This school was a great environment. At the time, I thought there were some strict teachers and some fun teachers, but all of them were interested in teaching. People forget that parents set the foundation of school learning. In the beginning, I was raised by one parent, then another for my second half at de Sales. My performance skyrocketed in the school when under better parental guidance and supervision. It was a great school for me. From falling asleep in class to later winning scholarships to high schools, I held the same opion that the school was full of caring and intelligent people.

St. Francis DeSales still offers a good education. My daughter graduated from there with honors two years ago. She is doing well in high school and taking Honors and AP classes. It is my opinion that she is doing well because of the foundation established at St. Francis De Sales.

Currently, my son is attending St. Francis De Sales. As a 1st grader, he is receiving homework assignments of mathematics, phonics, reading comprehension, etc. He is required to read at least 20 minutes a night. So far, he is progressing nicely and appears to be following in his sister's footsteps.

All in all, the St. Francis De Sales education is worth the money.

Cons: dissrespectful

This school is a huge waist of money! It has a great rep, because once a upon a time it was a good school. However, under the new leadership the quality of the school has declined. The teachers are not certified or qualified to run a classroom. Most of the teachers can not manage their classrooms. The communication is non-existent. Trying to contact the principal or any of the teachers is close to impossible. When you do get a response it is usually condescending and pompous. Science and History takes a back seat to Religion courses which are over emphasized. St. Francis De Sales has turned into the typical Philadelphia Catholic School; all issues are swept under the rug. The parish is money hungry. Mostly importantly, there isn??t any diversity in the staff. The school is majority African American, yet there is only one African American teacher. Nepotism overrides diversity.

Cons: unprofessional and rude

They take your money while their teachers go through a tough time and they expect you to be understanding while your money is cashed and your child is left with an aide for a month. Their communication is horrible although they are a good school....I don't like that part of their organization.

Pros: Stable and consistent environment

Cons: Teacher absentism rate high for K when kids need the foundation, No smart boards, PTA is ran by the same person for years who is like a dicator....it should be committee according to grades...
