    I want to first of all mention that St. Joseph school is a remarkable school. Both my husband and myself went to Catholic grade school and I also went to Catholic High School so I think I have a pretty good perspective when it comes to Catholic education. St. Joseph by far exceeded my expectations. The school is small but the teachers and staff are dedicated and provide a quality education. I just wish I could let more people know what they are missing out on when they don't think of this school when they begin to enroll their children this Spring. Please give St. Joe's a look call and speak to Mrs. Smith the principal. She'd gladly give you a tour.

    St. Joseph's is a wonderful school. The teachers and administration are firmly committed to providing a quality educational experience for our children in a safe and warm environment. We are a close knit group and everyone looks out for one another. If you are looking for a school take a look at St. Joseph!

    I disagree with the reviews. The school is nickel and dimeing everyone. Not all but some of the teachers are organization. Lack of communication is a huge problem in the school. Some teachers don't keep up with their grading.

    My child loves going to school at St Joseph's. Her teachers truly take an interest in each child. The average class size of 14/15 provides an ideal educational experience with more attention given to each child. A hot lunch is provided. If living in the Lake County School district bus service is available. If looking for a catholic school please check out St Joseph's!

    St. Joe's has a new excellent principal who has made substantial improvements to the school such as Spanish being added to the curriculum. The teachers are kind have a lot of experience and have excellent knowledge of the material they're teaching. I subbed for almost all the grades K-8 and I got to know the students. They are very well-disciplined polite organized and have very high morals. On top of that most of the students earn A's and B's. In addition to getting to know the students while I subbed I got a sense of how structured and well-planned the teachers are. The students followed their daily routines so well in spite of having a sub. The first graders knew over half of the state capitals and that was only halfway through the school year. The 7th graders can do algebra and have high-standard writing skills. I love St. Joe's!
