Philosophy of St. Francis de Sales School

As concerned Catholic educators our aim is to reinforce Catholicism in children and help them to develop Spiritually, Academically, Morally, Emotionally, Socially and Physically toward becoming caring people aware of their responsibility to God, to themselves and to their fellow man.

We, at St. Francis de Sales, realize the child’s primary educators are the parents. In co-operation with you, we wish to help you in this challenging task. Only through mutual co-operation and support can this goal be attained.

Positive Behavioral Support (PBS)

PBS is a proactive systems approach to preventing and responding to classroom and school discipline problems. Emphasis is directed toward developing and maintaining safe learning environments where teachers can teach and students can learn.

The purpose of the PBS approach is to provide schools with the capacity for systematic planning and problem solving when preventing and responding to problem behavior.

At St. Francis de Sales, we are implementing this system based on the 3 R’s.
