When I ask my daughter what she likes best about going to school at SJC, she says, "Everything!" She is in 2nd grade and has been attending since kindergarten. We are thrilled that she will continue through 8th grade.

SJC is the perfect school. Not only does your child receive an excellent education but they work on the whole person. The school helps the students not only think of themselves but for others as well. In a time of ME ME ME it is nice to know that someone is looking after the WE WE WE. The principal is the best. She is strong, compassionate and fair. My son is in 3rd grade and as been there since K and loves it. This is a school where parent participation is required but that only makes for a more rewarding experience.

The principal is the best. She has a strong leadership and compassion, qualities [which] are hard to find. Under her leadership, the school is blessed with devoted faculty, staff and parents. The school may be limited with certain resources and elective courses but has successfuly sent many graduates to top rank high schools, such as Bellarmine, Presentaion, Mitty and St. Francis.

We like the school very much. It is a Catholic school which has a big support from the parents. Good academic program and lots of community activities.

St. Joseph of Cupertino School is a tremendous learning environment in which to entrust your child. My eldest child graduated St. Joseph last year and my youngest attends St. Joseph currently. The principal, faculty and staff really care and have created a very family-like atmosphere. Every day begins with a brief but meaningful school-wide assembly in which important announcements are made, birthdays are recognized and prayers are offered for those in need. The curriculum is challenging (what I would describe as 'college prep' prep). The school offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities, from field trips and volunteer work to many, many sports and other skill-enhancing programs. The school encourages parent participation in many ways, further adding to the family environment. In summary, St. Joseph of Cupertino School is a great school and I highly recommend it.

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 student 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.
