We have had two children graduate from St. Joseph School and each has done well in high school. We currently have two students in the middle school and could not imagine them elsewhere. The education is supreme and the values and morals paramount...and they are HAPPY.

We have three children at St. Joseph School and they have been educated there since Pre-school. If you are considering private school or an alternative to public school I highly and absolutely recommend St. Joseph School. A better investment in your child's future you can not make.

I am not Catholic and yet my daughter attends St. Joseph's school (and on a scholarship). Why? It is the best school for her! She is learning so much. Classes are small but diverse, the instruction academically challenging, the environment is caring and respectful. Daily she is encouraged to do and be her best. I encourage other parents to look at SJS, it is a wonderful school and a welcoming community.

My daughter attends St Joe's and is receiving a fabulous education. The classes are small, the teachers attentive, the children well-behaved. It's a wonderful old school school -- I recommend St Joseph's to any parent! - A parent

My daugher has been going to St. Joe's since first grade. She is now in fourth. It is a wonderful school that is high quality with small, mixed classes. One of the most diverse schools around. Offers French K-8, gym, music, band. Lot's of parental involvement and caring for the school.

Both of my children attend Saint Joseph School. This is our third year here and we could not be more pleased with the quality of teachers and overall education. Children learn strong values and are learning french as young as preschool. The atmosphere is great. The classes are small and lend themselves to individual development. I can't imagine having my children anywhere else.

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.

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 »
