I could not say enough great things about St. Joseph's school. I have had children graduate from St. Joe's. They attended a prestigious private high school where they skipped freshmen Spanish and math. They were fully prepared for their honors and AP classes. Besides academics St. Joe's has so much more to offer. The band and choir program is one of the best in the city. There are countless ways to enrich students through clubs and sports. Their gifted program is comparable to District 197. The religious foundation has now been enhanced by the Good Shepard program. The teacher's are caring, prepared and have exceeded all expectations. Most of them have their Master's degrees in teaching. There is little turnover in teaching positions. I still have children at St. Joe's and I truly believe they are better people as a result of the strong Catholic foundation that has prepared them for high school and life.
St. Joseph's is a wonderful school with a strong academic curriculum, dedicated teachers and staff and a community-oriented feel. Many of its alumni come back to send their own kids to St. Joseph's, which brings a great sense of continuity. In addition to the core curriculum, the art, music and Spanish programs are all excellent.
St. Joseph's school is a wonderful environment for children to develop their whole self - academically, socially and spiritually. Parent involvement and high quality teachers make St Joe's our choice. Sacrificing fancy vacations or a newer car to pay for tuition is worth it. We have been part of both the PreK and elementary schools and both are excellent.
Love St. Josephs preschool program! The program director Annie is great and the teachers are wonderful! My daughter loves the school and is learning so much! Many great opportunities for the preschoolers for enrichment with spanish and music class for example.
