St Joseph Elementary School

  • St. Joseph School is part of a Catholic Parish Community, made up of individuals striving for the common goal to be "grounded in the values and truths of our Catholic faith".
  • We are concerned with modeling the values and principles of Jesus and instilling these in our children.
  • In partnership with parents, who are the primary educators, we believe that given the right conditions, all children can learn.
  • St. Joseph school, staff, parents, and parish family are committed to teaching quality, Christ-centered Catholic beliefs and values.
  • Our uniqueness is displayed in our staff dedication, parental involvement, and community pride which make St. Joseph a leader in academic excellence, social integration and appreciation of each individual as a Child of God.
  • Our philosophy of education is based on the belief that all truth is from God, the divine Creator.
  • We are committed to teaching students that God's truth is the integrating factor for all of life.
  • Therefore, our educational curriculum encompasses religious and general academic studies.
