St. Joseph Public Schools Reviews

As a senior attending St. Joseph High School, I would love for students younger than me to have the same advantages of the strengths of this school. I would also love for the school to to make a few minor adjustments to enhance the learning experience. If my school could bring back more spirit into everyday life, I feel our already great test scores and grades could rise even further. If we made this a place where you're proud to be a bear, more students would be excited for school. With that being said, St. Joseph Public Schools is a great district and is a great fit for many people.

Teachers need to be held to a higher standard(mostly good teachers however). The resources are available, but the money for clubs and activities needs to be more evenly provided. The classes are challenging enough, and there are some great outside resources for tutoring.
During my career at St. Joseph High School the faculty and staff were very student focused. They are available to students more than during class time. They want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to follow their dreams. If there was one thing I would like to see changed is the standardized testing. I am a firm believer that everyone learns and tests differently and these are not a true measure of what ones capabilities or knowledge.
