This school is great and the teachers are top notch. You could send your children to the local public school, but this school will have them excelling beyond the pubic school. They are tough but fair and will work with your child be they slow or above average. Our children all have tested above and beyond their grade levels on all subjects. The school is embracing technology and is encouraging smart-boards and children using tablets for some classes. My 8th grader tested at a college grade level. Top that public school..well worth the cost of a private school.

This school has a very caring, wonderful staff. It is a God centered school and looks to address every child's needs. I am sent by the public school system to service St. Joseph. It is a pleasure to work with Mr. Boniti, the teachers and the nice children at St. Joseph.

St. Joseph School is a firm but caring institution that works with parents who truly want their child to succeed. The school has an open door policy for any parent who wishes to discuss any issue and it is followed through to a mutual conclusion of satisfaction. Thestaff is professional at all times and works hard to make every individual ready for their next step in life. There are many who have become leaders in their high school classes and finished in the top ten.

As a former teacher with St. Joseph School, I found my peer group was exceptional, the Principal was more than fair and a fun person to work for/with, the staff was equally fun and knowledgeable, and the student body was like having a big family. I miss my days as a teacher and look forward to visiting when I can.

St. Joseph the Worker School a fantastic school. The academics taught are above my expectations. We recently relocated from another state and found that our kids were behind. They worked closely with the children and made them current. The school prepares the children for college prep high school. An important fact to note in addition to their academic excellence is that the school is a community of teachers that really care for our children.

At St. Joseph School we always felt our children were in a safe, loving atmosphere. All four of them were well-prepared academically for high school, and they have friendships and memories to carry with them through their lives.

The school administrators have experience and stress discipline. Yet, the atmosphere is filled with caring and nurturing. Safety is never an issue because all precautions are taken.

St. Joe's is fantastic. We don't say it is a great school because we send our kids there. We send our kids there because it is a great school!

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.
