I honestly can’t say enough about St. Joseph School in Wakefield. I have sons in 6th grade and 7th grade. The small class sizes allow for individualized attention. This school has some of the most creative, unique, caring teachers that I’ve ever encountered. The 5th grade teacher does a lot of project based learning that encompasses research, writing, presentations, creating a model (ex. a Mayan temple), and learning culturally relevant songs. The creative writing program is second to none. It is excellent preparation for their rigorous middle school program that will prepare them well for any high quality private or public high school. Our students are known for their comfort in public speaking; they get a lot of practice.
The small class sizes also allow the teachers to stay on top of monitoring social media etc. that our middle schoolers may be on. They are positioned well to make sure our kids navigate these waters safely and appropriately. St. Joseph School is a gem!

St. Joseph's School-Wakefield is a school of LOVE! My son has now been at this school now for four years. This has been such a beautiful school environment for us. My son feels like this school is his second family. He feels safe, loved, protected and most of all SUCCESSFUL! He is getting such a stellar, well-rounded education! With the small classes, he gets a lot of attention, in the academic subjects and more! He has extraordinary teachers that go the extra mile in providing a personalized education. He thrives in this small environment. He has learned a lot about his faith. His faith-based learned has created a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE in his heart and soul. I have truly cherished his education here at St. Josephs. I made the best decision to put my child here at St. Josephs. A true treasure!
We LOVE this school! We have been at the school for 5 years. The faculty and administration care about each student. There is a wonderful community of parents who support one another. The academics are fantastic. My children are challenged and love to go to school each day. There are great after school activities (drama, ski, basketball, track, chess, test kitchen, etc). Students are respectful and kind. The "buddy program" (older and younger students are paired up) is a favorite for all of my children. The Early Childhood Program is amazing, with a ton of full and half day options to meet various family needs. We couldn't be happier!
