I LOVE this school. It is second to none! Very strong Catholic identity and top notch academics! Very dedicated faculty and staff from Pre-k through 8th grade! I was told it was the "RICH" school; however, it is rich, but rich in amazing people and even more amazing students! The families here are wonderful & supportive of each other! I have had the privilege of having my children in all grade levels here and beyond a shadow of a doubt...this is an amazing school! The principal, Artie Moore is as REAL as they come! He is in it all the way and is doing an amazing job with all aspects of the school! I''m soo thrilled to be a part of the St. Francis School community! I 150% recommend this school!
