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.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
