Our Wonderful Community
The approximately 500 students in grades 7-9 at St. Francis come from all over the city of Lethbridge, its neighbouring towns, and First Nations reserves. We are a diverse crowd! We also have a number of new Canadians learning English in our classes. Lethbridge is a very close-knit community, and many of our students' parents went to St. Francis, too.
Lethbridge is a beautiful community with approximately 80 000 residents. We are blessed with both a college (Lethbridge College) and a university (University of Lethbridge). Amid chinook-enhanced winter weather and balmy summers, we enjoy tons of recreation opportunities courtesy of parks, golf courses, nearby mountains and plenty of hiking trails. It's awesome here, and quick trips to the US are only 1 hour away.
