My daughter started preschool at Saint Joseph School last year, and I couldn't be happier. The parent/teacher communication is amazing. My daughter loves the school. The staff (not only her teachers) greet her daily with a smile on their face. The classrooms are always clean, there is a great curriculum (it is not like a daycare), and my daughter made tons of new friends!

As a mother of an alumna and a current student, I couldn't be more pleased with what St. Joseph School has done for my girls. The amazing students, faculty, and staff make my daughter excited about school every day. My oldest daughter couldn't have been more prepared for high school when she graduated from St. Joes. Aside from this, there is no better phrase to describe this school than unconditional love. Our community goes through everything as one. The teachers truly love their work and treat their classes like family. Both of my daughters have created bonds at this school that will last a lifetime.

We joined the St. Joseph's School community in 2006. It was the best decision we could have made for our family. The teachers provided an exceptional base to help our children succeed in high school and college. Our youngest child is now entering 7th grade. When we had friends and family with children, the same age wondering what theirs schools would be doing during COVID, our child was already virtually learning. The school was up and running in days. Our daughter felt safe, connected and was learning no worry about how we would need to teach at home. Heading into the Fall, I do not know if our child will be virtually learning, in school full-time or on a hybrid model. But what I do know is I don't need to worry, I know that she will receive a full 7th grade education safely.
