I absolutely love this school! My dad graduated from here many moons ago and I am proud to say our daughter (his grandkids) will be attending here from PreK to 8th grade! I have so many nice things I can say about the school from the outstanding principal to the greatest admissions to the nicest and caring teachers! This school is awesome and I am a proud parent of a Wolfpack kid!

Being a relatively new family to St. Joe's, I am so pleased with how we were welcomed into the school! My kids enjoy being here, like their teachers very much, and enjoy playing sports for their school. The administration and staff has the students' best interests at heart. I would make the same decision to send my kids here 1,000 times over again!
