St. Joseph Elementary School Reviews

Our son has been at St. Joe’s for two years now, and we couldn’t be happier! We were impressed right from our first school tour, and St. Joe’s has continued to exceed our expectations. Our son is thriving academically and socially, and our whole family has been welcomed into an amazing community of supportive and caring people. The teachers are passionate and instruct to the individual child, while still integrating the importance of serving each other and the community throughout their lessons. The curriculum is rigorous, but the focus is not only to have the students succeed academically, but also to be a good person. Our son loves his school, his teachers and the principal and sprints into the building each morning; each afternoon he’s picked up with a beaming smile, bursting to share his experiences from the day.

St. Joseph’s has been a fantastic decision for our family! The community spirit, engagement and passion of the teachers and staff and the the religious education are all phenomenal! Our children thrive academically and have an incredibly strong sense of community. Everyday when I drop my children off, they have smiles on their faces and go running in. I feel so at ease heading off to work, knowing they will carry those smiles throughout the day. As a parent of a severely allergic child, I also cannot stress enough how attentive the teachers and staff is to his safety. If you are even remotely considering St. Joseph’s definitely sign up for a tour. It has been a excellent decision for our family!
We have loved our experience at St. Joe's thus far. We have a second grader there now and our younger son will start in Kindergarten in September. We love the strong sense of community, the focus on academics and especially the importance of being not only a part of the St. Joe's community, but also the community around us. My son has had the opportunity to be involved in several service events that have been organized by St. Joes. This is something that instills a sense of responsibility and a realization that not everyone is afforded the same lot in life.
My son and my family have created strong bonds with the teachers and I have had an opportunity to be a part of the school on many levels (in the classroom, in the library, at major school events etc). I cannot recommend SJES highly enough. Do a tour and check it out for yourself!
