This Catholic grade school reminds me of the one I grew up attending as a child 40 years ago. They're doing a great job with my child who happens to be autistic. He's receiving a good education at a reasonable price and also learning to be a good citizen. I could go on and on. This school is fantastic .

My daughter attends St. Francis, and it is a wonderful institution. The teachers & other staff members are very helpful, warm, and genuinely care about each student. I attended SFS for two years as a child, and my experience was filled with enriching experiences & great memories-I even still have a few friends I made while attending (and that was 18 yr ago!). Would highly recommend as an investment in your child/children's academic future.

All of my children attended St. Francis. The school provided a strong foundation, which has helped them make good life choices. The academics are top-notch, and the whole atmosphere at the school is inclusive.
