    "I went to SFA for two years. Before that I went to public school. I would say SFA is stronger in English (more challenging, more helpful skills/info, etc.). I would also say ENMS (public middle school) was stronger in Mathematics. It is "average" and I would probably send my child here for middle school (no bullying, religion class). I would monitor what they are teaching (morally/politically) and I would discuss the differences in what you belive in (morally) with your child as it may differ to what they are teaching. The teachers are very nice and make an effort to improve students."

    "Although my children have attended St. Francis for many years now I have made the decision to take them out this year. I had believed in the past that having my child in a spiritual based educational environment with small classes and a tight community would put them in the best position to succeed. I now believe that I was wrong, the idea that smaller classes would mean more time for my child if they fell behind was a nice thought but not a reality. The community that I once felt was the one thing that set this school aside I now believe is non existent. The values that are the reasons you send your child to catholic school for don't exist here. I would look elsewhere I know I did."

    "I have attended over six schools throught my life, and this school is by far the best. I have been going here for 4 years. All of the teachers are very nice and truly care for your future. You learn so many things while having fun at the same time. There is a new principa; this year who has allowed us to have more fun by letting us do little things like writing in colored ink pens. Also, the new principal has allowed new opportunities like new activities and events. All of the students are very nice and accepting of new students. I have had many good memories at this school, and plan to have many more. Although this is my last year, this school will ALWAYS be my favorite and remain in my heart. I love SFA!"

    "my son has been in this school since pre-k and even dispite his reading disability, he still loves school. they have gone above and beyond what they as a private school has to for my son and i feel confident in keeping him there despite the words i hear from public teacher friends ('he'll get more help in a public school')... maybe he'll get a little more help but there are many other great qualities about this school that i wouldn't be willing to trade for the world."
