Posted September 10, 2013

I joined St. Joseph as I had good things about the school and the academics were supposed to be excellent. My experience so far dealing with the prncipal and staff has been nothing but appaling. I have reached out to the Principal on a few follow up items about my boys and I have just been given a run around. Telling me they will call me back but never get back to me. I guess my biggest learning is the staff is not cooperative at all especially the principal and if you need something to be followed up with, it will take you forever if not never to get it done. I would prefer my boys to be in a good academically sound school and a responsive understanding staff. - Parent

Super School. My kids are excelling there, because they work hard. Has excellent parent participation.

The principal likes children and some parents who don't get their way call her defensive. The faculty works well with her and would not accept mediocrity.

Good school that could be fantastic with a different administrator - does not seem to like children, takes a defensive posture to all that is brought to her attention by a parent. Seems to be striving for mediocrity.

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.
