Love this school! Barbara Porter is a wonderful principal and our teachers this year were fabulous. A relatively diverse school academically, but the one thing all the parents and teachers have in common...they all want to be there and expect and receive the very best. We have 3 kids at St Francis and came from another (smaller) private school in Austin that has been falling apart at the seams for many years. I wish we hadn't listened to their disparaging words about St Francis. We found none of them to be true. And Barbara Porter had many opportunities to take the low road like this other school did. She never came close. I've never met a more positive, kind and intelligent leader of a school. An excellent school all around.
Pros: low student and teacher turnover, qualified teachers, great academics
Cons: uhhh...maybe the building isn't so pretty? Couldn't think of much to say for cons.
