  • The BestParent 08/12/2015
    We transferred here from a smaller Catholic school and I can't say enough good things about it! The teaching staff is excellent and my kids are learning in a way that appeals to them and makes them really enjoy going to school. This school is strong, focused, and efficient. Not a lot of fundraisers or extra stuff that gets annoying after a point. Love it.

    St. Francis of Assisi is a fantastic school! My children are so happy and are thriving academically. They love playing on the school soccer and basketball teams. The teachers are so friendly and truly care about their students. We are excited to see the new updated to technology and the new laptops for every student in the middle school next year. St. Francis is preparing my children for the future but still gives them roots with Catholic Values.
