More of religious bigotry and indoctrination is imparted to the kids. Inward looking and intolerant to other religious minorities are ingrained into the students by the behavour of its staff.

I could not be more pleased with SJA school! Students excel academically with the instruction of a challenging curriculum and grow spiritually in a nurturing environment that promotes stewardship and respect towards others. Thank you SJA!!

Sending our children to St. Joan of Arc was the best decision we've ever made! My children are growing to become such caring, responsible, and hard working individuals, thanks in great part to the great teachers and staff at SJA!

Develops character: Strongly agree

Catholic schools are all about honesty, integrity and fairness.......and a whole lot more than just the education basics.

St Joan of Arc School is an excellent environment for your child to flourish! The teachers are very caring and the school offers a well-rounded curriculum. The school's technology is very up to date and even the preK classes have smartboards! Even PreK4 full day has Spanish, art, gym, computer and library classes. The school has a librarian and various other specialized teachers. Sister Eileen, the principal keeps all parents up to date with daily emails. Parents are always welcomed to school events and the PTO is very active in the school. I always feel welcomed in the school. I'm so glad my husband and I chose to send our children there. We sacrifice to make this a reality for them.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

I think the teachers here are phenomenal! Your child will emerge from each grade a much more responsible, and better well rounded person because of what they learn from their teachers. They set a great example of Catholic values each day and teach so much more than the basic curriculum.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Students are well prepared for high school and beyond. After attending St. Joan of Arc, they develop sound study skills and know how to do research and write well-written papers. 5th grade projects really emphasize these skills at the elementary level. Even my first grader is presenting topics/projects to his class. I wish I had such sound public speaking skills developed at such a young age.



- a
The school has a reputation of being lax when it comes to the issue of discipline, especially the current principal and administration. It is well known, even at the Diocesan level that there is not strong leadership at the school. I have found from personal experience that my children received a better education and much more Christ-like attitude at the local public school system than while attending St Joan.




- a
St. Joan is an awesome school with caring, committed teachers who teach not only the basics but life lessons. They teach good habits such as solid study skills to help your child flourish in any high school environment. Class sizes are small and there really is a family feel to the school. There are many evening activities to bring the whole school community together. If you want your child to feel nurtured and not lost, have them attend St. Joan.



- a
A very underwhelming and poorly funded school compared to the Nearby Derry Township school which is one of the best schools in the state. Do your child a favor and put them in a school where they have a chance better chance to be successful in life.
