    "St. Francis Solano School - overall the school has a lovely community feel. We love the buddy system that is incorporated throughout the school curriculum. All the way the students support each other - I have seen nothing like it from any school before. As a previous parent has mentioned the 2nd grade is poorly run with a very unorganized teacher who although means well isn't able to stimulate the advanced students. The principal is lovely but unfortunately lets it up to the parents to fight their good fight. I would love to see her step in more and play the leadership role she can. Kindergarten and 1st grade where excellent although I do question the amount of minders allowed in one class and am concerned moving forward about the numbers. This school is so lovely that it could really be even better."

    "Strong science and math programs in middle school, robotics elective, contest opportunities in areas such as speech, writing, math, science fair and academic decathlon, outdoor ed., art docents, involved parent community, supportive and involved administration, students learning about caring for the environment, iPad integration in just about all subject areas,...... Need I say more! We love St. Francis!"

    "Our school is Saint Francis Solano in Sonoma. There are good teachers, mixed with some unbelievably poor quality teachers. Getting thru second grade last year was devastating for most the students, as the teacher was simply incompetent academically (literally couldn't teach 2nd grade curriculum) and professionally (students were diminished by her). Sadly our child had the same teacher twice as she moved up from kindergarten. Compare that with another one of our children who missed her and has blossomed at the school. I can't warn parents enough to avoid 2nd grade, I'd even suggest they pull their kids for a year and come back. Otherwise the environment is safe, the children are respectful and the parents are very involved and good willed."

    "My family loves St. Francis. My three children count St. Francis as their second home and part of our extended family. The campus is safe, the teachers and faculty are all professional and give so much to the school. The parent volunteers are equally as giving of their time and their level of commitment is outstanding. Everyone works really hard to make St. Francis a great school for our kids. My oldest daughter, who is now a freshman, scored in the 90th percentile of 9th graders in the country. To me, this a testament to the school and all the skills she acquired as a student at St. Francis Solano. Also, as a parent, I have met some of my closest friends at St. Francis. Families who will be forever friends to me and my family."

    "St Francis provides my children with the best overall quality eduacation in a superior academic, spiritual and social environment. St. Francis has a proven track record of challenging its students in the classroom as well as providing them with opportunities outside the classroom and beyond the town of Sonoma in sports programs, science fairs, art/writing competitions, geography bees, spelling bees, Academic Decathlon, etc. Students who have graduated from St. Francis have gone on to the local high school as well as Marin Academy, Cardinal Newman/Ursuline High School, Justin Siena High School, and Sonoma Academy. These students have gone on to excel at colleges, including Stanford, West Point, and many of the UCs. St. Francis provides a nurturing environment to all its students and my children would not dream of going anywhere else!"
