High-quality, Christ-centered Elementary School Education

St. Francis of Assisi School has a long tradition of academic excellence provided in a safe, caring, Christian environment. Our student body is comprised of children whose parents and grandparents attended St. Francis School as well as students from families just joining our school community. We welcome and involve both old and new families.

Our students have many opportunities to shine. We have high academic standards and provide the support necessary to meet and exceed those standards. With our strong focus on volunteering, our students learn the importance of service. Our goal is to build in our students a strong foundation that will support them throughout their lives.

We measure our success in different ways. Our students perform well on standardized and criteria based tests. They are involved in many activities and provide hundreds of hours of service to others. From all indications, our students are well prepared spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically when they leave St. Francis of Assisi school. Our 2017 graduates are now at Raisbeck Aviation High School, Seattle Prep, Kennedy Catholic, O'Dea, Holy Names Academy, Seattle Christian, Mt. Rainier High School, and Highline High School to name a few.
