St. Francis High School Reviews

Saint Francis overall was a great place to go to high school. The facilities were amazing, the teachers were great (mostly), and as a current college student, I feel so prepared to tackle university courses and exams. I was a participant in the theater program at Saint Francis, and (for the most part), I had a great experience. As a non Catholic at a Catholic school, I felt that the religion classes gave me another perspective in which I view the world. I had a wonderful time at Saint Francis, and I believe that my high school education is the main reason why I am thriving at NYU. Thank you Saint Francis!

It was a fun school, but the administration babies its students too much. Depending on the class, the teachers can be great. I have had some amazing classes and teachers (especially AP Government), but many of the general curriculum classes like Religion can be extraordinarily underwhelming. The school could definitely work on its diversity. Albeit, St. Francis is in northern California which is not a very diverse area, but the school still has some work to do. Ultimately, I am extremely thankful for my experience at St. Francis and would definitely recommend it to any middle schoolers looking for a quality, reasonably priced education.
Saint Francis offers a welcoming community and great academics programs. There are many challenging AP and honors programs available, as well as many clubs and other extracurriculars. I have had a few poor teachers, but they are far outweighed by the good ones I've had. Those teachers promote the idea of community and build trust between students and themselves and are more than happy to answer any questions. Collaboration also gives more chances to communicate with teachers.
