    Great school great teachers and great curriculum. After coming from a public school. We were a little behind. Luckily the teachers worked with our kids to get them caught up.And they are thriving now.

    My children have attended this school for the last several years. The teachers put an emphasis on the whole child - both academically and spiritually. We have enjoyed being a member of the St. Joseph family.

    My children have been attending St. Josephs for the past 7 years and I have been thoroughly impressed with their performance and development. This school's success is attributable to the outstanding teaching staff who foster a positive and caring learning environment.

    The teachers at St. Joseph Catholic School are exceptional. One of my child's teachers went above and beyond to help him. We were blessed to have someone so loving and dedicated to her job. The class sizes are smaller compared to other schools which is just what my child needed. It is truly a wonderful school with loving dedicated teachers and strong academics.

    My children have attended St. Joseph Catholic School for several years now. I am completey satisfied with the education they are receiving. The teachers are well-qualified and extremely dedicated. The class sizes are small allowing each child to receive individual attention. The students are encouraged and challenged both academically and spiritually on a daily basis. The atmosphere is loving and respectful. 45% of the 4th through 7th graders tested in the top 5% on national standardized tests. I am looking forward to my children attending through middle school.

    One of my kids graduated from here and is now in mostly honors classes in high school. I attribute my son's academic success to his teachers' involvement and passion for their career while at St. Joseph. My other son is in 5th grade and I LOVE his teacher! You can be sure he will be attending their new middle school that they just added next year when he graduates from elementary school. The teachers really get to know their students and are able to push them individually down their academic path - this is something we did not get while in public school. We are so glad we switched and came to St. Joe's! By the way both of my sons qualified to be Duke Tip scholars while attending at St. Joesph's - they must be doing something right.

    I have a child who graduated from elementary school here and another currently attending. While there my children tested above the national average in most subjects. They have a strong foundation in organization and study skills. The teachers as well as the students are caring and respectful.

    I currently have two childred attending who have been there since K4. Great caring teachers with small class sizes. One class per grade. Strong curriculum including religious education that instills christian values.
