St. Joseph the Worker Grade School 1

Used to adore the school and made many referrals until principal LIED to my son and myself when he said he requested an evaluation for his dyslexia, dyscalculia & dysgraphia. It was necessary as a re-eval for him to continue to the Catholic High School Told me he was waiting on testing for us AND OTHER FAMILIES...contacted authorities and REQUEST WAS NEVER MADE. In addition, they were supposed to provide some sort of accommodations when the principal said they did not have to. Imagine my shock to find that the entire year a principal stood in the halls of a Catholic school and LIED...and nothing I can do about it because noone will do anything. EVEN WHEN THE WRONG IS ADMITTED, no apologies or recourse.

Ms. Diane Plesa was the most wonderful 2nd grade teacher ANYONE could ever ask for. Compassionate, yet strict, which taught the children a balance has to be made in our lives. Wish more were like her!

Half are related to each other and hired on such basis. Teachers here used to care, but now its just about the parents with the money.

Amount of homework: Too much

My son should have had a reduction in homework and help during his free period and these were NEVER put into action on a regular basis. At the end of the year, someone would sit with him very few times...ONLY BECAUSE I COMPLAINED! BEGGED FOR HELP FOR 5 YEARS...NOPE. But the kids that were smart or had dough got an aide immediately!

Develops grit: Neutral

Persistence and grit is verbally and emotionally abusing others...sure! No recourse for treating others poorly....money talks!

Students learn by example and what they have learned is that it is okay to treat a person with an LD horribly and get praise for it!

When you have teachers that make fun of a student because of his disability or does not help him, instead ridicules him, examples are set.

When the principal lies to your face and tells you he wants to help your child and does the exact opposite, I cannot trust the place. Especially when teachers knew my son should have had accommodations and help, NOT ONE DID!

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.
