Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart Reviews

The teachers at this school are very friendly but the education is low. There are no AP classes here because it's IB and the honor classes are learning almost the same thing as the regular classes. The things that are taught here are basically a review of eighth grade work. The clubs here are great, which is something everyone likes here. Once a sophmore, gym class is only for current people. There are sports here like soccer, basketball and volleyball. I would love to see a change in the education and gym for everyone.

Friends and teachers are great! Wall-to-wall IB was the worst decision to have ever been made along with the terrible lunches.
I was pleasantly surprised when I started my freshmen year at Josephinum. I originally didn't want to attend an All-Girls school but after a while I can to love the school. One of the best things about this school is how committed each of the teachers and faculty are. They truly care about their students and will do everything they can to see their students succeed and go off to college or figure out what they want to do after high school. It's rare to find such a happy and laid back atmosphere like the one I found in Josephinum. Becuase of the five goals of the sacred heart, the faculty and staff give the students wise freedom which allows the students to grow and feel like the school is a safe and fun place to be at.
