St. Joseph Catholic School is comprised of a Pre-school, Grade School and a Middle School. It is the most wonderful, loving, nurturing environment that my children have ever been in. We have attended two other private catholic schools with in our state and St. Joseph is by far the best! The education that my three children are receiving is tops.

We pray and soport each other in hard times and rejoice in the good ones. The students learn in a christian atmosphere, and everywhere they look is a rememberence of God in our lives. Statues, paintings, prayers...

Great parent/student community! Parents support other parents in everything we do: homework, sports, drop off/pick up from school, etc.

St. Joseph Grade School has a beautiful new school. We choose to send our children here because we are Catholic and wanted them to have a Catholic-based education. We have always enjoyed the feeling of our children being important to the administration and teachers. My son is all boy, and has really responded well to the new gym coach and seems to strive the hardest to please him. I really like his team teachers who have worked hard to meet his needs. My daughter loves her teacher and is trying to adjust to changing classes, which is new for them this year. Really great school, friendly parents and hard-working teachers and administration.

Loving, supportive environment. In Pre-K, my child is receiving art, music, computer and Spanish classes as well as PE. It is true, the price is high but considering daycare is at least $100.00 weekly, it all comes out the same. At least here, my Daughter is learning everything she needs to be ready for grade school. We are very happy with our decision to place her within this school system.

St. Joseph is an outstanding school. The teachers are wonderful and the administration team have worked hard to provide the best education for all students in the area. All three of my children have grown both academically and spiritually at this school. Thank you to all the hardworking teachers and principal!

The new facility and restructuring of the middle school should improve the quality of education and eliminate behavior issues. I like the fact that St. Joe's has a variety of students with different backgrounds. Also, since we are not Catholic, I like the school's method of teaching religion. It is more balanced than the other parochial schools in our area.

The lack of admission screening has overwhelmed this school with behavior problems. There are also too many teachers obviously over their heads. Very poorly administered school.

The best school in Huntington. My children were given the finest foundation any school could have given. From teaching laugages to violins to higher math I would give them an A+. Parents were involed on a daily basis and had every opportunity to communicate with all the staff. Both my daughters went to college on scholorships and did very well. a big thank you to all the wonderful teachers.

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.
