This is a horrible school. The curriculum is below what it should be, and the staff seem unqualified to teach.

St.Joseph us an amazing school so forget what all the haters say about it because unless you go there or work there you dont know what the heck your talking about. St. Joseph is also a great learning environment and should be reviewed with proper respect and kindness (were a CATHOLIC school for crying out loud ).Father Dwight and Dr.Mullins are great role models for the students. I'm a student there and think that I've had a considerable change in my education.thanks!!

I was very disappointed in this school! I am disappointed that i have to write this review because it is a close knit school and there are several stars among the staff. However, the Pre to Kinder building has major problems. The main one being your paying good money for teachers who either need to retire or have no experience and no education. There was absolutely no classroom control. All the kids ran wild in 3 out of the 4 classes. My husband and I were totally stressed by the end of the year and wont be going back. I hope that the necessary changes are made and they get some teachers with experience, training, education, and energy to provide this young ones with the right tools. I hope to perhaps bring my children back when they are old enough to be in the other building.

We have been at SJS for 3 years and love it! Compared to other private schools in the area, this is the place to be. Parents, principal, school board and priest are all amazing. The kids are happy and start each day with a school-wide prayer circle. What more could you ask for? Everyone is looking forward to having 8th grade next year. We have grown by leaps and bounds now offering PreK3 through 8th!

This school is awesome, my kids behavior and learning abilities improved so much compared to public school.happy to know that teachers show great dedication to their job and they love their students. Principal is very nice, has an open door policy, very motherly to us. Parish Priest enthusiastic, very much involved in school development, an asset to the community :)

I have been a part of St. Joseph Catholic School for three years and absolutelly love it! The teachers are wonderful and my child has gotten a wonderful education so far. Their early childhood program and it's teachers are awesome as well as the upper grade teachers. The school is very welcoming and the principal always has time for whatever comes up. She genuinely loves every child in the school. It is also nice that the Priest knows every child by name, from PreK to 6th grade. I'm glad they are adding 7th grade next year.

I LOVE this school! It is tucked away from traffic and crowds, and has a very nurturing environment - a sweet, old sense of tradition. All of the instuctors that I've met have been kind, warm, and genuinely care about the kids. I highly recommend it! Go Bluejays!

My son was in there preschool program and loved it. I am very pleased with the many things my son has learned, academically and religiously. I regret to say that they have little to no P.E. However, I was able to be involved in many school activities and parents have a chance to participate and have extensive access to teachers. We are looking forward to another year with them.

St Joseph School is a warm, friendly school dedicated to the enrichment of all students. Students attending St Joseph School receive the benefits of exceptional academic, spiritual, and social education. The family-like environment is inviting for all. A great place for your child to grow and learn!

The administraion was unwilling to work with our family and other families to clear up problems with education and staff. The 2nd grade teacher leaves much to be desired. We had our children there and have now moved them elsewhere, as have many other parents. It is not the quality school we thought it was.

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.

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.
