What Our Parents are Saying

One measure of how well we are fulfilling our Mission is what our parents, students, and alumni say about us.  Here are a few examples:

“When we were relocating to the Licking County area, selecting a school for our son was of the utmost importance and we chose St. Francis de Sales Elementary! The teachers, staff, administration, and students have whole-heartedly welcomed our family and most importantly our son. In addition to providing an education founded on the Catholic Faith, SFDS offers a strong sense of community and academic excellence. There are high expectations for students both in and outside of the classroom. Students demonstrate respect for others and are proud of their school and its tradition. We have been pleased with our experience and feel blessed every day!”


Tonya and Jason Sherburne – parents of St. Francis Alumni


“All three of our kids attended and graduated from St. Francis De Sales Elementary School and we’re so thankful for the education they received. I grew up in Catholic Schools but my husband did not. I knew the benefits, but he never doubted our choice to send them here. What we find so amazing is the community and prayer in the classroom, demonstrating how God is part of everything we do or know. Our kids learned discipline and respect for each other and their teachers. This education/spiritual foundation will be with them forever as they have grown into wonderful young adults. Thank you St. Francis for being THE BEST!”

Maribeth Peddicord – parent of St. Francis de Sales Alumni


“St. Francis de Sales is so much more than a school for our children, it is a family. Since we are not originally from the area, we rely on those in our community as family. That is what St. Francis has given to us and our children. A family of faith that are role models to all of us. Our children love going to school and we love knowing that they are being brought closer to God each day by the people around them. People that care for them as if they were their own family and a family we are so blessed to be a part of.”

Jennifer Smith – Mother of Jackson (3rd grader)


“We chose St. Francis for Anthony primarily because we wanted him to have the experience of a faith-based education grounded in the knowledge of morals, character, and love of God. Small class size and dedicated teachers support a positive learning environment and have helped him grow and develop spiritually and socially as well as academically. Our community is very welcoming and freely volunteer their time, talent and treasures. What a blessing it is knowing our child is surrounded by such caring mentors both inside and outside the classroom. “
