Our daughter is looking forward to middle school at St. Joseph. She loves the experiments in the new science program. She is in an advanced math class. Her writing has improved a lot this past year. The bullying problem that we had at our old public school doesn't exist here. She is happier than she's ever been!

My child went to school at St. Joseph's for two years. We decided to send him to public school this year. If you are Catholic, this would likely be your school. It is small and the kids all seem to do well academically. The religious studies program is good. We found, however, that our son's individual needs, were addressed better in public school. As a student advanced in both reading and math, he was given grade level work throughout both years at this school whereas in public school he has consistently been given work that is based on his academic functioning as opposed to his age.
