What a wonderful school. The Principal and Vice Principal along with Father Dan really have great control of our children. They enforce Christianity and promote high achievement in academics. I think the cafeteria is very clean. The teachers really work with you and your children. Safety is always all the minds of staff. The classrooms are smaller than most Catholic schools. 25 or so. I believe they used to be larger. OUR FAMILY LOVES THIS SCHOOL!

The school is warm and friendly, very Christian . The teachers are wonderful with the children and expect and get high achievement from them. They also conduct themselves in a very professional but caring way and not just teach religion but show them through example. The Principal is very supportive and always helpful. The Vice Principal is as well. They are always cognoscente of what is going on around the campus. They exude pride and love for the children and school. The priests are very present in the school. The children have so many learning opportunities here. The parents are warm and friendly which extends to their children as well. I find the school to be very clean. The parents volunteer and keep the cafeteria very clean. The class rooms are much smaller than our previous school. Our family loves it here.

Education seems to be good. Teachers have attitudes, clicks with parents. very dirty cafeteria and bathrooms. There seems to be a feeling of if you do not like it here then leave attitude.

The teachers have high expectations of the students. The parents have a chance to help their children prepare for the future through home studies. Expect parent involvement!

This is a great school. My Daughter loved it and was broken hearted when we had to move away. We hold all future schools to a higher standard because of the wonderful teachers and people at St. Joes.

I love this school! The parent involvement is great and the education is wonderful. The Christ Centered Environment at this school and parish is amazing. Couldn't ask for better people for my child to be surrounded by.

Overall pretty good school, it has it's quirks, i.e. clicks among parents and teachers, but the overall academics are pretty good. Class sizes are large, but more able to maintain due to not having to discipline all day long.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
