My older kids have attended the school back in the early 2000 and back at it again for my youngest child. So happy to keep my child in a private school where learning our faith is just as important. Glad that the education provided is helpful in challenging their abilities.

I grew up studying in a Catholic school and as a parent; I wanted the same quality education that I had been given to pass down to my children. I am very happy that I have the opportunity to enroll my child at Saint Joseph School as it has given my son the same quality of education that I had and also taught him to be a good Catholic. Mr. Donohue, our principal, is very professional and friendly at the same time. With my experience, he never leaves any of my emails unanswered. He helps a lot in informations that I need and if we needed guidance/assistance. I can say that they have very competent teachers who are also understanding and very flexible in my child's needs, pandemic or not! School staffs are highly trained, resourceful and helpful. I never had a bad experience with them. Very knowledgeable, friendly and polite in phone or in person. From the principal, teachers, staffs and Fr. Greg as well as the Church staffs, they are highly trained professionals with a HEART!

My daughter just started at St Joseph school this year and I`m happy I made this choice for her education. The school is a community and everyone has been super supportive. During Covid it`s been a trying time for everyone but this school has been exceptionally informative regarding implementation of procedures and protocols to keep the students and staff safe. I feel like the staff all cares about their jobs from the principal down to the Maintanance staff and everyone in between that keep the school functioning. Pros: instant communication with the teacher via an app that`s used, people care about each other and the students, the education level is higher than many surrounding public schools. Cons: limited sports, class size could be smaller, required volunteer hours can be difficult to complete (but they try and work with you on this)I would recommend this school.

St. Joseph provides a friendly, familiar, professional, and academic environment for students to succeed. From the janitor to the secretary to the teacher and the principal, St. Joseph shows that its goal is to provide an excellent education for their children in their everyday activities. St. Joseph provides a challenging and rewarding curriculum, opportunities to do sports, engage in science and computer projects, and the chance to grow in music and arts.
