Community Rating & Reviews

    My son attended St. Joe's and still feels connected to this community but after his four years he and I were disappointed. This entire school including the athletics is a shadow of what it use to be. Be aware that the school runs on a two class system. Your son will be treated like a second class student compared to the well connected Buffalo families and wealthy families. The school lacks substance morals and leadership. The school is more interested in their reputation and money than education and students. Sad considering the school's history and Catholic tradition.

    As an alumnus ('03) I found this school most unsatisfactory and would not dream of sending my son there. There are many reasons. Foremost among these is the lack of value. For the cost of SUNY tuition you receive a school with fewer classes fewer APs by far fewer internships fewer sport teams and fewer clubs than a comparable public school. My sister attended Ken West while I was at SJCI. I often regretted my parents' decision to send me there in light of my sister's experience at West namely the wider selection of honors and AP classes. St Joe's often cites the (usually modest) accomplishments of alums which I chalk up not to superior education by ANY means but rather that a large proportion of SJCI students hail from Buffalo old money. The silver-spoon ideal is most prevalent. I had some good and some awful teachers. The principal was as far as I could tell excellent. But none of this counters the fact that at SJCI you get access to fewer resources in a cash-strapped school with a student body small enough to be eclipsed by myriad nearby public schools.

    Greatest school ever. The principal and vice principals are incredible. All of the teachers are great and it's a great enviorment to be in. It's in a good neighborhood and has excellent education and sports. The AP classes and national recognized sports teams make St. Joe's the best school in the city.
