This schools headmaster is to young for the position he holds. I strongly agree with other statements regarding strange interactions with teachers and families. There is a reason the class sizes are so small run don't walk away from this school.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Multiple years they were informed and nothing was done.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
We addressed multiple leaders for help and received nothing in return.

I strongly agree with the earlier review. This school humiliates children. As a parent, you want your children to be in a safe environment. We had to remove our children for multiple reasons. 1. Humiliation by the staff on multiple occasions. 2. Bullying is a big problem here and the school does nothing,. They say what you want to hear but do not implement changes. 3. Parents know of the bullying but do not come forward because they fear their child will become the brunt of the bully. The kid has to break down in order for a realization to be made. News flash, that is too late! 4. School favors families with multiple children for money purposes. We gave this school the benefit of the doubt over and over again. We finally had enough and chose to leave. Best decision for our family. Be aware of this school as it goes from the top of the totem pole down!!! It is very sad and disheartening.

It was the most humiliating experience our family had ever been through and would never wish this type of experience upon anyone. As parents, it's our position to protect our kids and found we could have avoided this school altogether if only we had the time prior to my husbands work transfer, to research it better by reading the reviews and speak to other families in our Delray Beach community. Do your homework.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The interaction of teachers and students isn't normal. Might as well have your kids get lost in a large public school.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There isn't any- is was strange for our neighbors kids to have loads of homework and our son had none.

Amazing teachers and a very caring, loving atmosphere. My son graduated from SJES and is now a sophomore in High school He is consistently at the top of his class academically. My daughter is in middle school and is also quite successful. Sending my children to St. Joe's was one of the best decisions that I made as a parent!

St. Joe's is a welcoming place with a supportive administration, hardworking teachers who put everything into their students' learning, and a family-oriented atmosphere. The campus is pristine and safe, as well.
