School Reviews

Our daughter was at St. Joseph School for 6 years and had a great experience. She was academically challenged and was taught about being personally responsible for her decisions and results. Her success as a high school senior heading to college reflects the solid academic and moral foundation she experienced at SJCS. Love the teachers. I would highly recommend it.
