  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on January 15, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school boasts excellent academics in a strong family environment. It has been proven that a large percentage of St. Joseph's students go on to make the honor roll and high honor roll at the local high school. The principal, Ms. Scheffler, is very hands on throughout all the grade levels including the pre-school programs. She knows all the kids by name, making a point to sit down with each student to review their report card. My family was new this year to St. Joe's and we have felt so accepted and have had such a positive experience there. I highly recommend this school to anyone considering a Catholic education for their child.
