We were guided to St. Joseph's school in the fall of 2006 and we have loved every moment here. I have twin boys in the PreK program, which has been amazing for them. They absolutly love this school and everyone involved with the school. As this has been our first year in any school experience, I am blessed that we found St. Joseph's when we did. Every school member, as well as every parent involved, is what makes this school what it is. They really do strive for a better education for our children. -D. Allread

My child has been at this school since Pre-K we left for one year and was very disappointed and returned the following year. My daughter is in 6th grade and loves the school as we call it home. She is provided with an excellent education and with the small classes the teacher has the time to give individual help if needed. The teachers and faculty are all a great part of our family and have all had a major impact on my daughter education and social well being. This school has taught my daughter how to be her own person and that her opinion counts she is not just another student she is an individual. All our years here have been fantastic. If you are looking for a school that is safe and can provide your child an excellent education this would be the school for you.

I am very pleased with the education my child has received at St. Joe's. The child teacher ratio is low which benefits all the children. The staff go above and beyond what is expected of them. I am very pleased and my other child will be attending the pre-school program next year.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
