Choosing this high school is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am in college and am still close with all of my friends I made here - we're like sisters. The teachers are wonderfully, particularly for the AP track. Yes, the workload can be a lot, but I felt so prepared for college. Also, in reverence to the rules, this is a strict high school, but almost every girl that has graduated out of this school admits how much they miss this school and want to go back. Just obey the rules (which will teach you how to be a proper young lady) and the staff will love you and offer a nurturing environment. Most importantly, this is the perfect school for a potential ivy-league (or some first-tier university) student - keep the high grades and you're bound to get into a fantastic school, especially because the competition amongst the class (normally 100-130) is so little.

St. Joseh Hll Academy is an amazing school with strict rules and outstanding academics to form young women into intelligent, well-mannered, moral women. I am very happy with this school. Freshman year is tough, but during the first week each freshman is put into a group with a few other freshmen and a senior, and they do many fun activities together. The groups help girls to make friends and get to know their new school. Hill is a nurturing enviornment that preps young women for college and also provides great religious teachings. St. Joseph Hill Academy is one of the best schools on Statn Island. I would definetly reccomend this school to any girl who wants to attend a good college. You (or your daughter) will be happier than ever while being a hilltopper.

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.
