St. Joseph High School Reviews

This school has the potential of being an extremely beneficial environment for the girls that attend it. However, there are multiple factors that stunt this school's growth. Primarily, the administration. Though I could provide a list, it is mainly due with our privilege and freedom as high school students. There is a prominent focus on rigorous discipline rather than making our studies more intensive. They have only started implementing AP classes last year, and not even providing many options. Many students can agree that there are only a couple of good and reliable teachers, whereas the rest only do the minimum without caring about the students whatsoever. The facilities are also the minimum with no proper gym or auditorium (they are the same room). Classrooms usually use chalkboards and only some have working smartboards. There are some extracurriculars and it is easy to make friends through them, but only the sports teams get recognition and funding.

I mean the best thing about this school is how the teachers truly care about your work. Unlike many other schools, teachers here are ALWAYS worried about you, even if your grades are not as great as others. This school is very diverse with students ranging from Hispanic to African American and everyone fits in. Our athletic program is getting better with basketball, track, and step teams having won championships. Even though we don’t have many outside school activities like parties, if your part of the student leaders program you can always suggest it and they actually do take it into consideration. The best part is the LUNCH because our lunch isn’t the same as NYC public school lunches so we always have something good (fries taste just like the ones from McDonald’s). Another great thing here at St. Joseph’s is how everyone is welcoming, just don’t bother the juniors cause they think they are the kings of the school.
This school is not as good as I expected it to be. They began implementing AP courses just last year, with not many classes to offer. The school focuses more on disciplining the students over teaching them, with administration constantly implementing ridiculous rules that don't benefit the student in any way. They also began implementing the YONDR program, which means that your phone has to be locked in a pouch all day, and failure to do so means suspension. There are a few good teachers that truly put effort into their work, as well as ensure that their students have their needs well met. The rest of them show that they are only concerned about meeting the bare minimum to keep their job. With regards to the campus, it's a tall building in Downtown Brooklyn that lacks facilities such as a proper gym. However, the extra curricular activities are nice, and you can make friends from them easily. The food is also decent, although you have to pay for it.
