The "Family LIke" environment is so nice and refreshing. I have two children at the school and they are very happy there. I love that they learn about religion & helping others as part of practicing that religion. My child was below grade level one year in reading and they have programs where they work with the children that need the extra help. He is now thriving in reading. They have the same for Math.

St. joe's has been great for my daughter . She is in kindergarten and Has progressed well. She can now read , do math problems, and learnedto be a polite young lady. Sending my daughter to St. Joe's is one of the best decisions that I have made.

We love SJS! It is a great school with a loving, supportive staff. I recommend it to everyone who is looking for a small private school in the area. The education and the environment can't be beat!

A great School for PK4-4th grade. I went their until 4th grade and it was the best school in the area. After leaving, I now miss the wonderful teachers that cared about my well being. The only thing is that 2nd grade is just a repeat of 1st. The proof was is that my sister skipped it and is now going to graduate High School at 16!

St. Joseph has ben able to educate all students. They seem to be able to understand the balance between accepting those that are gifted with those that have certain needs. They go far beyond what is expected of a school. As a parisioner i feel it has done an amazing job for the parish children as well as for the parish.

Average education. Resources are severely limited. Budget is non existent and they are constantly asking for monies from parents and doing weekly fundraisers. And again where does the money go? Teachers rarely have a smile on their faces. Faculty and staff are rigid and uncaring. PK3 and PK4 has been lumped together because of lack of monies to pay for an additional teacher. We have just been unhappy with our overall experience with the church and school. Most homilies are propaganda for fundraising and you must wait sometimes 2 weeks to see the parish priest for an appointment. Not must of an open door policy!

St. Joseph has grown since I arrived in 89. The students are so involved in community service as well as extra activities. The younger students can play basketball, soccer, scouts, Oddessy of the Mind and Lego league. The older sudents have NJHS, Student council, lego league, basketball, football, volleyball, softball, baseball and who knows what else :) The family here is wonderful. The students go through a growing process and when they graduate they are ready to conquer the world.

Although the education is excellent and really that is what matters most, a school is really so much more! There are no hobby/special interests programs. EVERYTHING is run and overseen by parents! If the volunteerism is not enough, it just doesn't happen. The sports are limited and again, headed up by only parents. Nothing is auditioned for or competitive. Everything is handed to everyone equally, for fairness. Therefore, no sense of achievement. School is old, small and outdoors. No gym, no auditorium. Cafeteria only. Bad weather? Stay in the classrooms! Most teachers are cold and not very approachable. They tend to be very hands-off with parents. Fundraisers are pushed way too much and kids are rewarded if they sell enough. Meaning, the kids who do not, feel penalized. School never seems to have enough money for anything. ALWAYS asking for more! And where does it go?

A fine school and parish with a good tradition. Extra-curricular sports are always competitive; students reach out to the community. Friendly, competent faculty.

My children are taught and treated very well by the teachers and staff at St. Joseph's. we all love this school. We came from a public school system. It is wonderful to see teachers who really love your children and treat each one as if they are special! Teachers and staff provide an atmosphere of spirituality and teach charachter and real life lessons to our children. I really, really love St. Joe's!

We love St. Joseph's Catholic School because it gives back over and over through its dedicated teaching staff, tireless volunteers, and generous benefactors. Our son has florished since coming there 2 years ago for Pre-k and we are eternally gratefull to be a part of such a wonderful community. When we drop him off each moring we walk away knowing we have given him the best possible spiritual, educational and social experience.

St. Joseph it have being great to our daughter, she was in Pre-K and Kindergarden, we have to go from Palm Bay to Mexico and for our daughter was very hard beacause she did not know spanish that well, but we think that good education is always well know, our daughter have receive the higest award for her school for best student from the grades 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade, and this school that she is in now is one of the best school in town, it mean that is not easy get in. We think that her being in St. Joseph help her to put her she is now. God bless you all, and keep that good work Mrs Scafiry and Mrs Nordby in special, and all at St. Joseph Lizette and Alvaro Franco
