We love it at SJS! We started here over four years ago, and wouldn't change our decision. From the teachers to the staff, everyone is caring and loving and makes each child feel loved and welcome. The teachers are so great and supportive of their students, and you can really tell (and see) that they want our children to succeed and have fun while doing so.

St. Joseph School has been a wonderful experience for our family. We have two current students and one who just graduated and moved onto high school. Our time at SJS has been nothing but a positive experience. The teachers are very nurturing and committed. The administration is very responsive and is consistently looking for ways to better the school. The students can pick from various clubs, activities and sports. The Middle School offers leadership opportunities and really prepares the students for high school academically. It's a wonderful, friendly school community. My kids have always been happy here and they are receiving a top notch, faith-based education.
