St. Joseph Grade School

St. Joseph School mission is to provide a quality Catholic education, respectful of individual differences, by offering a personalized, interactive curriculum that promotes mastery of communicative, technological, creative, scientific and social skills, whose foundation is Christ and His teachings.
We believe that Christ is the reason for St. Joseph School.
He is the unseen but ever present teacher in our classes, the model for our faculty, the inspiration of our children and their parents.
This quality Catholic education builds the self esteem of our students and prepares them to be future Catholic leaders in both our parish and community.
We strive to provide a program of academic excellence in which students learn self-discipline and respect for others while developing a strong, positive self-image while at worship, study, work or play.
Through a variety of teaching methods, instruction involves pupils in critical thinking yet is sequential, flexible, challenging and success-oriented.
We believe that it is essential for parents and faculty to be partners in this shared venture through open and honest communication, mutual respect, and shared trust.
