The school and parish are like our extended family. They put the education of our children first and foremost, continuously updating the school and bring in the newest technology so that are children are ready for a bright future.

My wife and I are very happy with this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The academic structure and small class size is a plus. Our new pastor Father Michael has brought an innovative thought process to the school and community. We have been involved for 3yrs and are very happy with the education and life skills that our child is receiving. This school is a hidden treasure that should be discovered by all involved parents

My family has been involved in St Joseph's community for nine years. They have been happy and helpful times. The school is small and individual attention is abundant. I am very pleased with the faculty and staff. Extra-curricular activities are on the rise. I would recommend St Joseph's highly.

Tried both public and private school, and this one has offered much more support to the whole child, fostering desire to learn and interest in learning rather than tunnel focus in preparation for citywide test performance. Students are known and supported by all staff, and communication between staff and parent is facilitated.

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.
