“We transferred our son to St. Francis in 6th grade from a Corona public school.  We were looking for smaller class size, a safe social environment for his middle school years, and a Catholic faith-based community.  We found all of this and so much more.  The staff and students were so warm and welcoming.  A mentor family helped answer our initial questions and introduced us to families during the Welcome Night for parents.  Our son was assigned a buddy, which was wonderful, but in addition all of the students in his class of 18 went out of their way to help him during the transition.  If I could rate his teacher 10 stars I would!  She is everything you could ask for in terms of patience, academic preparation, and open communication.  We have been extremely impressed with the integration of technology (iPads, Mac computers, supplemental online programs including typing).  For parents like us that enjoy being involved, there are numerous opportunities for every area of interest.  Coming from a school that lacked communication, it was refreshing to experience daily/weekly direct email and phone broadcast communication by the Principal.  We wish we would have started our son at St. Francis much sooner, and highly recommend this school to families looking for a school that provides exceptional academics in a nurturing environment.” - Meichelle C.

“St. Francis of Assisi school in Yorba Linda is the tri-parish school for San Antonio de Padua, St. Martin de Porres, and Santa Clara de Asis.  I have 3 children who attend.  The school provides a well rounded experience where I believe our children are being prepared not only for high school, but also as young adults.  Presidents at Mater Dei, Servite, and Rosary are former St. Francis grads!  The teachers and faculty provide an excellent educational and spiritual environment.  The curriculum is faith based and rich in technology (ipads, smart boards, etc).  And I love the attention our kids get because of the lower teacher to student ratio.  Plus there's a ton of extra curricular, such as sports, band, and community service.  Join the St. Francis community.  We did.” - Virgil Ross B.

“My children both attended this school for 10 years from pre-k to 8th grade and are now excelling in high school but beyond the excellent academic preparation they received, I will be forever grateful for the spiritual enrichment we all received being a part of this outstanding community.” - Sheila P.

“I have been a parent of a St. Francis of Assisi student for 2 years now and there are just not enough good things I can say about this school. The faculty and staff are fully invested in the growth and academic excellence of each student. They offer a very warm and friendly environment that nurtures our children as a whole.  If you are looking for a very well-rounded Catholic education, sense of community and a place where your child feels valued and accepted, then this is the place to be!” - Lori V.

“St. Francis is a wonderful school. We moved across the county mid year last year so we were looking for a new school for our 3rd and 5th graders. The staff, students and families were very welcoming!  Our children had a buddy assigned to them the first day of school, which put them at ease. As parents, we love having our children at a faith-based school. The first time I attended a school mass my heart was filled with love. It's great to see the kids taking part in the masses. We also love the class size. There are so many wonderful things about St. Francis there is just not enough space to write them all. If you are looking for a school in the area I would definitely recommend this school.” - Lesley M.

“My children have attended St. Francis Catholic School in Yorba Linda for four years.  We could not be more pleased with our experience.  The teachers are excellent, and the administration is top notch.  Our principal, Mr. Tom Waszak, was previously the principal and J. Serra Catholic High School and is an outstanding leader.  One of great benefits at St. Francis is that there are two classrooms for every grade level.  Unlike many other Catholic schools, the children are not with the exact same children each year, which makes it nice for the kids.  We feel blessed to be a part of the St. Francis community, and we are continually impressed by the quality of the parents and children affiliated with the school.  It is an amazing place!” - Katie W.
