I am a parent of two graduates and a Garden City resident. . Both children attended from N-8 and attended Their first choice Catholic high school - where they excelled academically and are now enrolled in a top 30 college. St Joe`s prepared them academically for a rigorous high school curriculum and served as a outstanding foundation for their continued success. Moreover, they were nurtured in a caring, values-based environment fostered by teachers, staff and an engaged parent community. Bullying didn`t happen at St. Joe`s - and if negative behavior happened - they are kids after all ! - there was a prompt response by faculty and admin alike. It`s a real community at St Joe`s - welcoming to all and dedicated to ensuring your child thrives in a supportive and personalized environment. Lucky to have a great option like St Joe`s in Garden City and the best investment we could have made for our family.
