190 students in grades Kindergarten, First, and Second and a full and part-time faculty of 13 began the first year at St. Francis of Assisi School. The school had been envisioned to have three sections of each grade level. An additional grade level would be added each year until the school grew to have Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
Groundbreaking of Phase II began to add School and religious education classrooms by the Fall of 2004 to keep pace with the additional students. This phase would include the completion of the Education Center by adding a two-story addition at the east end of the complex which would include classrooms, school office, cafeteria, gymnasium, art, science, and music rooms.
School completed its plan of having grades Kindergarten through eighth grade.
St. Francis of Assisi is awarded the honor of Blue Ribbon School.
