The Franciscan School leadership and teachers are fantastic!!! The teachers care so deeply about their students and are committed, knowledgeable and loving. We are incredibly grateful and blessed to be in such caring environment.

"The Franciscan School is significantly better than other private religious base (Episcopal) schools we attended in the Raleigh area. We love TFS and so do our kids. The level of education is ""top notch"" and the teachers and staff care about the education of the students. TFS is the best school in the area."

"TFS is a good school if you have mainstream kids. If, however, you have a child with ADHD, high-functioning autism, learning disorders, etc., then you will have problems at TFS and should decidedly find another school. My son was abruptly dismissed from 6th grade due to ""engagement"" issues. He had zero behavioral issues and no discipline problems. Since his dismissal, we've learned of and even met other families who had a similar experience at TFS, meaning their children were dismissed by the administration for not fitting into the standard model of a student.For a Franciscan school to scrape off students who need the most assistance is both callous and highly hypocritical for a community whose focus is supposedly social service and educating the ""whole"" student. Moreover, TFS is subsidized by St. Francis of Assisi, which consists of highly-affluent parishioners. If it were a focus of the Church and the community, the school could absolutely support the children of its own community who need additional support. The teachers my son had were wonderful, supportive, and accommodated him to the best of their ability given the atmosphere that the administration has established. The real problem with TFS is the administration. I find them to be untrustworthy, incompetent, and obtuse. As an example, we were told when my son was dismissed that the school does not support retention after 3rd grade. We know this to be a lie. Two of my son's classmates were retained and kept in 5th grade. Why the lie??I've seen similar feedback in other comments here and I agree with another person's comments about the ""power families."" If you're one of the wealthy who donate to the school, your views are amplified. If, however, you are a ""regular"" parent and have criticism or want to change things, that view is not well-received."

Our children have attended this school for over five years. This is a true community whose administration, staff, and teachers all have the same goal-to educate the whole child for the real world in a loving and respectful learning environment,

"Average only because of the lower grades because most teachers are good. A few bad ones, a few show way too much favoritism. Middle grades would get a bad or terrible.I never noticed the bullying although a lot of what they call bullying is just the kids of the right families getting their feelings hurt. The other kids are always at fault when it relates to those families. If they complain about something first, you're screwed. You will NEVER convince the administration that you're right. Mrs. Bigelow is great but the middle school administration does not want to hear complaints or suggestions and will always take the side of the teacher no matter what. The teachers talk too harsh to the kids. The younger ones are so arrogant and feel like they can do whatever they want and the older ones should have retired 5 years ago. If one of the right parents complains, they can get their kid made captain of some team, can get discipline changed, can get grades raised, can get extensions of due dates. No one cares about the kid who did their homework and turned it in on time. But let Little Johnny not be able to finish because his family was off skiing for a week and he'll get special privileges.If you notice in the comments, the tone changed about 3 years ago and I can see that. Too many parents involved, too much favoritism. Too many things scheduled that do not allow working parents to participate in. Who can go to ""tea with the principal"" at 10am? I wish the administration and parish would listen to ALL the parents and not let certain families dictate what they do. All of our money spends the same."
