We love it! It is wonderful school. We are new and everyone has been very helpful and welcoming. I wondered if not being catholic would be a problem and it has not been an issue. My daughter is happy and I am happy with her learning environment Excellent teachers Strong principal/school leadership Challenging academic programs

St Joseph's is wonderful for everything that is offered and the excellent faculty whom care for each child like they are their own. Our son has proved to us that St Joseph's is the best school in the area with what is accomplished both academically and personally.

I am a former student of ST. Joseph and I enjoyed everything about my years at this school. The teachers are extremely helpful and thoughtful. They understand the students and become lifelong friends. I feel like I can go talk to them anytime a problem arises. They were very helpful with the transition from a private school to a public school. I believe St. Joseph has given me a confidence to help me excel in anything I put my mind to.

An outstanding school, in every aspect. Children are taught using a well-established curriculum, in a loving, Christian environment. The school maintains a high level of discipline, while encouraging students to always be their best. In a small school such as this, all the faculty, staff, and children are very comfortable and familiar with one another. It is truly a family atmosphere, with everyone watching out for each other. Teachers, administrators, and counselors from area high schools always comment on how well-round graduates from Saint Joseph are, being natural leaders in their classes. In addition to music and art, students are given technology and Spanish classes, with even more extra-curricular opportunities after school (tennis, soccer, basketball, pottery, karate, chorus, stringed instruments, Girl/Boy Scouts, & drawing). Tuition is very affordable, with multi-child families receiving a discount. I cannot think of any other way I would want to spend this money. What an investment!

This school is wonderful for both its academics and its sense of community. The children are challenged academically in a nuturing environment. Your religous background is not an issue.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
