A Tour of St. Francis Episcopal Upper School Campus

Carolyn Means - Thursday, August 02, 2018

Twenty-two trail-blazing students are about to embark on their freshman year at Houston's newest high school, the Upper School at St. Francis Episcopal School. Yesterday, I had a tour of the large campus with Director of College Counseling and Interim Head of Admissions, Steven Scales. While preserving the elegant finishes and furnishings of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Cooper who owned this property, spaces have been re-purposed as administrative offices and student-centered environments. Ranging from the student center in the historic Richmond House, dining, study and meeting spaces in the Andrews House, six modern classrooms in a separate academic building, science labs upstairs in the Crum Athletic Center, to large playing fields, the facilities have been designed with today's students in mind. I enjoyed a brief chat with Kara Henderson, Upper School Head, who will be teaching all levels of Spanish and Freshman Seminar. Before her most recent position at Emery/Weiner School, Kara was at St. John's School. Angie Flowers, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, also came to St. Francis from St. John's. She has been working for the past two years on translating the high school vision into a road map for the talented faculty assembled for the Upper School. With the addition of a grade each year and the development of the remaining acres of the South Campus, St. Francis Episcopal School will be a strong preschool to high school option for Houston families.
