Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
Very poor communication. Lack of enthusiasm. Poor constructive criticism. Lack of motivating students. One teacher down right rude to me when inquiring the status of my child's progress, like I was a bother.

If you are considering this school, please take note of most recent reviews about this school. My daughter currently enrolled at this school and will not be returning. Huge disappointment and a mistake as a parent on my part, I should have listened to other parents reviews. Academically, my child was a straight A student, in gifted programs and now struggling with no direction in classrooms. Very poor communication from school, teachers. I appreciate the Catholic education for my child, but the academics and what the school offers for the price is a big disappointment. Athletics at this school are a joke. Drug problems prevalent, troubled kids as well. And although this may be true for any school, I expect far more structure, and substance for the cost of this school.

Our child attended here only one year and did not want to return for several reasons but the main reason was the teachers and their advanced ages, lack of enthusiasm (emails not returned, teachers leave classes unattended, teacher fell asleep in class, and the overall environment of control and dictatorship style of the principal. the lack of clubs was dissappointing (no Spanish, Key, National Honor Society, clubs). The school constantly asks for more $ all of the time (after paying $8,000 for tuition). Almost the whole administration is related- a nepotism nightmare. Plus, we had a serious safety issue involving a student that was kicked out but this school places reputation above safety. I was warned from other parents that there was a lot of "fluff" at this school and I should have heeded the warnings. Avoid this school unless your child is a social misfit and can't handle the real world. They act all academic but will admit any student and cash their check.



- a parent
Poor leadership, poor planning, teachers who show favortism, and poor communication all plague this school. Drug and alcohol use is prevelant at school dances, and there is no real sports teams. There is a constant request for money at every turn, and the academics are not at a college prep level. This school is not a good value for the tuition that you pay----stay away.

Having my daughter attend st joseph was one of the best decisions I have ever made. the academics is excellent, and even mroe importantly, the staff is wonderful and supportive of a moral and respectful societal preparation for the young people they teach.
