School Reviews

I have been with the SJA school FAMILY for 10 years now. I could most certainly write about all the fabulous things previously mentioned in the above reviews. But I''m going to write something that sums it up from my child''s perspective; which is priceless. When my family experienced a life changing event, my middle child looked at me and one of his first concerns was this: "Can we keep going to St. Joan of Arc?" What 4th. grade boy has that as a top concern? Sometime later when the life changes continued, he looked at me and said "Will I get to keep going to St. Joan of Arc through 8th. grade?" Sure, I could rave about the wonderful attributes that have been mentioned, because yes, I agree with all of them. However, I think my child sums it up. This is their family. This is their home away from home. This is their safe zone, as well as the place that is more than preparing them for their future. I have had many friends who, after hearing me rave about the SJA family, finally witnessed the SJA family in action, and all they could say was, " I see what you have been talking about." No one needs to look very hard to see the incredible teachers, students, families, and staff we have at St. Joan of Arc. It is an incredible community that continues to prepare our children for life in a faith based setting that is second to none.

This is our fifth year at St. Joan of Arc with three children currently in the school. From the beginning, St. Joan of Arc felt like a family. In the morning, there is always someone to greet the kids with a warm smile at the front entrance. The academic program is excellent and the children are challenged to think critically, problem solve, and work in teams. Spanish is even being taught at the early grades! Enrichment further challenges our children in a fun and experiential manner. Also there are services for speech and help with reading and math as needed. We are especially happy with the faith base education that St. Joan of Arc provides. Faith and values are integrated within the curriculum; faith is not taught only in religion class. There are many opportunities for extracurricular activities including sports, plays/musicals, the band, quiz bowl, Boy Scouts, and much more. We could not be happier with St. Joan of Arc.

This is my family''s fourth year at St. Joan of Arc School. My kids are both doing excellent with caring, dedicated teachers and I am certain that they will be fully prepared educationally & will have a smooth transition into high school. Also very important to our family was our kids being raised within a faith filled environment. My kids participate in Spanish, Computer, Music, Enrichment, Gym, Art & Accelerated Reader programs as well as having access to extracurricular activities such as Band, Drama Club, Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls. They can participate in many different sports such as cross country, volleyball, basketball, soccer, cheer and football. Since I am a stay at home mom, one of the things that was important to me was the ability to volunteer. St. Joan of Arc welcomes participation by parents to volunteer in the library, helping in the classroom, reading to the kids, helping out in computer classes and encourages involvement in your child''s learning experience. Also new this year, St. Joan of Arc assigned an Ambassador family to each new family enrolled at the school so that new parents would have a contact that could assist them with all questions that they would have, and to keep them informed about all school activities.

We were relocated 2 years ago to the Toledo area. We took a tour of St. Joan of Arc and immediately felt like part of the community. SJA is a wonderful school with a variety of opportunities. The teachers my children have had are all excellent. They have had the opportunity to play various sports, starting in kindergaden. Their faith based education has been very important in their education, but the extras they get from SJA are exceptional. Band, computer, art, music, Spanish and enriched math (upper grades) are all part of the weekly schedule. The academics are great and the school as a while does a wonderful job of preparing kids with a well rounded education.

St. Joan of Arc School has been a part of our family for many years. The quality education our children have received is exceptional! Our oldest graduated from SJA and was very well prepared for high school. He was eligible for AP and Honor level classes as were many others in his graduating class. We are also pleased that our children can participate in Band, sports, enriched Math, Spanish & computer classes as part of their daily schedule. St. Joan of Arc School also provides the strong faith based environment that is very important to our family. To say we are a close community is an understatement! I have witnessed our community come together to support someone in need on numerous occasions. We are proud to be part of this family!
