What a perfect way to begin your 'school career'! Mrs. Byron is the kindergarten teacher at St. Joe's and exudes nothing but love and compassion for her young and spirited students. She is selfless, generous and kind.
Current and previous students greet her with a hug. If she walks into a room, within seconds their will be children of all ages circling her for their time to hug her. She really is that great and makes that much of an impact on the students.
Thank you Mrs. Byron for starting all the children who walk through your door with the most gracious and positive outlook on learning. It is a foundation like you which breeds greatness, love and generosity in the classroom and subsequently life.
We have 2 children in the school who have absolutely loved their teachers. We love the community aspect of this school. They have welcomed our family with open arms. There is a long history and tradition to this school. We could not have asked for a better alternative to the public school situation here in salem.
This school totally prepares the children for high school and beyond. the quality of education is very high, with concentrations in Math, Science, and English for both academics and extra-curricular clubs and activities. Most of the children that move on to high school from St. Joseph's 8th grade are honor roll or high honors students and have become extremely successful in their future careers. Check out the web site at www.sjrcs.com. The students not only get a great education from this school - they carry with them the spiritual and ethical manners and courtesy that is lacking today in other schools. This is a great school with highly qualified teachers and I highly recommend it.
The school prepares the children to be ready for further education. The children gain knowledge from hands on experience and from the teachers. The values that are brought out in the school are a foundation for further education.
