St. Joseph High School Reviews

It was an awesome high school where I felt truly at home. Located in Downtown Brooklyn, this all-girl institution prepared me and empowered me to enter the male-dominated society with the sufficient tools to make my own path towards happiness and success. The friends I made here are more than friends, they are sisters. Even after graduation, I still keep in contact with old faculty and teachers who continue to show their support. I would repeat these 4 years of high school with no doubt whatsoever. Best 4 years of my life!

I love the fact that the teachers in the school aren’t willing to see a student fell. Saint Joseph’s High School is an all girls school and it is indeed all about empowering women! It offers many opportunities for students of each race and ethnicity to express themselves in different and unique ways. Although this school may be a little small, it brings comfort to the students in the school and builds strong bonds.
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.
