    "My child attended K & 1st grade. Having been in daycare since he was 3 months old he was fairly advanced when he started there. I should have pulled him out the first year when on the first day of K, the teacher informed them that they would be learning the alphabet!!! Which my son learned when he was 2. We thought 1st grade would be better, but it was much of the same. Unfortunately, the curriculum was lacking and he was bored all of the time. He would come home crying that he was "too bad for St Joes!", broke my heart. He is now flourishing in his current school and I hope those first 2 years didn't damage his resolve."

    "This is an excellent school with the right balance of academics and activities. Our children switched from a public school and struggled at first to keep up to the pace and academic demands. The teachers and administration were exceptionally supportive and I can say with confidence that we attribute our children's 'academic turnaround' to the solid footing that they have received at St Josephs. Well worth the money."

    "My child gratuated from this school last year and is excelling in high school. I can contribute this to his hard work and to St. Joseph's where he spent K-8. I have another child there now and will send our other children there as well. A very loving, peaceful, safe environment for education. Class sizes are greatly reduced since another Catholic School was built several years ago. We struggle to pay high property taxes but are willing to sacrifice to pay additional for St. Joes."

    "With the addition of a full time Art teacher and Music teacher this year it has finally brought the school full circle. I highly recommend this elementary school. The extra curricular activites are wonderful. Great teachers and a really great environment for your kids to be in! Everyone is friendly and goes out of their way to help the children achieve the best they can in school."

    "I was a former student at St.Joseph's but I left the other year. I had a bad experience because I didn't have good quality teachers,and too big of a class size.The children were not well behaved, and would goof off while class was in session and made everyone unfocused.The academics weren't challenging for me, and I found it boring. I didn't like the school community and don't recommend this school."
