My 4th grade, 10 yr. old daughter has been attending St. Joseph School since Kindergarten and I could not be happier with her academic success as well as her spiritual development. The students standardized test scores continually exceed the national average. The teachers are fantastic and carring, the secretaries are wonderful, the pricipal makes it a priority to be involved and understanding to the students as well as parents needs and concerns and the pastor is very caring. The Athletic Program is very successful. The Music program is offered to students 4th - 8th grade and the music teacher is wonderful. Most parents are involved is some capacity, as am I because it is such a joy to be a part of my childs educational experience.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
