This school should be closed and the Middle School rebuilt! The town should put the parents hard earned money to better use and provide a better education. Too bad St. Francis closed. We wish it would have been the other way around. Aside from that I don't believe our middle school age children should be with HIGH School kids! We are very disappointed of how bad everything is in a small town like Bogota, and it continues right down to the Recreation Center..
I love Saint Joseph Academy! We have two of our children enrolled for about 4 years. They are very different students one of them is very academic and one of them really works hard and needs some support I find my children have blossomed here they have an advanced math class for the 8th grade class also the teachers are available after school for my child that needs extra support . I love Mr Newman he is very caring and Always available if you have questions or concerns.
I am pleased to see the excellent reviews of the school which I graduated from many years ago after 8 years there. I went on to graduate from both a Jesuit prep school and college and earned a master's degree. Along the way I learned 4 languages. I was somewhat of an unruly boy back then but the teachers had patience with me and gave me a great foundation in all subjects. I have lived in California for years and find that many people here cannot spell or write correctly, something St. Joseph's taught me well.
I cannot say enough about this school. The principal is wonderful. She knows every child in the school and she always greets the children as they are coming into school. My children have received a great education that well prepared them for high school. Not only does the school offer a good education, It also does a number of extra activities outside the classroom for the children. I would highly recommend this school.
The students are well prepared to meet the challenges of high school. I cannot say enough about the art and music programs. The children love the teachers and enjoy music and art very much. The parents are expected to participate in school activities and funderising events. This type of parental involvement helps makes the school a warmer and inviting enviroment. The sixth grade teacher has the 6,7,& 8 graders reading and writing on a level that is expected for high school. The math education is solid they could probably require more of the children. The principal has a positive outlook and is always trying to incorporate new things into the school. The school does add extra activities through out the year that the children really seem to enjoy.
For the last 13 years, my family has been part of the St. Joseph's family. My three children have all attended st. Joe's. My oldest is a freshman in college, one is in high school and the youngest still attends St. Joe's. They have all received an outstanding education. My 2 older children were both accepted into one of the area's top high schools. We anticipate the same results for our youngest when the time comes. The teachers and staff at St. Joseph School are some of the most dedicated people you will meet. Throughout the grades exists a high level of respect, structure and above all, education. I could not ask for a better school for my children to have spent their most formative years.
We currently have two children in St. Joseph School. We have been in the school for a number of years and have seen many transformations in those years. The families that are a part of the school are also a part of the school's family. The teachers are extremely skilled and know what each individual child needs and always encourge the children to do their best. The principal is a wonderful person who is very enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. One of the greatest compliments that the school gets on a regular basis is the fact that former students are always coming back to visit their former teachers and thank them for helping make they the people that they are today. We could not be more proud to be a part of the St. Joseph School Family.
A wonderful Catholic School. The new principal has done a terrific job maintaining the high standards this school has long been known for. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working, routinely staying well past the dismissal time to tutor children who need extra help. Music, art Spanish and Computer Lab are offered to all children once a week. Graduating students are regularly accepted to the high schools of their choice and often receive significant scholarships. Parental involvement is significant, reflecting their overall satisfation with this stellar Catholic School.
I have been a member of this school community for several years now. Our family experience has been wonderful. The teachers have been very helpful in staying after school with students who need additional help and any phone call to a teacher has always been returned the same day. The teachers are very dedicated. The school has a new principal this year who is full of new ideas and loves the children. All of the children receive instruction in Spanish, Art and Computer. The children all seem to do well in standardized testing and half the 8th grade class this year received high school scholarships. Wonderful school.
They never see the beauty of the a child within once they are branded by the former teacher. They always yells at them, I witnessed a child being reprimanded in the hallway. A teacher with a lot of complaints, verbal harrassment to her students still works there. Unfairness do exist.
