We have two children at TFS. They enjoy the school and the relationships they are building. The staff and the Friars balance very well the academics with religious teachings. The offerings are solid (I would personally prefer more languages) and there has been reasonable retention of teachers. Tuition is fairly priced and financial aid is possible; some may need to plan for additionals like meals, uniforms, etc. Overall this is great school and we will continue to enjoy it along with attending the Parish.

Blue Ribbon School by US DOE - great community feeling, very satisfied with choice. Our public school option is also one of the higher performing schools in Wake, according to NC DPI Performance Composites, but still think we are getting a better deal choosing St Francis.
