SJS has been a wonderful place for our children to receive their elementary and middle school education. The quality of the education that they have received, paired with the other important components of educating the whole child including character building and sense of belonging to an important community, has been wonderful. I highly recommend SJS!

SJS has a small setting but, a large return for the student. Its spirited atmosphere prepares the student for life skills. Each student participates in everything, from sports to the talent show, allowing them to decide the area in which they would like to grow. Strong and caring staff. A hidden gem. Very pleased. Visit today!

SJS is the right blend of challenging academically, opportunity in extracurriculars and small enough to be a real community. I couldn't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.

The SJS community is wonderful. We are blessed to be a part of it and to have this school option for our children. They are learning values, faith, and academics in a cohesive learning environment.

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.
