St. Joe's has been a blessing for my daughter and myself. When we came here four years ago, I almost sent her to ERES because I knew I would not be able to afford tuition. I thank God everyday for such a wonderful principal as Carol Potter who stepped in and told me that if I sent my daughter to St. Joe's, that she would make sure that her tuition would be taken care of for the school year. She is a blessing in disguise for me and so many others that she does not know. My daughter has grown so much over the past four years that I can't see her going to any other school than St. Joe's She gets great grades, has many friends, and enjoys going to school everyday. I can't ask for anything more.

The small class sizes and interpersonal relationships gained from a smaller school make for happier more secure children. Such treasures are replaceable. Th dedication the teachers and staff show to the school is one in a million, and I am proud to be a part (parent) of such an organization.

The staff is awesome, they truly love the kids! The class sizes are small enough for children to get enough attention from their teacher. It is more like the smaller neighborhood schools that I grew up in, instead of the huge consolidated school. More than anything, my children are free to learn about and practice their religion!
