Don't be fooled by the reviews this school has gotten in the past. a). it gets good reviews because it's compared to the Holbrook Public schools b). As over-rated as the school was in the past, it's much more so since the arrival of the current principal and pastor. c). The good reviews you see, tend to come from the clique members who run the school. Thigs went down hill the second year(arrival of new admins) my kid was here. We reluctantly decided to give this school a 2nd chance (big mistake). This school year was more of the same issues from the previous year- No feed back from the teachers, no report cards, no spelling tests or math tests. The principal s response when questioned was "If you don't think we're serving your kid, you can come down and pull your kid out today". Well, we did just that after the Christmas break. Needless to say, if you want to learn more about the attitude of this principal and the pastor, look no further than the reviews St. Catherine's in Norwood got between 2006 and 2010 before this principal got transferred out of there. That will tell you all you need to know about the direction this school is headed in under the current principal.

My children have gone to St. Joe's since Pre-School and I have always liked the school but absolutely love the direction it has taken since the new pastor and principal arrived last year!

my child attends school there and its a good school however, i would like to see more diversity amongst their teaching staff. A excellent school staff reflects its student population. Also, ten minutes is not enough time to have a parrent teacher one:one to discuss an issue you may have with your child.
