Saint-Francis Elementary School sits on the highest point of land in Richmond overlooking the Saint-Francis River. It was built on the original site of the St. Francis College which was established in 1855 as a classical college for men. A dedicated, hard-working staff encourages responsibility and promotes lifelong learning by working to develop each child’s individual potential. The focus on high academic standards and positive social skills, the enhancement provided by extra-curricular activities, and a partnership with parents, combine to provide a unique learning experience.
