St Joseph University School
- St. Joseph Elementary School is the oldest, continually operational Catholic elementary school in the City of Buffalo.
- St. Joseph School opened its doors in 1849 as a German school.
- Our mission is to provide the highest quality Catholic education possible, in an atmosphere of worship, warmth, and wisdom; and to instill the values of living Christ's word, sharing his word, and loving all without exception.
- We believe education is the means through which children are guided in their life-long quest of becoming responsible members of our world community.
- Such a pursuit involves, on our part, the earnest endeavor to discover and cultivate the individual talents of each child and the sincere effort to develop a healthy self esteem which is the basis of ultimate respect for humanity and the world.
- We believe we can attain this end most effectively by communicating the message of Jesus, not only by word, but also by example, thus creating a genuine faith community in which both students and staff can grow in wisdom and grace.
- Since love of neighbor is the touchstone of a truly Christian life, we will encourage students to engage in service outside the school community, thus carrying the gospel message to others more effectively.
