Established in 1993, St. Francis’ High School is a secondary education institution with separate sections for boys and girls.
We are affiliated with the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Peshawar for SSC examination and registered with PSRA, Govt. of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
We provide excellent environment for academic excellence and personality grooming through a meticulously set curriculum and vigilantly monitored disciplined environment.
One of the major purposes of education is to help students gain knowledge and skills which make them responsible and productive members of the society. This calls for a holistic approach. At St. Francis’, we take a multi-dimensional approach for leading our students towards academic excellence and character building. We aim at giving them a nurturing environment in which they can discover and polish their natural talents. We believe that each and every child has been granted some special gift by God Almighty. It is the responsibility of the society to help the child explore and use this gift to make this world a better place. Hence, we provide them several opportunities to become what God wants them to be.

And make us bold and strong,

And nothing shall we fear.
Our banners wave to honour thee,
Our hearts ‘ere beat high with great joy,
To fight for thee throughout our lives,
To fight against the wrong.
