The administration is not responsive to changing times or valid concerns of parents. Over the years there has been a steady decline in academic excellence. The students are not well prepared for various life challenges, especially rigors of high school
St. Joseph is has held on to values and the standards of education that are so desperately needed in todays society. There is structure,uniforms,and a code of conduct that is upheld as well as allowing the students to express themselves through the arts and their feelings through their faith. The carmelite sisters are great with the children and provide a very loving atmosphere. There is tutoring and the teachers are more than willing to provide resources for additional help or extra credit. I highly recommendy this gem of a school.
St. Joseph is a great school. Everybody is friendly and all the students and teachers pretty much know each other. The teachers here are wonderful. They communicate to the parents and have so much compassion with their students. I highly recommend this school.
School environment is very gregarious &amiable that i know every kids here likes. Teachers here have tremendous amount of compassion & are more than willing to give themselves to help a student.They teaches you responsibility, organization & time management. We feel honored to be here & recommend this school to anyone out there.
We truly appreciate the education & experience that my kids received here.St. Joseph truly challenged the students to be on their own person & stick out among the crowds. The atmosphere here is friendly,respectful & caring. The setting is peaceful & family-like. Safety has never been a problem.Security is outstanding.Well worth the tuition.
Decent & very modest school we've ever been. Your children will learn a lot esp. dealing with different kind of people in a real world! They have an all around principal.
Peaceful environment.They have a very strict uniform policy(which is a good idea) Children are surrounded by good people,you're very sure that they're in good hands~~~~~~Teachers give a huge amount of hmwrk. but not overwhelming.
A very great improvement done this year!Esp. in strict discipline. your children will be in good hands. Children who doesn't follow rules will not be in this honorable school.
It's a great school with a lot of potential if parents are willing to get involved both at school and at home. It's a partnership bet. parents,faculty & teachers that makes one excellent school to be better.
St, J's had really changed,I'm responding to those parents who 're judging too quickly. They have a new principal which does'nt have a laxed policy on bullying, In fact, If the student we're doing that kind of attitude they will get suspended or immediately be out of this school. My son graduated here and he's taking honors & accelerated subjects at Bishop amat.I believe wherever we go, Parents are the 1st educators/teachers of our child, isn't it????
St. Joseph has a New Principal who is really open for a Big Changes! If there's a partnership between parents and school Why not? We're giving her a chance & we knew she can do it.
I had hoped that things had changed at this school since my last child was there. I read the online reviews & felt that maybe I was too quick to judge. I should stick to my gut feelings. St.J's does not prepare kids for high school ! My child went to Bishop Amat & boy did we have a challenge on our hands! We spent so much money on math tutors! And I was not alone,several parents from my childs class were in the same boat. My second time around my little one was there a very short time. I can't beleive that a school that preaches 'Christian Love' has such a laxed policy on bulling. We wereout of there in less then 3 months. Not only are we happier at our new school, but I truly feel that my childs best interest is the main focus at our new school.
Thank you to all the wonderful staff esp. the principal for their excessive goodness,excessive in your christian example for the students.We knew that our children will not only be successful with their Academics but with your guidance, They learned how to love & live in the excessive mercy of Saint Joseph!!!
Arguably, an excellent catholic school! Teachers are dedicated and demand excellence from their pupils. Academics are balanced with a plethora of after school programs & christian community services.
This school is very welcoming and warm. They have teachers that really care about their students. The whole school is as one big family.
Outstanding education in a healthy child-centered and a very Catholic atmosphere! We really recommend this excellent school.
we recommend this school to all family . a parochial , small group of students, family like environment. they really had a huge improvement since the last principal left.
This school have a caring,nurturing teachers. Parent-teachers association are really great. A lot of parent are involved forming extracurricular activities for the school. There's a lot of improvement this year....
This is the place where children would grow in faith. A small disciplined but very focused school. It's not a tuition free,parent involvement highly recommended, Their new principal has a new policy to do mandatory Bingo. She is always there in the campus & very knowledgeable.
This school will going to have a lot of improvement esp. In math, reading & foreign languages.We believe because they have a new administration who is aware of these.They are doing a lot of research academically.Thank you principal!
