St Joseph Public Schools was, as I’m seeing now, academically perfect in every way to prepare a student for college. However, the administration and staff (teachers) are very unsupportive of their students and let kids fail without giving any aid, as well as not catering for the student that wants to go into a profession with no need for a college education and need basic life skills, not general education. Instead of focusing everything on education like they are now, I’d like to see SJPS make a morale change in students so that the academically challenged aren’t shamed upon, but rather catered to in a unique way.

I have been a Saint Joseph Bear since kindergarten, so going through the years there with childhood friends has lead to a great experience in the district. Saint Joseph High School has been recently renovated with all new smart class rooms, brand new student center, and a new football field. Having high quality facilities has made going to school something I look forward to. Every teacher I've had has been enthusiastic about their job, to the point where almost every student in my classes has enjoyed them all. They teach us that the goal in school is learning, not the letter grade. The advanced level of learning prepares all students for a future in college.
Most of the teachers seem to really care about student's personal life and the achievements they obtain. They are very flexible with getting extra help before and after school, too. The programs they offer, including CTE, really help students take classes about what they're interested in, not just classes that school require.
