School Reviews

5  
My son attended St. Joseph School from preschool through 8th grade, then went on to graduate from Eastside Catholic School as an Honors Student. We found the community of St. Joseph School to be friendly, welcoming and nurturing throughout the years. The administration and staff worked hand in hand with parents to ensure the success of every student, and though the experience wasn't without its "bumps" at times, the overall outcome for my son and our family was extremely positive. The education my son received at St. Joseph School prepared him well for the rigorous academic expectations of Eastside Catholic; and he developed life-long friendships that he continues to foster through his college years. As a parent, I was involved as a volunteer and enjoyed the camaraderie with other parents over the years, many of whom remain close friends. I would definitely recommend St. Joseph School if you are looking for a close-knit community, small class sizes and a quality Catholic education.
