Being a part of the St. Joseph community has been one of the best decisions we made as parents. I have 2 students who attend the school. The school is a small and close knit community. The school has gone through a transition since a long time principal left a few years ago. The current principal is dedicated to the school and really cares about all the students. She has implemented many after school activities and is guiding the implementation of the latest technology in all the classroom. The teachers are amazing and really go above and beyond! My children have always felt loved and supported. I love that every teacher TK-8 knows my child's name. I love the faith-based approach to learning and the Catholic identity is strong in this school. I am excited for many more additions in the coming school year with 1:1 iPads in 5-8 and the addition of art and music programs into the core curriculum! Its a great school with many long traditions that we love to be a part of!
The academics are subpar as the school will accept anyone. There are limited resources and there is nothing that makes SJP superior to other schools in the area. The Principal promises a lot and delivers little. All of her so called new ideas are simply recycled ideas from her previous school. I currently have my child on a wait list at another Catholic school.
The teachers are great. They help the children establish goals that get them ready for high school. Parent involvement in the school is fantastic. The principal does not have any significant involvement in school activities.
