I went to SFS from K-8, and I loved it. I made some of my closest friends there. The environment is extremely friendly, and everyone is so open and welcoming. Kids with disabilities are treated awesomely, and I rarely saw anyone get bullied. The school is accepting of every religion and race, and the ...  Read more

I went to SFS from pre-k to halfway through 6th grade before I had to move , and I can honestly say that it was the best school ever. While the school says its Episcopalian it accepts every religion, and every week at chapel we would learn about the other religions and the holidays they celebrated and ...  Read more

Our experience over nearly 4 years has ranged from excellent to average or below average. While I wouldn't want school leadership to be immediately reactive to parent concerns, I feel like the school is somewhat slower than it should be in addressing concerns and soliciting feedback from parents. We've ...  Read more

I am regularly impressed with the stellar reputation of St Francis' head of school, Barbara Porter, within the academic community. Her leadership style, commitment to high standards, and educational expertise are sought out by other school's for suggestions on how to improve. Parental engagement and ...  Read more

This school works very well for kids who will do well in most any school. there are certain kids with issues that can do well. Our experience was very poor, teachers couldn't work with our son and didn't care, no different than AISD. With the exception of 4th grade, 5th and 6th grade was a complete waste ...  Read more

Our son was very happy at St Francis all the way through 8th grade. The school excels at educating kids at both ends: gifted kids, & problem kids. The saddest thing is that there's nowhere to go after 8th grade. No private high school in Austin is as good as St Francis. St Steven's is money-conscious ...  Read more

I attended St Francis from 6th grade to 8th, and it was some of the best years of my life (: There is such diversity, and everyone there is very friendly and helpful. I've learned a lot from that school and I'm very happy that i could be a part of such a great community. Thanks St. Francis !

I have been a SFS parent for eight years and my children have had a wonderful experience. For us, it has been a utopia! Small classes, great teachers, effective administration. The on-site Reading and Language Center gave my dyslexic kids tutoring from a Certified Academic Language Specialist which ...  Read more

Amazing teachers but some of the kids do not belong in a social situation where they could do harm to other kids. St Francis seriously needs to address the behavior issues or i can't send my children back there - which would be said because the teachers are good.
