St. Francis School opened its doors in 1893. It was located on the land now covered by the church parking lot.
The sisters of St. Joseph were placed in charge of the school.
During its first decade, the school proved viable and was ready for larger facilities.
St Francis school is a catholic school because Catholic education focuses on the whole person, on the physical, moral, and intellectual talents of each student.
Catholic education inspires a spirit of learning, knowing, and understanding the worthwhile goals of life.
Catholic education further facilitates the blending of religion with the challenge of learning and living through a well-balanced curriculum.
