St. Joseph Elementary School

St. Joseph Catholic School was founded in 1885 by German immigrants, and has a long tradition of academic excellence with a Christian focus.
Formerly directed by the Sisters Adorers of the Blood of Christ, St. Joseph School is staffed with a fully licensed faculty for grades kindergarten through eighth under the leadership of a full time priest.
Rooted in the teachings of Jesus, students are nurtured to develop a love for others as well as themselves, all along striving towards high academic achievement.
The classroom setting at St. Joseph School is both welcoming and constructive. With a low student to teacher ratio, individual attention is afforded to the student, thereby strengthening student/teacher relationships.
Our faculty has high expectations for all students, giving encouragement and support throughout their learning and development.
St. Joseph school is a part of the Diocese of Dodge City, and is fully accredited by the Kansas State Board of Education through the Kansas Quality Performance Accreditation process.
St. Joseph School provides the community with students who will take their place in society as productive citizens instilled with Catholic values.
