Why The Franciscan School?

The Franciscan School is committed to developing compassionate life-long learners who incorporate faith into their education. We offer a nurturing environment where children can grow academically in an innovative and challenging environment while learning the importance of providing kindness and service to others.

TFS is a fully-accredited elementary and middle school for students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. We integrate high-tech educational tools and high academic standards into the classroom, providing educational excellence inclusive of the diverse learning styles of all children. In 2011, we received the National Blue Ribbon School Award in recognition of our student’s academic excellence.

Educator Spotlight

First Grade Teacher, Sue Burdette (in red) with her family.
What do you love most about the TFS community?

I love the fact that we begin each day at Morning Prayer as one big family. It’s wonderful to look around our school and see all of the students and the family members who are present taking part in this special prayer. It is also so incredible that we empower even the youngest of our students to lead our school in Morning Prayer.
Tell us one thing that most people would not know about you?

I come from a large family and have six sisters and two brothers. Although I am the sixth child, and therefore most of my siblings were older than me, I never hesitated to “take charge” and step into the role of teacher when we played school as kids. I guess I always knew that I was destined to become a teacher!
