What Our Parents Are Saying

My children have been nurtured intellectually and spiritually since they arrived. Friends have become family. It is truly a community. It's clear the teachers are so committed to the success of their students
Sara
Franciscan School Parent
Great experience. This is our third year at The Franciscan School and my kids love it. Everyone is friendly, the atmosphere is conducive.
Florence
Franciscan School Parent
What I love most about The Franciscan School is the community-from the students to the teachers, to the staff and the parents. Everyone is here for the right reasons-to support and encourage each other year over year.
Elizabeth
Franciscan School Parent
Our son is somewhat of an introvert and it often takes him a little while to open up. The teachers and staff really know how to connect with him and make him feel at ease! We are so blessed to have the Franciscan family in our lives.
Carla
Franciscan School Parent
The St. Francis of Assisi Catholic community has been a part of our family’s lives for over 20 years. We are thrilled that our kids now get to be a part of that community too.
Matthew
Franciscan School Parent
My daughter loves TFS! Her transition to Kindergarten was better than I could have ever imagined. We look forward to the years to come.
Jennifer
New Parent
The Franciscan School is so much more than just a school - it is a community that truly cares about my family. To have past teachers continuously ask about how my kids are doing, and to tell me how much they miss my children once they are no longer their students, reinforces just how much TFS cares about its families.
Kathryn
Long-time Parent
We have been at The Franciscan School for eight years and it is a dynamic place for students to grow. As our 8th grader prepares to graduate I can easily say that he is exceptionally well prepared for high school both in academics and also in the soft skills that are required to be successful in school and life. TFS is very intentional in developing students to become strong advocates for themselves in a loving and faith-filled environment.
Keith
Long-time Franciscan School Parent
New to The Franciscan School, our expectations have been greatly exceeded. We are proud to raise our children in such a warm, faith-filled community of talented educators.

What do you love most about the TFS community?

The TFS community really is a cohesive family that loves and supports each other. Like any family, there
are times of dispute, but the larger connection and love comes through in the end.

What do you love most about your job at TFS?

I love getting to interact with the students each day, especially as principal. There is such a difference between the kindergarten and MS years and it is great to see the kids grow, mature, and succeed over the years they are at TFS.
