    "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 students there are great as well. The closeness of the teachers and students provides for a really great learning experience, and much of the teaching is done unconventionally (in a good way). Some of the middle school academics could be improved on, but the amazing teachers made me feel prepared for high school. I can say going to this school was one of the best experiences of my life, because of the sense of family I felt with the community there and the friends I made."

    "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 how they did that. Even after I left St.Francis when I came back to Austin I would go back to St.Francis because I felt so at home. The teachers really care about you, if you're having a hard time they'll help you out in every way possible, and if you're finding it to easy they will try to make it more challenging. St. Francis is perfect for any type of student whether they are a normal student or if they have learning disabilities or even physical ones too. In my grade we had a severely autistic child who couldn't speak really, but we all loved him so much. We were all really sad when he left. Another thing is they don't put up with cattiness or bullying. They will ask you to stop , nicely, and if you continue to have bad behavior they will not hesitate to expel you. Either way,St. Francis A+++++."

    "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 seen this especially in the lower grades, where there has been a lot of turnover (teachers and students) over the last few years. As our child moves into the upper middle school, we are much more comfortable and have much more confidence in the teachers. We've seen student to teacher ratios of 15 or 16 to one, which is different than the 10-1 listed on this site, but still excellent."

    "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 appreciation is also high comparatively. Considering her length of tenure, its refreshing to have a head of school that is in touch with the needs of her students and current teaching practices. She and the teaching staff also focus on instilling strong values, virtues and character building of the students as well as academics."

    "Our child attended lower middle school at St Francis and it was a wonderful and highly rewarding experience for her. Under the guidance of a devoted and in-touch head of school and a rare gem of a lower middle school coordinator, dedicated faculty, and awesome staff, we were confident that our daughter's education -- both academic and social -- would be stellar (and it was). No school is perfect for every kid, but for our child is was amazing. The minimal landscaping outside the school reflects the school's priorities -- keeping tuition reasonable for everyone, and I love that (although a little work on the entrance and egress pathways could be improved-- and there's certainly the parental human resources to come up with a solution to the circulation maze outside the front entrance, hint, hint)."
