St. Francis of Assisi School opened its doors to the Silver Lake community on September 6, 1938. Staffed by the Sisters of Notre Dame, the school began with an enrollment of ninety-two (92) students in eight grades. A kindergarten was added in September of 1983 and a transitional kindergarten was opened in August of 2012. Presently St. Francis of Assisi School is staffed by qualified teachers and hard working administrative support. St. Francis of Assisi School also offers an after-school care program for our parents who work and are unable to pick their children until 6pm.
The school is located outside of Downtown Los Angeles with a student population composed mostly of Latino and Filipino students, with a small percentage of other various ethnic groups. The school draws from over twenty parishes in the area, with some families commuting from the San Fernando Valley and as far as West Covina.
Our school is currently undergoing innovative changes in our curriculum that will lead the way to a focus on individualized instruction and the success of all students.
