24 Parent Reviews for St. Francis Of Assisi Elementary School

My Daughter Has attended SFA Since 1St Grade, This Year Our Life Change & SFA Staff Were Willing To Help Us Out Financially & We Will Be Forever Grateful.

I Am Disappointed With SFA Way Of Teaching & The Materials That Teachers Are Teaching Our Kids With.

This is child centered focus school. We are a non catholic family and have the school very embracing of children who have their religions. Classes are small and teachers are excellent. They want all the children to succeed through hardwork and dedication. Teachers run the after school program for the
... Read more students which range from cooking, basketball, Spanish, art, science and Tagala. They have an award winning drill team. Because its a private school serving some of the poorest communities that is also taken into consideration in the fee structure for the school which makes it affordable even for Title I families.The school is small and contained with all children from K-8 being housed in the same building. Last year end of a school performance showed off all the artistic talents of all the children that attend and you never felt like there was just one star which I have seen at other school performances. This academic year we have new leadership however the new principal had been a previous teacher at the school and is coming back to serve the community that she worked with for a long time. We now have a new technology through out the school and will be embracing the Common Core. Read less

I am sad to say, I will be taking my child out of this school. Only because I liked the religious aspect now I find t to many cons to this school first the principal was fired. Okay some good changes seen after but now the vice principal was demoted then a couple of months later handed her walking papers,

And to top it all of, now 5 teachers have been given there walking papers, and we the parents are being told that our kids will have combined grade classes. To much change in one year and not for the best. Maybe the school should figure out how to bring more students instead of letting go of teachers. Best luck to the school Read less

Looks like SFA is up to it's old tricks. 4 clearly solicited positive reviews on the same day after months of inactivity and a bad review seems like the kind of fishy activity that the principal would undertake to make his school look slightly better. Make no mistake, the level of leadership from the

I look forward to next 4 positive reviews in an attempt to hide this review in the coming days, but anyone lucky enough to read this before must heed the warning that this school is a joke. Poor leadership and few qualified teachers make St. Francis of Assisi one of the worst schools a parent can choose for their child. I'm the drill team is good and the BBQ's are fun, but the level of instruction is pathetic. Read less
