School Reviews

5.0 Stars   05/17/16
This has been, over the past several years, consistently the most amazing education experience for my children I could ever have anticipated. The acedemics are full spectrum, including music, art, and science and are top notch. Every teacher has been wonderful. Knowledge is instilled in the kids with consistent kindness. None of my children have experienced bullying. When it becomes apparent anywhere on the grounds, it is handled beautifully, with the swiftness only available due to the lack of bureaucracy. You have to experience the sense of community for yourself to get it. Over the years I have made great friends as well although that was not on the original agenda as to why we chose Joseph's.
