My children have attended St Joan of Arc for one year. It has been an incredible year.. We came from another private school near by. You cannot even compare. The academics far exceed the other school as well as the quality of the teaching staff and way the school is run.My children are happier than they have ever been, they feel secure and know that the teachers truly do care about them.The families and children at St Joan are great. Kids are kind and very welcoming. The children graduating 8th Grade are so well prepared for High School. The academics are very strong, and they truly receive a wonderful Catholic education. The staff teaching in middle have such understanding on how to teach teenagers and deal with their many issues as middle schoolers. It has been a very positive experience. Over 50 % of the 8th Grade class received 3.5GPA or higher, and Presidential Merit Award.. A,s do not come easy they all work hard to achieve these results. I would highly recommend coming here.
This is one of the best schools in Palm Beach County. As a parent I like the fact that A's do not come easy. The children have to work hard for good grades.
Excellent school. Son was here 5.5 years before we relocated elsewhere. After St. Joan's, the Catholic school he attended in Virginia was put to shame. It was like the VA school was stuck in the 1950s...AWFUL! Wish we could have stuck it out in FL based on St. Joan's alone!
My daughter loves to go school, St. Joan has been a wonderful start for her and great for our family.
It is a lovely school if you start here from pre-k or K and get to know the families and the kids and get used to the large classroom sizes. 34 kids in the 4th grade with one teacher in 2009-10. A child not used to classes that large will have difficulty adjusting.
My daughter was struggling in public school. After moving to SJA, she loves learning. It is 100% turning point for her. Love the school, and the teachers. I am so glad we made the change.
I feel so blessed to be able to have my son in St.Joan. .Tts his third year there,,and it just gets better...in all aspects. I feel safe and secure there also. The families of St.Joan are caring loving people,, its really a special school....ohh and Sister Ellen runs a tight ship too!
Both of my children are in their 5th year at St. Joan. They are happy and getting a very solid education in the basics, which will serve them well their entire lives. The classes are large, but so is the world; the teachers are exprienced and able to communicate well what the students need to learn. The school is strict, but also so very caring. Top that off with a spectacular after school crew and I say you can't find a better place to send your kids.
Horrible school. Class sizes are too big and students get lost in the mix. I pulled my children and all three are much happier!
I enrolled 2 of my children here. Everything about the school is excellent. Not only is it a great education but also very Catholic.
Sister Ellen is an on task principal. She always knows what shes doing. She is also very kind. Thank you Sr. Ellen
I enrolled 3 of my children, and I can say with absolute conviction this is one of the worst schools I have ever known. The focus of this school is on mindless discipline, not of learning or creativity. If I hadn't worked so hard to teach my children how to learn, they would have graduated like all other St. Joan's alumni - just focused on memorization not on learning. The only reason two of them stayed until 8th grade was because of the religious education. I pulled out my youngest just in time. This is a truly awful school.
A wonderful school with an exceptional faculty and staff.Children are well prepared for success when they leave for high school.
