St. Joseph's is a great school. Two of my children attend the early childhood program. The Director of the program is caring, patient, intelligent and really has the best interest for the students at hand. My 5 year old transferred from a Montessori School to the stricter Catholic School background and the transition has been a challenge. She has still been able to excel in this environment without feeling singled out. My 2.5 year old has learned a lot was able to transition easily from home to school with her caring teachers. The school has been able to produce great results from the graduating 8th grade class and I look forward to sending my children to the next level Pre-K and Kindergarten.

This is a very good school. The teachers truly care about the student body. They do challenge the kids.

St. Joseph The Carpenter School is a great place. There are so many things going on at the school. The kids have many opportunities to spend time with friends outside of school through school activities. The students are very close and many stay at St Joe's from Pre K-8th grade.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
