St Francis Of Assisi School

  • St. Francis of Assisi School is not just a school--but a way of life.
  • To this end, we work to create a Catholic Christian school, in order to convey the Gospel spirit of freedom, love and responsibility nurtured through prayer and worship.
  • In our daily encounters with out students, we seek to embody the message of Jesus.
  • We aspire to offer our students the guidance necessary to become active participants in that message while affirming their knowledge and understanding of it in their treatment of one another.
  • We encourage our school community to reach out to the broader community in acts of service.
  • Academically, we strive to instill in our students an enthusiasm for learning and a thirst for knowledge.
  • Believing that self-discipline is necessary to engage in higher order thinking skills, we provide a structured environment that challenges students through independent activities as well as co-operative learning experiences.
  • Adapting our teaching methods to accommodate different learning styles as well as abilities of our students, we adhere to the Archdiocesan curriculum requirements as guides to teaching basic skills.
