I attended this school with my brother. I started in kindergarten in the year 1969 and went through to the 4th grade. Do you have any year book pictures of classes from back then, I would love to walk down memory lane. My name was Renee Blackburn then.

There are very caring teachers in this school who make the children feel like a part of a big school family. The academics are very challenging, so don't expect homework or tests to be easy.

The school is not what used to be. Children are graduating not being ready for high school. The school does not have a computer program, children do not write and there are no extra curriculum activities. Teachers are not motivated because of the financial situation of the school. The principal is eighty years old and she does not have a good judgment anymore. There is no leadership. Most parents stay there because they have been in the school for along time. Those parents are often mistreated but its better not to say anything. They pick on children.

This is a wonderful small school, where all the teacher know the children by name. The curriculum is all based on the California Core and my child is so far ahead in academics compared to her peers who go to nearby charter schools. Other parents ask, "Where does she go?" I can proudly say, "St. Joseph the Worker!"

Great school, great teachers. My daughter is in the first grade and she's been there since pre-k. Have no complaints about the teachers. They are all wonderful. Tuition is reasonable and so are the number of volunteer hours. It has only increased by about $10 so far.

Excellent teaching. My daughters graduated from there and were more than prepared--one for Catholic high school and one for public high.

I have attended SJW and can easily say it's one of the best schools in our deanery. The junior high teachers are very involved with each child's progress through the year. If extra time is needed to further a child's understanding on something, they are more than willing to share their knowledge. To be brutally honest their music program is pretty much a joke for the older students. What is lacking in the music program is most certainly made up in the athletics. I am proud to say that I was apart of the first girls volleyball team ever to take first place out of three county's worth of teams. I fully believe that SJW has prepared me for whatever I may encounter in high school. Just graduating from 8th grade, my grade equivalent is that of an 11th grader's.
