St. Joseph School is a Catholic parish school rooted in Gospel values and dedicated to the spiritual growth and educational development of the whole child.
St. Joseph School is an integral part of the educational mission of St. Joseph Parish.
Our aim is to nurture the growth of the whole child: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.
We strive to affirm the worth of each student.
We assist parents, the primary religious educators of their children, in imparting an understanding and appreciation of our Catholic faith.
We strive to build a faith community among students, faculty, and parents that supports and encourages living out Gospel values in the home, school, and society.
Our purpose is to enable students to become Catholic leaders who now and in the future actively promote peace and justice in our world.

School Reviews

  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - My child went to school at St. Joseph''s for two years. We decided to send him to public school this year. If you are Catholic, this would likely be your school. It is small and the kids all seem to do well academically. The religious studies program is good. We found, however, that our son''s individual needs, were addressed better in public school. As a student advanced in both reading and math, he was given grade level work throughout both years at this school whereas in public school he has consistently been given work that is based on his academic functioning as opposed to his age. - Posted by Parent
