    St. Joseph overall is a decent school. It’s very good school for Nursing. It’s very small so it’s the teachers actually know you by name. The classroom settings are very intimate so it’s really hard to fail. However, with all this there’s still a couple of things I would change. The school isn’t as diverse as I would have hoped. Also, they usually have one teacher for the harder classes such as math, science class or English. This makes it very difficult if you do fail a class because you end up with the same teacher again. That can be a good and bad thing. With all this said, St. Joseph’s definitely is leading me in the right direction when it comes to my nursing career. So I’m thankful for that.

    I personally have had a great time at St. Joe’s. The atmosphere helps one adjust to high school/adult life very quickly as well as allows everyone to make friends that will last forever. The teachers, for the most part, care about you and want you to do your best. I had many teachers that I absolutely loved and thought were great, but like every school there were also one or two that I didn’t particularly think highly of. The athletics department is really great and they have state of the art facilities on the premises, unlike some other private schools in the area.
    SJCI was and continues to be a great environment for molding boys into cultured young men prepared for the rigorous studies in college. I learned about not only the studies required to graduate, but about what it takes to be a man of integrity through many activates for enrichment, clubs, and trips that taught me how to live. The teachers were all knowledgeable in the material that they taught, and the coaches taught good sportsmanship as well as how to play the many sports.
