Future Family & Raise Right ~ “Ingenious programs”

“Growing up I personally experienced public and private schooling, whereas my husband only experienced public schooling. I knew I wanted our children to attend a private school and thankfully my husband was on board. I reached out to St. Francis when our 1st son was only 1 (a little overeager as a first time parent, I know!) and was so impressed with the communication and feedback I received from the school. Sheila Clancy even helped us get set up for the Future Families and signed us up for the Raise Right program to help start earning tuition credit through the purchase of gift cards (an ingenious program). From Mrs. Lanich in Kindergarten, who assured me it was her job to teach my child to read, to Mrs. Lanager in First Grade, who makes my kiddo excited to hop on the “Lanager Bus” and go to school everyday, to all the other teachers and staff in between, any parent would be hard pressed to find a better school. St. Francis is truly a family focused school with an excellent education and a strong religious foundation (thank you Miss Bungo!). I could write a novel about St. Francis singing all my praises but I’m hoping you’ll take the leap of faith and see for yourself! You won’t be disappointed.”

The best choice…the only choice

“St. Francis was not just the best choice, but the only choice for our family! Aside from the strong academic programs, the school has the most caring teachers and staff striving to see each and every student achieve their full potential. The fun, family-friendly atmosphere and the core values taught to our children are second to none. Our children always feel safe, happy and are eager to go school each day. We would proudly recommend St. Francis to ALL parents in our community.”

Strong foundation for learning, core values and sense of community

“Our daughter is in kindergarten at Saint Francis School. We have been a part of the Saint Francis family since she was 3 years old. We send our child to school every day knowing she is safe and well cared for. The school offers a strong academic and religious curriculum. In addition, students are exposed to numerous extracurricular opportunities and activities. The teachers communicate with parents regularly and have each child’s best interest at heart. The small class sizes are ideal for one-on-one attention and individualized learning. The entire school has a close-knit family like atmosphere. As a parent with a child in SFS we highly recommend the school for its strong foundation for learning, core values and sense of community.”

In a world where so much can be wrong, Saint Francis School is doing everything right.

“We are beyond thankful and extremely grateful for St. Francis School and everything it provides for our son. We value the caring staff, their unwavering commitment, and the positive instructional environment that has fostered his growth in his faith-based education.  In the past years, we have seen him thrive in academics, faith, and beliefs, providing him with comfortability and confidence through their caring and nurturing ways; we feel truly blessed.  The school offers a family-friendly atmosphere where the students feel safe; they are loved, and students are high-achieving scholars and passionate leaders.  The school is second-to-none with providing structured academic classes, as well as instilling core values to their children.  Students are not only educated and challenged in the classroom, but they are also learning life lessons that give them a strong moral and ethical foundation to assist in making them kind, caring, considerate individuals.  Gratitude is what we feel as we leave our son in the hands of such amazing people, who demonstrate so much compassion and provide a safe learning environment with religious reflections.  In a world where so much can be wrong, Saint Francis School is doing everything right.  SFS is undoubtedly educating minds and empowering souls.”

A special feeling and blessing

“There aren’t too many places in the world today where you can send your child and believe in his safety, be comfortable with what happens in his school, know he is being cared for and loved, and is able to live out his faith…and all the while being well educated! It is a special feeling and blessing to know that a place like St. Francis exists where the faculty and staff are truly there for all the right reasons!”

Invest in your children

“I have been a St. Francis School parent for 18 years and commend the school for my children’s high honors, manners, accomplishments, big hearts, study habits and love for each other. The school was exactly what we expected and was a great foundation for such young minds. The teachers and staff aren’t just there to do a job, the love and compassion they showed my children was a selling point I shared with other soon-to-be SFS parents. If you want to invest in anything, it should be your children, and SFS is the best investment hands down.”
