School Reviews

  • Recommended July 03, 2013 - At Saint Joseph''s your kids will learn and grow academically, ethically and personally. If your looking for strong academics in a safe community where a strong moral compass and parental involvement is apart of daily life you will love SJCS. We have two children both very different learning styles and personalities; they both excel and have areas of improvement just like most kids. The teachers are insightful, informative, approachable and responsive. Academics are above standard, and we are always up to speed on daily classroom life and homework, which is great! - Posted by Parent
