Considering this is suppose to be a Catholic school , pne would presume that it would welcome all of God's children. As well , I would say that the school's mission statement or / principal's letter statement which states that their staff recognizes the individuality of every child and strives to encourage ...  Read more

Our son has been going there for 2 years. The staff is really attentive and focused on what matters, his education.

Saint Francis Academy has not been a great experience for my kids. Although my child spent 8 years in the school from pre-school, my family is still finding it difficult to adjust. Everyone seems nice from outside but only God knows what's going on from the inside. I was a personal disappointing experience ...  Read more
