    "I wanted to provide a follow up since my daughter is now in 4th grade. My daughter truly loves to go to school! She is so excited to get there and misses it when the school is closed. Her academic development is taken very seriously and she thrives in this environment. She now uses the computer daily for her homework and IXL skills testing. She reads her library books completely every week and is excelling with the demanding testing that 4th grade brings. This school focuses on the child and brings out their best! We reinforce the faith-based learning at home through prayer and mass attendance. She is proud of her faith. I have a soon to be kindergartener starting in the fall and I am so excited for her to grow and learn about her faith, service and self accomplishments. Truly a wonderful school and I cannot say enough about the loving teachers! It is because of them my child excels and thrives at school! God Bless each and every one of them!"

    "My daughter started in September at St. Francis as a first grader and we are extremely happy with our decision. From the moment you enter St. Francis you are greeted with such a warm and loving sense of belonging. I believe that this feeling comes from our Principal and trickles down to all of the Teachers, Faculty, Staff, volunteers, students and families of St. Francis. Our daughter is thriving in her first grade class, academically as well as socially. If you are looking for a close knit, family oriented, school with superior academics, St. Francis is the best place for your child/children."

    "One of the best decisions I have made as a parent was to send my children to St. Francis de Sales. My children get a quality education. The teachers are well qualified and continue their education through specialty certifications or advanced degrees in education. The teachers are creative and are well equipped to bring the 21st century skills into the classroom. The teachers have given my one child extra help in certain academic areas and have readily adapted the classrooms including computer and book use to accommodate his visual impairments to enable him to succeed and be self-confident. The principal is readily accessible and is very involved on a daily basis with the children. She is in the classrooms. The children just love her and so do I. She leads and teaches her staff to create a great learning environment. She is honest and open to feedback. The entire school staff including support staff envelop the students with unconditional love, provide a safe and learning environment, and instill Christian values. You will find a close knit community that will welcome anyone into it. I work full time and am comforted daily knowing that my children are at this school."

    "One of the best decisions we made was sending our boys to St. Francis de Sales school. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with kindness and warmth. It is truly a God-centered family atmosphere. The principal, teachers and staff are wonderful. They are invested in our SFDS students and work hard to give the best education and school experience. My son has a food allergy and we have had full support from the beginning on making a safe environment for him. This has meant so much to us. If you are looking for a school that offers a great education plus a loving family atmosphere, St. Francis de Sales if the place for you."

    "St. Francis is a gem of a school. It is small and mighty. Our daughter loves going to school and thrives at SFDS. The children are compassionate, friendly and are all proud of their school. Having a doctoral degree myself, I know the education and values that are essential during these early formative years and have seen our daughter gain the attributes and strong education essential for her to carry her education through college and thereafter. Being a smaller school, it seems no child gets "lost in the shuffle" and they all get personal attention. The principal, Sr. Mary, is a warm, endearing educator who knows and loves every single student. We are more than happy with the decision to send our daughter to St. Francis and look forward to seeing her continued growth in education, morals and confidence as she grows."
