How large is the school?
Currently St. Francis DeSales High School hosts 825 students. A typical incoming freshmen class consists of about 215 students. Our student to teacher ratio is 17:1 with an average class size of 22-24 students per class. As students participate in elective and advanced course work they will find their class sizes become much smaller.
Is it difficult to participate in athletics?
The SFDHS athletic program offers 28 different athletic programs for boys and girls. Each season, there are some athletic programs that have tryouts and cuts, while others offer a spot to every student who signs up. During the 2016-2017 school year, almost 75% of the student body participated in at least one sport.
