I cannot say enough great things about St. Francis of Assisi Elementary school. Since our son transferred in 4th grade it has truly been the best decision we have made for him. The solid academics were enhanced by the addition of the International Baccalaureate program and have created so many new opportunities for learning for students. We have also enjoyed the strong sense of community and the school’s commitment to creating a safe and healthy environment for each child. When we leave next year after 8th grade we will truly miss the family that St. Francis has been for us these past several years.  You could not make a better choice of schools in the Sacramento area - Brenda (Parent of a 7th Grader) April 2021
