have programs designed to support both the struggling students, and the students that need additional challenges. Our anti-bullying measures are clear, with immediate follow-up, and the staff works hard on proactive techniques with the students to minimize incidents. I am very excited for the future of this school, both for my own children, and for the future generations that will benefit from this outstanding Catholic education.

Leadership changes have brought this school back to an excellent level of academic and social responsibility. Strong anti-bullying programs have been implemented, and are followed through with. There is now a gifted math program, as well as individual tutoring for all level learners. The reading, science, math, and physical education programs have been revamped with new materials, new technolgy, and some new teachers. I am very pleased that the school has stepped up so strongly with the new principal to meet and exceed our expectations as parents.

Academics lower than expected. Bullying continues to be problem as well as cliches. Good parent involvement. Communication between school and home is very minimal, ( one newsletter a week) Fr. Nathan is doing a nice job in trying to unify SFC with HA.

Leadership is lacking for strong and progressive academic programs/policies throughout the school. While there are many good teachers, there are also some that perform at a minimum level of competency. No state teaching license required in parochial schools. Foreign language is offered to 6,7,8 grades (only French adequately taught). World languages taught at lower levels in place of a comprehensive foreign language program. A poorly conceived and regulated dress code in place, should just have gone with uniforms if a proper dress code was strongly desired. Teacher student ratio good. Art, music, computer programs are good. Another plus is the dedicated library staff. Religious lessons part of every day curriculum (30 min. +/-) in addition to this attendance at a mass once a week is required. Fairly conservative atmosphere throughout the school. No strong policy on bullying, some issues also with cliches.




- a
Academically, this is a fine school. The curriculum is good and the students are challenged. The school, however, does suffer from a lack of discipline and leadership. Problem students are not uniformly addressed and they continue to impact classes and recess knowing full well there will be little or no accountability. The teachers do a good job of working with students and making sure they are learning the material. The music, art and computer teachers do a tremendous job motivating students.
