    Saint Joe High School is a school that focuses on creating a positive learning environment that keeps my kids smiling and motivated to do their best. As a parent of two current students, a freshman and a junior, I couldn't be more pleased with our kids' spiritual, academic, athletic, and social development. I think what impresses me most is the confidence that our kids possess. And I feel that is a direct result of the the teachers and staff continually supporting and encouraging our kids to always reach higher. That support starts with the enthusiasm of Principal Kennedy and is projected throughout the building. That energy is contagious and that is the environment I want for our kids!
    When you think about sending your child to a high school... it can be scary! I do believe my daughter could have received a great education at any of the area's peer high schools. But the moment I walked into Saint Joseph High School, I was so impressed with not only how aesthetically beautiful the school was, but how friendly and dedicated the staff and teachers are.... as well as the kids walking around laughing and talking in the halls. There was life in this school. It was not just a school, it was a community.

    Over the last three years, my daughter has received an education that we have no doubts will prepare her for any college. No one expects high school to be easy, but what she has learned during her time at St. Joe is setting her up for success and I am truly grateful for that.
