9 Parent Reviews for St. Francis Of Assisi Elementary School
St. Francis Elementary is a wonderful place for children to learn. The teachers are excellent. The 6th grade teacher earned her Ph.D - and no she did not ask the kids to address her as "Doctor XXXX". A very warm, nurturing environment that pushes the students academically but somehow manages not
... Read more to stress them out while doing so. The principal and her staff are wonderful. Don't assume that all Catholic elementary schools in Sacramento are the same, because I investigated several and found that they are not. This is a very special place and you can feel secure in your decision to send your child to school here. The 8th graders consistently move on to their "first choice" high schools very well prepared. St. Francis has a very diverse student body. Read less

One of the best schools hands down. We moved from Davis where it seemed like we couldn't get a school that cared about students at all. I know, ironic right? We came to this school a bit skeptical. We've been there for about 4 years and it's been great. Stephanie Pierson is the office manager and I
... Read more personally think the school would fall down without her. 99% of the staff is amazing with an occassional member I could do without. The only negative thing I can say is that the principle change from last year to this year has been the difference. Last years principal (Stephanie Powers) was amazing. I've never seen a princaipal who loved the children so much, definitely not in any public shcools I ever went to. This year the new principal seems slightly unfriendly and more into the business side of the school instead of the atmosphere. Luckily for me I don't have to deal with her very often. Besides that, this school is a great match for almost any child. Read less

This is more than a school - it's an extended family. The staff works hard to give the children a great education, and to make sure that all kids have the best chances to learn. It's also obvious that staffers care about each student & want to help them achieve their goals.

My daughter is currently an 8th Grade student at St. Francis and she has had such a wonderful experience here. I am so blessed that I found this school for her. And really sad that we are leaving this year for high school. It has been an extended family to her and us. She has attended St. Franis since
... Read more Kindergarten. I have been a part of many private schools with my older son and unfortunately never tried this school for him but I see such a difference now with my daughter coming here. She is a straight A student, she is curious about life, respectful, loving, positive , great self esteem, growing leadership skills and enjoys coming to school. And most of all she is aware about doing the right thing and being ethical. I credit these traits alot to this school and the committment of this staff. She hates missing one day of school and I have to force her to stay home when she is not feeling well. The staff, teachers and principal, Ms. Powers, are phenomenal and obviously not teaching here for the money but more so for their dedication to our students. I am more than willing to talk to anyone about this school and share my experience, please feel free to call me (916)531-0560. Read less

Amazed by a school that actually feels like a family. From the first day meeting with the principal she made us feel welcomed and important. The staff are amazing and truly have the best interest of the children at stake. It values the parents contribution to their child's education and has expectations
... Read more that hold parents accountable. St. Francis is not a short term school, they are looking out for the long term educational goal. How can they best prepare the child for High School and beyond, meanwhile creating a balance between academics and social skills. I viewed many private schools before making the choice of where to send my children and I am very happy with St. Francis regardless where the campus may be, the heart of St. Francis follows the students!!

This is an excellent school on every level, beginning with the principal who is warm, smart, and fair.

Horrible school. Perfect extension program. My child is doing very well at another Catholic school, after pulling them from this awful place. I watched my child go from an intellectually curious, confident child, into a defeated and withdrawn victim. I spent many sleepless nights worried about the
