St. Francis High School Reviews

Making the decision to come to Saint Francis was easily one of the best I have ever made in my life. I attended public school K-8th and I noticed a drastic change in the level of education I received between public and private. The smaller classes allowed my teachers to engage with us and form closer relationships. My favorite thing about Francis is the tight-knit community. I experienced the loss of my father while I attended Francis and I have never felt so supported in my life. Everybody came together--even people I didn't know--to make sure I was doing fine. Yes, just like any other high school Francis has its bumps in the road (hence the 4-star rating, not 5). But, it's well worth the cost and stuff you have to go through while you're there!

St. Francis in Wheaton, Illinois truly embodies Catholic values while preparing students for a very successful future. Each and every student develops a special bond with the faculty and staff of St. Francis. Additionally, the teachers truly care about each and every student, devoting every possible free moment to help with their academics. The teachers are extremely qualified and dedicated to changing the lives of their students forever. The support of the administration and guidance creates a welcoming atmosphere for everyone that steps in the building. Students graduate with the knowledge they will use for the rest of their lives.
We are fortunate to live in an area with excellent public and private schools. We chose St. Francis for our daughter for academics, spirituality, and community, and it has been an excellent choice for her. Our daughter has participated in many different things, and her confidence level has risen. The academics cover a wide range of subjects and student learning levels. There are a lot of clubs and extra-curriculars for students to explore interests like cooking, theater, etc., and the times the clubs meet are varied so as all students can have the opportunity to attend and participate. The teachers and staff are accessible for questions and help. Our experience has been that St. Francis supports the whole student, mentally and spiritually, and provides an environment that enables students to grow individually both in and out of the classroom. We feel the school prepares their students well for college, and more importantly to be good citizens and engaged.
