This school is strong in academics and has helped nuture kindness and respect in my children. Our two kids have grown as individuals and future leaders in the community. I couldn't be more pleased with the last 6+ years at this wonderful school.

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.

We love SJ! My child has been in the St. Joseph community since he was 2 and we have felt truly blessed. Amazing teachers, caring administrators, and overall a sense of family.

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.
