I went St Joseph School for for 7th and 8th grades. The school have excellent teachers and programs. More than 50% of the students in my school year got accepted into the 3 top high schools in New York City. The staffs are well discipline and knowlegable.

This is a great school too bad that the school is being merg with another school and now they fired the best prinpcal. What a shame for the students and the parnets!

What a coincidence that after my negative comments about the principal at St. Joseph written at the beginning of February (which were surpringly never posted), two glorifying reviews pop up. How could parental involvement receive a high rating when there is no PTA and the philosophy of the school is Sr. Deborah's way or no way. Submitted by a relieved ex-parent.

St. Joseph School is a wonderful school! Sr. Deborah, the other Sisters and all of the teachers and staff a warm, dedicated, committed and caring. The students receive an excellent education -not just in academic subjects, but in values and responsibility. The students are also extremely diligent, hardworking and responsible. The class sizes are small, the rooms are bright, engaging and well organized. The students seem to really care about each other and seem really friendly to their peers. I can't imagine a better school for my daughter and feel so privileged that she attends St. Joseph School.

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.
