1. What does St. Francis offer to my child?
Ours is a faith based (Catholic) educational community. We offer a safe environment, a caring staff, excellent teaching, high standards, cutting edge technology, and an environment where we show warmth, hospitality, good humor and joy.
2. I hear a great deal about bullying. Does St. Francis have a problem with this?
Every school has some children who are not adjusted socially. Here at St. Francis we have much to proud of with a student body which generally treats each other very nicely. We have several programs designed to teach socialization skills and we work diligently with those who are having problems. Are we perfect? No, but as I say we are proud of our students and how they treat each other.
3. Do we accept non-Catholic students? Yes, but! Because we are a Catholic Faith-based school we have to provide spaces for our Catholic students first. After that we happily accept students from other faiths, and not only Christian. Our belief is that students from other faiths can broaden our understanding of others and eliminate bigotry and ignorance. Also we as humans learn where we stand by seeing where others stand.
The only thing we ask of non-catholic students and their families is that they respect our faith and traditions. All students are required to participate in the faith-life of the school.
