Each day we get confirmation that we made the right choice for our first-grader. St. Joe's offers an excellent learning environment (thanks to great leadership and teachers) along with a warm, community feel (highlighted by the Catholic values that are an integral part of the St. Joe's experience). This is truly a special place!

St. Joseph School provides an excellent academic and religious setting for children to grow and flourish. The supportive sense of community is key to its success for both the student and their parents. One of the best Catholic schools in the area.

St. Joseph school fosters the spirit of faith nd community in every aspect of the school. Excellent teachers are using top-notch resources and children get the benefit of the best materials. I'm proud to say my children attend St. Joseph Catholic School in Downers Grove?

We've been very happy with our St. Joe's experience. The academics are appropriately challenging while the teachers provide a supportive learning environment in their classrooms. We receive a lot of communication to let us know how our children are performing. The sense of community is first rate. There's also strong parental support for the school and lots of opportunities to volunteer for outside activities without being presssured. A great Catholic School choice

A caring staff and great families make this school a great experience for the whole family.

we've been to three different Catholic grade school with my kids over a long range of years due to my husbands career responsibilities. St. Joseph school here in Downers Grove is BY FAR !! the best. The kids class camaraderie is fantastic. My kids are academically challenged with their homework and i cant say enough about their religious staff and their all school mass. Here is the special thing I find very unique...it's more than 100yrs old and there is a great excitement about the school with the kids AND parents !! Fun at social gathering and various athletic events even with the very young grades...ive never seen anything like this at our prior school. Truly special.

We are proud to say we belong in St Joseph Church and school. The staff there cares about our children.

Our children attend St. Joseph School in Downers Grove, Illinois . They enjoy the teachers and classes. My 2nd grader loves math, social studies and playing with his friends as well as being a Crusader. The teachers, staff and all the families involved help make St Joseph a great school.

My children love St. Joe's and as parents we are convinced that we made the right decision in sending them there. This is a caring faith-based environment with excellent teachers/leadership. Our children are learning and meeting state standards in education which will give them an excellent foundation for the future. Additionally, Catholic values are being reinforced in the school setting which is just as important to us.



- a
Our children are thriving under the educational leadership of the St. Joe's faculty. The teachers, techer aides and the entire staff are amazing and truly care about each and every kid that enters the building. Opportunities are many for parents that want to get/stay involved at every age level.
