The DeSales culture and community sets students up for success! While the academics are challenging, the many clubs and activities help balance out the work load. The opportunities for community service are part of the everyday life and we can live out our faith each and every day. Made great friends here - especially loved the Band and Drama Department. Go Stallions!

I liked St. Francis DeSales high school. They provided a great education and prepared you for the rigorous college academic experience. There are areas, such as resources that they could have changed. For instance most schools let their students go off campus to participate in college classes at local community colleges or state colleges, but DeSales is a closed campus. That is what prevented me from giving them a higher rating in several areas such as college readiness, academics, and resources. We were provided with a lot of AP classes, but many times students could not enroll due to classroom capacity. If students were allowed off campus to take actual college classes, this wouldn't have been an issue.
Faith, Family, Tradition. That's what my school is all about. I wouldn't change a thing except maybe adding air conditioning!
