Nepotism runs wild. If you're lucky, you will be a teacher's child or a friend of a teacher's child. Otherwise, how your child is treated is a roll of the dice. This may account for the fact that there are only 70 students left in the school. Good luck and may the force be with you.
I have hadnothing but great experiences at St. Joseph School. Our son is constantly challenged by his schoolwork, and enjoys his religious education. He has weekly lessons in Art, Music, Computer and Gym. The principal is VERY involved with all of the students. Parents receive a weekly folder with our children's tests from the previous week for us to review and sign. Our principal also reviews every child's test folder each week! How may other principals do this? While St. Joseph does offer CYO basketball,yearbook, scouting, and drama as extra curricular activities, our middle school students are also allowed to participate in Public school sponsored teams. We also have Ethnic night, Family Bingo, school skating parties, and an academic fair. Parents are highly encouraged to be involved at school in recess duty, library aids and lunchroom helpers.
