  • I, a student of St. Francis Parish School, believe that it is an amazing school that teaches children of all ages what is expected of them. At this school, you do get marked down for doing things such as not turning in homework assignments on time, or cheating on a test. The only reason that I mark this school as an A (rather than an A+) is because I believe that they are not as up to par as other schools throughout the year in the subject of math (only applies to some teachers/grades!) My step-sister attends another school (public) and they are slightly ahead in math-this levels out towards the end of the year- but my school, St. Francis, is far ahead of her school, Patriot, in the subjects of English, Literature, Science, and obviously Religion. We also learn much more in our computer lab period. We learn with a typing program, and how to operate systems such as Excel, Powerpoint, and making brochures compared to her school playing games the whole period! I very much enjoy this school, and I hope that if you are searching for a school for your child, that you consider allowing your child to come to this friendly, academic environment.
