St. Francis High School - Salesian College Preparatory Reviews

I love St. Francis. I have gone there since I was a freshman and my brother went there before me, and both enjoyed it. The school from the start has felt like home and has helped me grow into a better person, leader, and student. Every time I had a hard time, they were there to support me, and really have helped me break out of my shell. Sure it has its flaws, every school does, but honestly I don’t really mind them. I enjoy the school and wish it the best.

St. Francis High School is committed to providing a college preparatory education. The school welcomes all students and provides a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities. The rotating block schedule ensures that each student succeeds in class even with a rigorous work load. The teachers are fantastic! They have flexible hours so that you can meet with them if you do not understand a concept. They are willing to sacrifice their time to make sure you are prepared for class. Each teacher respects all students and it truly feels like you are a part of a family. In addition, St. Francis' mission is to teach the works of Don Bosco and what it means to be Salesian. St. Francis is a unique high school and I overjoyed to be a part of it.
St. Francis High School is truly a school that prioritizes the overall success of the students. Through its four pillars, school, church, home, and playground, the students and whole Salesian family is allowed to excel.
