    "We are relatively new at St Frances Cabrini (our daughter started in pre-K and has now completed almost 2 years at the school), but we couldn't be happier with the school. It is a small, faith- and community- centered school, which instills good values as well as a great education. In my experience, the teachers are excellent - they form strong relationships with the students and provide top-quality education in a nurturing environment (again, we've experienced Pre-k and Kinder!). The principal seems to be an inspiring leader. She is warm and friendly towards parents and students, and is actively involved in all aspects of the school. Initially, the Scrip and volunteer-hours commitment seemed a little daunting; but in reality it is very achievable. The only slight negative we have, is the frequent activities and fund-raising that require monetary donation. That said, for a private school, the fees are relatively low and the school must cover its costs somehow! Short of a major personal life-change that would force us away from the area, I would imagine that we will be at St Frances Cabrini until our kids out-grow it."

    "Class sizes are 36 or pushing that & academics are not nearly as strong as the were 5 years ago. The child is no longer taught, but rather the class is. All 36 students (72 for each grade as there are 2 classes/grade) need to be on the same page at all times. Even "advanced" groups are taught the same thing as the "regular" class but just given more problems to do -really, shouldn't the kids who don't understand the work be doing more problems to help them understand? If a new teacher with fresh ideas comes in, they are paired with an "experienced" teacher who has been at the school forever who has complete domain over any new, possibly helpful, thoughts or ideas. If you're looking for a standard, average, ok education that will teach your kid how to get into high school, then SFC is just fine. If you want a school to teach your child, will be ready for high school & who will be capable of succeeding in high school & beyond, then keep looking."

    "Saint Francis Cabrini offers a safe environment for students to learn. We appreciate the small school, intimate feel where students and teachers get to know one another. The academics are rigorous and challenging and there are incredible field trips and on-campus events that make learning relevant. We especially like the strong emphasis in the middle school years on service. The students do many wonderful activities to help others via organized events at school and in the community at-large. It's felt that the study and preparation skills our son is being given will help him easily transition into a college prep high school environment."

    "Our son started at SFC in middle school and absolutely loves it. The staff and teachers are amazing and he is thriving in their warm and nurturing environment. Academically they are solid and they are doing a great job of preparing him for a private high school. We have looked at many other private schools in the area and we highly recommend this one."

    "My family had a terrible experience at SFC. I would never recommend SFC to any parent. The children are put under a lot of pressure and the expectations are not developmentally appropriate. They are not accepting of all children and do not believe all children can learn. They only accept children who fit in a certain box, this is a direct quote from the previous principal."
