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.

Academics at St. Joe are the best in SWM for sure, as are our facilities and sports. However, freedom of student speech and involvement on campus are very limited. Students are not challenged to come up with solutions to problems. If a student were to bring about a change, it would most likely not be allowed. The administration is beyond controlling and this provides for a suffocating environment.
St. Joseph High School has a wide rage of classes to choose from and allows you to take many advanced classes that other schools do not offer. St. Joe is an unique school because of its BYOD program where students are able to bring in their own laptops and use them for class. This allows students to prosper more during class. The teachers are friendly and many stay after school or are there before school to help students who don't understand the subject material. Teachers want students to thrive and do the best they can to prepare them. St. Joe's sports teams do well when competing and these teams are a great way to meet new people and try new things. There are many clubs at St. Joe, ranging from Baking Club to Model United Nations. If none of these clubs interest you, then anyone is welcome to create their own club. St. Joe is an outstanding school with strong academics, successful sports teams, and creative clubs and activities.
