I loved the environment at Saint Joe! Overall, the students are welcoming and the teachers show passion for their subjects and care for their students. While not every person is competitive, honors and AP classes can be very stressful, so I would appreciate if the counseling office offered more resources for students struggling with mental health. Besides that, my experience was positive and I learned the value of service and Catholic education.

It's a good school but the food sucks, and I mean SUCKS. Honors and AP teachers are incredible but regular teachers don't care. I think that it's a great school overall if you're taking the right classes, however, you do not get prepared for the rigor of the real world. Take as many honors and AP classes as you can, along with at least one sport and a few clubs and you will have a good high school experience. Hope this helps at least a little bit!
In the many years of going to St. Joe it has been a very positive experience. Performing with the orchestra, or relaxing day in American Sign Language Club.
It is important to make sure teachers are easy to work with. Here they make classes engaging and hands-on. At all grade level students should have no troubles learning everyday!
The music programs we have are the best of the best. The band, orchestra, and choir have won multiple awards, always going to competitions, and developing family like environment.
At the home of the Bears we believe your education comes first before sports. But after you earn your right to be on a team. There's a wide variety to choose from. Golf, basketball, swimming, softball and more!
St. Joe welcomes everyone. The school has really made it a home away from home. I'm thankful that I have had the opportunity to come to excellent school.
