The best catholic school in the south side of Milwaukee. Two of my kids graduate from St. Josaphat and my third child is on seven grade. My family found everything we look for in this school, a group of teacher that love teach,help and guide our children's to reach their goals and more. A principal and staff that care about our families needs. And our children's learn to be a better persons, because they know God is in their lives every single moment. God bless to all families in St. Josaphat and all families to come.

We believe the goal of our beautiful Catholic School is to assist parents/guardians in preparing the next generation of practicing Catholics who are well educated in the Catholic faith and capable of leadership in creating a just and Gospel-centered society.

I cannot say enough positive things about the teachers, community, students and parents of St. Josaphat. The staff truly works as a team to make sure that each student gets what they need to be a successful student. Students are comfortable with the staff in seeking help or giving ideas. Parents are supportive of the teachers and take an interest in their child's learning. The school is a safe environment for students to learn and grow.

It is a great school with a lot of wonderful teachers and staff that strive to do the best they can to help your child learn and excel in school. Although it is a wonderful school, something that could be improved would have to be the size of the school. It is a little small, but has a major impact on its students.

I really like that the school takes the time to know the families that attend. You feel like everyone knows who you are. The staff is friendly and tried to keep all students in line if things aren't going good. They help the children be the best they can be.

I have my 3rd child in this school and have been pleased with the excellent education each of my children have received. I have had only one start in K4 and 2 that have already graduated. The teachers are excellent as the leadership is too. There is a real sense of family here with many cultural events for the whole family.

St. Josaphat Parish School is an outstanding elementary school in the Milwaukee area. My wife and I are very proud that our child attends this school. When we first chose St. Josaphat, we had compared it to many other local private and public schools. It stood apart on all levels for us. The children are taught how to comport themselves and are taught to be mindful of others. Children are taught good family and social values and it is evident if you ever visit the school. The staff is very friendly and responsive to the children and parents. Being located in the inner city, we were concerned about security. However, the staff does a good job with safety procedures and teaching children to be aware. This school came highly recommended to us and we are not let down in any way. I mention academics last because it goes without saying. St. Josaphat's high academic standards for both children and teachers sets the tone for a child's expectations on being a great student. Specifically with our child, she is very happy there and loves learning and excelling at what is presented to her. Her attitude towards school is wonderful. Thank you St. Josaphat! Keep up the great work!

My children and I love St. Josaphat. There are many things that I like about the school. The hours are great! The before and after school program is wonderful. Working an early shift requires an early drop-off for my children. In addition, the teachers are awesome! I have a great relationship with my children s teachers & other staff. I like that there are Home & School Meetings to update all the parents of what is going on in the school or if there has been & will be any changes. A weekly newsletter & folder is given to the children to bring home & more updates are given. Also, BIG PROPS to all the staff & students that make many events happen. The Fiesta Dinner was a huge SUCCESS! My son and daughter love Choir. My children enjoy playing in the Soccer team. St Josaphat has great educated teachers that help children whom are struggling in a certain area. The Social Worker has helped my daughter in many ways that I am thankful for everyday. Since I can't name any teachers, each & every teacher from K4 through 8th grade, are all wonderful human beings. Thank you for all your dedication and hard work.
