My daughter started at St. Joe's in 2003 as a rambunctious, energetic 3 year old. This spiring, she will graduate as a composed, confident 14 year old. As a parent of an ADHD child I cannot say enough about the teachers at SJMS. They helped to identify her learning issues and helped to develop a plan after she was diagnosed. If she had gone to any other school, I am confident that she would not be as confident and accomplished a learner that she is today. This school (and the children who attend it) accepts all children no matter their look, size, religion, quirkiness, or other oddities. I love it.

My daughter loves going to school. The teachers are well versed in Montessori theory and have allowed my child to develop at her own pace. She excels here.
