    I'm a third grade bilingual teacher at Francis and I love it! The students parents staff and administrators have made my second year at Francis a smooth transition from Intermediate to Elementary. I enjoy coming to Francis every day and face the many challenges my students bring with them on a daily basis. I couldn't ask for a better school to work at.... Francis is on the NE area of Houston near Bush Airport. I love the community and all that comes with it! Every day is a new day and students remind me everyday why I became a teacher. Finally I know that I'm at a place where God wants me to be and for that I thank him every day!

    This school is a joke. They are not concerned about the kids safety at all. When I enrolled my child I told them that I had some concerns about his grades. It took them six months to test him. By this time he flunked the grade. When I try to talk to them about it it's like they do not want to hear it and always suggest me testing him for ADHD. They do not respond to emails or letters. If you want your child to learn and be safe please do not take them here!
