School Reviews

5  
St. Francis has a top-notch Kindergarten. We have experience with a child who attended kinder elsewhere and experiences with a child that is currently attending Kinder at St. Francis. The St. Francis Kindergarten curriculum is outstanding, and the level of expectation amazes me. The classroom is peaceful, yet filled with excitement for exploring and learning. My kindergartener is challenged at an age-appropriate level in all areas due to an outstanding, experienced teacher. Speaking from our experience with this school, the teachers are exceptional and dedicated. Our children have embraced the community values, discipline, and high expectations from these educators that leave them fulfilled and give them time outside of school to enjoy the fun of being kids.
