My daughters loved St Josaphats both did well in school and they were safe and happy.

This is the best choice for school in the area that it is located. It has lots of parent/teacher involvement. It is very focused on academics. They offer another language and encourage parent participation to help with the full learning of the child. It is high on my list of great schools in Phila. Michelle Matt

Gym class existed, but only involved people who played sports. Those who did not, sat on the side. There was no time for socialization and no time for any development other than the mediocre education that you get. If I had a kid, i would not send them there.

The language, culture and religious curriculum was excellent. There was very little offered in the way of math and science, however. There was absolutely no music or art programs. Athletics consisted of 7th and 8th grade basketball and running around in the schoolyard for 30 minutes every day. Classroom sizes were small (~ 20 students per grade).

I am a graudate of Saint Josaphat's Ukrainian Catholic School. I believe that, while a solid foundation has been laid out, there is much room for improvement. There is virtually zero parent involvement in academics, and there is only one sport for the students- basketball, usually coached by a parent, and this was only after none of the teachers were willing to donate the time! Extracurricular activities are limited to basketball only- not much of a program.

I am so pleased I chose St. Josaphat's for my children. Both my daughter and my son have excelled here. The classes are small and allow for all the students to know each other. All of the teachers know all of the students! I, also love the fact that they are learning another language. If you are in doubt of where to send your children and you live in NE Philadelphia, seriously consider St. Josaphat!

I am so glad I chose this school. My son has learned so much and he will keep learning. Not just about reading, writing and math but how to be closer to god and how to be a better person.

I couldn't be happier or more satisfied with St. Josaphat's. My children love this school. There are many schools in our area we could have chosen and I am so happy we made the right decision.

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.
