St. Francis High School Reviews

We are relatively new to the Chicago area and chose St. Francis on the recommendation of some middle school parents. It has been a wonderful fit for our daughter. The academics are rigorous and our daughter routinely does a few hours of homework each evening, which is what we wanted. The teachers are up to date on technology use and all students have a surface pro and use One Note extensively. But in addition to the academics St. Francis has a wonderful welcoming culture. Our daughter has so far tried two new sports and the play. Everyone is kind and accepting. The junior and senior girls are wonderful role models and really take the lead in showing the girls what it is to be a Catholic woman in the 21st century: kind and gracious but strong in academics and activities. A wonderful choice!

I graduated in 2020 after attending all four years. I made sure that I would come back to leave a review. I loved attending St. Francis and made many close friends that I'm sure I will keep in touch with. The course load was flexible and could be adjusted to an easier or more extreme course load. I was invested in many clubs and sports. I felt that there is a wide variety of clubs catering to different personalities. Over time I realized why alumni loved it and why I felt Francis became home. In my experiences St. Francis really provided a sense of community. I believe that anyone's mental health should be taken seriously, and I felt like junior and senior year retreats really help with mental health. Both retreats are powerful, but Kairos (senior year retreat) was almost life changing and really changed my outlook on life. My final review on Francis is that overtime society changes and uses more technology. St. Francis adapts very well, being a Microsoft Test School.
As a senior getting ready to graduate, I can attest to how great of a school St. Francis is. I have spent four years here, and I've loved every minute of it. Not only is the education great, but the people are so kind, intelligent, and inspiring. I have met some incredible teachers along the way, as well as devoted and hard-working staff members, and finally, have made some lifelong friends. St. Francis pays close attention to keeping their teachers, students, and staff happy and healthy, and I really appreciate that. The atmosphere of St. Francis is always positive, and the community really does give you a sense of family.
