  • I loved the school and the teachers were great I'll miss them truly. The teachers would never say something like "you deserved it." whoever you are that said your child told you that then your child might have pushed him to say that because we ARE very disciplined. God Bless Saint Joseph School

  • I think this school is good and bad I have recently gone there. I can say that now two or three teachers have started to discipline the children.

    Sadly the Archdiocese wants to shut the school down.

  • It's funny they have teachers rating their school and parents that are friends of faculty. This school is run wrong. Here's discipline a boy told my child to f himself in the 5th grade, he told the teacher the teachers comment, "You probably deserved it!!!!!!!!" Save your money. And the kids that graduated, a lot of those "angels"are on facebook drinking alcohol underage.

  • Disappointing at best, many people are biased because they are friends with the faculty/principal. If you have nothing else to compare it to of course you would say it is great. There is no discipline and if you are friends with the right people things are ignored.
