Actions speak louder than words. You cannot teach the students about honesty, integrity, and fairness when you downsize by getting rid of the teachers who are the oldest in age who have been there for decades. I will never send my children to this school or step foot in the church with such uncompassionate people in charge. St. Joseph himself is an older saint, so maybe there should be consistency by changing the church and school name to a younger, less experienced saint.
I am a parent of (4) children. (2) are currently a freshman and a sophomore in a private high school. Both attended St. Joe's from K-8 and absolutely loved the teachers and the principal...both of them !!! I still have (2) other children currently attending St. Joe's as well. All (4) of my children have excelled both personally, academically and spiritually due to their involvement with this school and parish. St. Joe's has wonderful, caring and long standing teachers ... lowest teacher turnover rate amongst all local area Catholic schools. The new principal has and is still making many positive changes within the school. I have had only great experiences with this school and parish.
Most teachers are great. Pastor is mentally ill, principal is awful.They completely chase parents and kids away. The tuition being lower than others is not worth it. Spend the extra money and have your child grow mentally and spiritually.
I can't say enough about St. Joe's. Everyone is so wonderful! The teachers are so caring and my children love school. Spanish and computer in kindergarten, WOW! We live in Hudson School System, but love the small school setting at St. Joe's. We are glad to be a part of such a great school.
I have three children who have attended St. Joe's for a combined 21 years. I have nothing but praise for the administration and faculty. Evidence of the good work they are doing is the fact that the enrollment has doubled since my oldest son started first grade 10 years ago. In addition, it has one of the lowest tuitions of any parochial school in the Cleveland Diocese. Tuition for both of my children this year is approximately $3,500. At that price, I don't even consider sending my children to a public school.
