Great education, but the principle, he doesn't confront matters, in the right way. it seems that he cares more about the students/parents who donate money to the school, and among the whole faculty you can see the difference in the special treatment toward these students.

My children attended other Catholic Schools over the years and this one was the best! I appreciated the discipline and respect it instilled in my children. Academically the middle school is very challenging but this made their high school years more relaxed. We have many wonderful memories of the teachers, friends and activities.

When I was a student I thought the teachers were really tough and strict. I loved and hated it. When I went to high school I knew more than my peers. I was one of the best students in my public school. My family moved out of state but I continued to be at the top of my class and I know I owe this to those strict teachers and high expectations. I earned a college scholarship and I know if I ever have children St. Joseph's is where I'd send my kids.

I went there for about three years and I had horrible experiences. I switched to public school and was behind in nearly everything.

Excellent academic programs, good extracurricular activities, sports music and art. The level of parent involvement is adequate, not too much not too little.

St. Joseph School is a family's educational dream. The school leadership fosters an environment that is rich in faith foundation, academic excellence and promotes a focus on the development of the whole child. The community is welcoming, engaged and supportive. The academics are consistent and the school offers an extraordinary music, theatre and fine arts program from Pre-K through 8th.

The overall academics of this school are wonderful. The teachers work hard to make each student learn the material and they involve parents if necessary. The overall curriculum is a strong one based in respect to each other and establishing responsiblity on the individual. My son attended this school for the last 2 years and I have never had a problem with him not wanted to go to school. He loves it. This offers a variety of sports program. They also offer art classes and music starting at kindergarten. Parental involvement is what this school is about.

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.
