All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

SJS is a wonderful school! The academics are outstanding. The teachers truly care about their students, and the administration is always considering ways of improving the school. Parents are very involved in activities, and the school encourages parent participation. Students are kept active, engaged, and stimulated through the well-planned curriculum and through the various clubs and activities held throughout the school year. Social action and volunteerism is a big part of the school community and it shows in the thoughtful, polite, and diverse student body. We couldn't be happier.

SJS is a great school! The academics are very strong, and the values and faith that are reinforced every day truly set the environment apart from other schools in the area. The new principal is slowly but surely making changes to the school to make it even better. The campus is clean and lovely, and the children always seem so happy. Truly, can't say enough good things about this place!

Academically, I am inpress by the incorporation of public speaking in the curriculum, The principal creates a nurturing and honest environment.The school certainly appears to reinforce the catholic faith. However, the application process is confused. Students are isolated from the real world.

I love St. Joe's. I have two kids there, one in kindy and one in an elementary grade. Both are thriving academically. Additionally, both kids seem to be learning a lot about God, and I feel like the values I am teaching at home (respect, self-restraint, gratitude) are being reinforced at school. Academically, the program is rigorous. Although officially there is no enrichment offered until 5th grade, in reality it is offered early on, for both math and reading (that I know of). For those kids who struggle with reading, extra help is offered during school hours. I like the little traditions of St. Joe's. Once a month, there is a hot lunch offered, and each time two grades contribute desserts, and I think one grade gets to eat for free. There's pajama day, Raven's jersey day (depending on their standing), etc. It's a nice school, kept in nice condition.
