School Reviews

I love my school!!!!!!!!!!! It's so great and with such little classes you can get one on one time with teachers. Most people prefer a large school, but I like my little school. We only have six students in my class and only two girls, my best friend and me. We hang out all the time and have so much fun. It's so great to have a small school. We love you St. Francis!!!!!!!
