    Great education but the principle he doesn't confront matters in the right way. it seems that he cares more about the students/parents who donate money to the school and among the whole faculty you can see the difference in the special treatment toward these students.

    The faculty and administration are extremely responsive to the needs of parents and students. It a wonderful academic environment where the values of your Catholic faith are instlled into the students.

    My children attended other Catholic Schools over the years and this one was the best! I appreciated the discipline and respect it instilled in my children. Academically the middle school is very challenging but this made their high school years more relaxed. We have many wonderful memories of the teachers friends and activities.

    When I was a student I thought the teachers were really tough and strict. I loved and hated it. When I went to high school I knew more than my peers. I was one of the best students in my public school. My family moved out of state but I continued to be at the top of my class and I know I owe this to those strict teachers and high expectations. I earned a college scholarship and I know if I ever have children St. Joseph's is where I'd send my kids.

    I think the teachers are pretty strict but I know its good even though I been there since 3rd grade I know because I was in Loretto and it wasn`t like that at all! I`m going to 6th next year and I think it will be great and hard.

    St. Joseph School is a family's educational dream. The school leadership fosters an environment that is rich in faith foundation academic excellence and promotes a focus on the development of the whole child. The community is welcoming engaged and supportive. The academics are consistent and the school offers an extraordinary music theatre and fine arts program from Pre-K through 8th.

    The overall academics of this school are wonderful. The teachers work hard to make each student learn the material and they involve parents if necessary. The overall curriculum is a strong one based in respect to each other and establishing responsiblity on the individual. My son attended this school for the last 2 years and I have never had a problem with him not wanted to go to school. He loves it. This offers a variety of sports program. They also offer art classes and music starting at kindergarten. Parental involvement is what this school is about.
