I switched from hybrid homeschooling to our parish school, not bc of shortcomings with the homeschooling program, but bc of some major strengths here. It was really important that our children be able to go to mass with their peers and teachers to see their faith in practice. We also appreciate the multicultural aspect's encouraging to see these families being supported, working hard and thriving. The academics aspect have been strong as well-our son's teachers often try to challenge him beyond what he already knows if he needs it. They have been nurturing and wonderful the past three years and we look forward to the middle school years here!

St. Joseph has been the best place for my family over the past 4 years. The teachers are AMAZING and so dedicated to working with you to be a partner in your child's education. The entire school community, Admin, office staff, support staff, and parents are invested in making sure all students at the school are receiving the best to prepare students for success in all aspects of life. We are happy to have found the best school for our kids.

I am really excited that St. Joseph Catholic School has decided to place FDA-approved Air Purification systems in every classroom and throughout the school. I know there is a lot of debate going on with what should be done in schools but this certainly helps me feel more comfortable with my kid's school environment.

My granddaughter has attended St Joseph's since kindergarten and has received a very high quality and caring education. Everyone at the school from the office to the teachers and administrators has been caring, helpful and always willing to problem solve and issues that come up, particularly once COVID-19 started. The teachers have been willing to go the extra mile to make sure a student is successful including arranging after school tutoring and small group instruction during the day as needed. I feel she will be prepared for high school academically as well as having participated in the Catholic philosophy as it is lived at school.

I can not say enough about the school. My wife and I looked all over and visited many schools in our search for the best place for our child. We walked away from our first visit knowing St Joseph Catholic School was the right place. The kids are great, friendly, and kind. The teachers and administration are all extremely helpful and supportive. Between the faculty, administration, parents and the children, the school embodies the spirit of a community.

My older son is in 1st grade and my youngest is in the pre-k (little disciples) program and we love it there. My wife and I are both involved in some capacity. We feel it is a quality school with a great environment and education for the kids while enhancing their Christian belief. We plan to be here through their 8th grade year.

Excellent school! When we joined St. Joseph 8 years ago, we joined a strong and supportive community that has become our second family. The teachers and staff at St. Joseph bring their love for children and passion for education to the classroom every day. The education our children are receiving is exceptional, combines strong academics and a variety of extra-curricular activities, all in a nurturing faith-based environment. Best decision we've made for our children and our family!

St. Joseph Catholic School is a fantastic school. The STREAM education (STEM+arts and religion) develops the whole child and pushes the children to apply their knowledge in multiple areas. My children are nurtured and challenged — and they love it! The response to covid has been exceptional as well. Large classrooms, open windows, masks, etc., give the children the safest environment possible to continue in-person learning. The teachers and staff have worked above and beyond for the benefit of the children. They are truly an amazing group of people.

The teachers and staff of St. Joseph are amazing. They make my two kids feel safe, welcomed, and loved while at school which helps them learn better. My kids really love the Spanish and art classes offered to them in addition to their regular classes. I have been very pleased with the level of support and consistency that we see from the teachers as well. We highly recommend this school.
