I come from a local Conway family who has been here since the start of St. Joseph. The quality of education that I have recieved has been above and beyond average. I love the family-like atmosphere, as well as the faith aspect of our school. Christ is the center of everything we do. I love being able to worship and pray openly without fear or embarassment. The teachers are excellent and personal. I feel like they real care about the students as individuals. Not only do they teach us the ways of their craft, they also teach us about life. I love that they care about making us well-rounded individuals with strong morals and values, instead of just focusing on their area of expertise. They are willing to do anything to make sure you understand the material. This school is by far one of the best in Arkansas.

I love this school. I've gone here since I was in kindergarten and it is amazing. It has very good technology too.

I have been very pleased with the education my son has received at St. Joseph. We are Catholic but that isn't the reason I chose this school. It's well worth what you pay for the attention they receive from the teachers and principals and the quality of education. The students are a great group of kids!

Excellent in every aspect. We are not Catholic, but the education children receive at St. Joe is much better than what our child received in a public school. I guess the old saying that you get what you pay for is true and our money is well spent.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
