St. Francis High School was a great school for young men to get an early experience of how to prepare for college and life. It has some faculty that are excellent at their job and try to bring out the best in you and have some that could use some better upgrades, but overall, the faculty there is great. I love the wide variety of activities and sports you can participate in with most of them being open to almost anyone. Great food, a lot of work, and a even class (Senior Seminar) that prepares you for college makes this high school a great choice to set you up for a great life.

What makes a great school? To me, it is the academics. St. Francis is the type of High School that inspires students to strive for academic excellence. When I entered St. Francis, I was a mediocre student and concluded my Freshman year with a 92 average. At the end of the second quarter of my senior year, I have a 98. This arose from St. Francis's rigorous course work that provoked the amelioration in my time management and work ethic. Another crucial part is college preparation. Fundamental to this is the establishment of time management, and work ethic, which I mentioned above. In annexation, Senior Seminar guides seniors through their college applications, scholarship searches, and teaches fundamental life skills such as budgeting, and writing checks. The culmination of St. Francis' distinctive academic curriculum and extraordinary college preparation establishes a high school that is superior to most others and forges students to crave for academic prosperity.
St Francis High School is an excellent school; much better alternative to the surrounding public schools. This school will certainly prepare your son for the future, as long as he is willing to comply.
