2 reviews for St Francis De Sales High School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on August 17, 2009
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Terrible school for the number of special academic programs - no music/band (sure, there is a band class but no overall competing band); no drama; no economics (kids need to learn to cook and sew and this should be standard); racial incidents are covered up by administration ("Oh, those were not gunshots!"); and the school caters more to boys sports than girls sports.

    Teachers are too old and a new school of knowledge needs to be brougt to SFDS.

    Good school for working with you on tuition problems.
