St. Francis De Sales School Ratings & Reviews
St. Francis is an amazing school. I have 2 children in the school and I am so happy I chose to send them here. The principal has started many after school programs and has constant communication with parents. I am a full time working mother, and I still feel a huge connection with the school. We receive weekly emails and have coffee with the principal every other month, in the evenings, to keep up with what is going on within the school. As a teacher myself (nyc dept of Ed), I feel St. Francis is a top of the line school. I am so happy to be able to send my children here!
This school is excellent. we learn a lot but we also have fun at the same time. the teachers are amazing. they know so much. this school gives off a very warm feeling. we have a fine discipline system and a great curriculum.
I have a son currently in 2nd grade; he also completed K and 1st at SFDS. We have been quite impressed with the curriculum, and the quality and dedication of the teachers we have had. The school is family-oriented and shares our values. We feel our son is getting a good education academically and morally. Other points: There are 25 children in his class. They have Spanish Class, Computer Class, Library. They are lacking in the Music/Arts area, however that can be outsourced as an extracurricular activity.
I currently have 1 child in the 1st grade. I disagree with the other review of overcrowded classes. Last year in kindergarten my daughter had 23 kids in her class, this year she has 27 children in her class. I think the teachers are wonderful and most importantly very involved and in the know with our children. Many friends of mine are Public School teachers and tell me that St. Francis is up to par with their curriculum.
This school is okay. The school is well kept.
