I am in the 7th grade. It is a very challenging school but they do teach me about what I need in the near future. We are one big community. My parent enrolled me the kindergarten class. This school is not just a school but a community, family, and most of all home.

Our daughter has attended St Joseph's for 5 years, going into her 6th year. I love the compassion the teachers have for each and every student attending the school. One of my first solid impressions of the school was how all of the teachers seem to know all of the students by first name. Also, the students are always extremely polite when I am visiting and always holding the door and using their manners. The school also received the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence again this past year. If you want your child to have a solid education and strong Christian foundation, this is the place for your child(ren).

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.
