What Our Parents Say
St. Francis provided my children with the best overall quality education in a superior academic, spiritual and social environment. St. Francis has a proven track record of challenging its students in the classroom as well as providing them with opportunities outside the classroom and beyond the town of Sonoma in sports programs, science fairs, art/writing competitions, geography bees, spelling bees, Academic Decathlon, etc. Students who have graduated from St. Francis have gone on to the local high school as well as Marin Academy, Cardinal Newman High School, Justin Siena High School and Sonoma Academy. These students have gone on to excel at colleges, including Stanford, West Point, and many of the UCs. St. Francis provides a nurturing environment to all its students and my children would not dream of going anywhere else!
As a graduate of St. Francis Solano School, my husband and I chose St. Francis for our own children because we believe in the importance of Catholic, faith and value-based education. We want our children to learn more than “reading, writing & arithmetic.” We want them also to learn about God’s love for them, the importance of loving and giving compassion and forgiveness to others, and community. Although I believe it is primarily our job as parents to teach these religious values to our children, we want the support and enrichment of our parish school community in educating the mind, body, and spirit. I owe much of my personal and professional accomplishments to the foundation I received through my education at St. Francis and the life-long friendships I formed here. We want the same for our children.
