    "Ehh St. Joe's is okay. I think the thing that irritates me most, besides the tuition, is how mediocre St. Joe's is in spite of its arrogance. For Christ's sake, the motto is "Where excellence is a habit, not a goal." The ego that stems from those words alone infuriates me, especially considering a) how few of its students attend top tier universities, b) the average to below average test scores, c) garbage extracurriculars (so-so math league, lazy and complacent student paper, sports that are usually nothing to write home about, no Future Business Leaders of America, below average Model UN), d) lack of interesting alumni, and e) some of the god awful teachers (some absolutely wonderful though). St. Joe's isn't bad by any means, and I'm not saying one should avoid sending his/her child to St. Joe's like the plague, but don't kid yourself into thinking that doing so is going to singlehandedly make your child's future better. Your son is JUST as likely to become a druggie community college drop-out bum whether he goes to St. Joe's or not. Excellence is NOT a habit here. Lowering our standards until we can relegate our mediocre accomplishment to "excellence" is."

    "Great school! Wonderful atmosphere. My son became much happier here after the public school. BUT, big disappointment - biology teacher. If you are interested in biology - consider other options."

    "From the moment I started to send my son to St Joes i have felt a sense of comfort. I trust the teachers and staff to provide my son with the best education available. It is well worth the price of tuition. This school has so much to offer your sons."

    "I feel overwhelmed whenever I am asked to give my opinion of this school. Words cannot express how much my husband and I love this school....it was the best possible choice for our freshman son and well worth the tuition we pay. I am not exaggerating when I say that my son is addicted to St. Joe's...he ALWAYS wants to be there! He played freshman football this past fall and is now on the freshman basketball team. He also joined a few clubs. To say that he has developed friendships with the other boys doesn't do these relationships justice. When my son walked through the doors of St. Joe's, he joined a brotherhood that has nothing to do with race or economics, but is based on a mutual educational experience. St. Joe's has provided my son with the most well-rounded and amazing academic, athletic and social experience. The curriculum is challenging and I know that he will be adequately prepared to handle the challenges of any elite college upon graduation from St. Joe's."

    "As a recently graduated student I can say with conviction that attending Saint Joseph high school was the best decision of my life. Some people claim my Alma Mater is soft on drugs, discipline, etc all I can stay to that is the ones making these comments are wrong. It is always said that there are three things the school will not look the other way: weapons, drugs, and attacking a teacher. The administration will throw you out with out a second thought. They have thrown out millionaires' children, big sport people, etc. They are committed to the notion that at St Joe's excellent is a habit, not a goal. The school's academic record speaks for itself. How people can talk down this school is beyond my comprehension. I have not formed many friendships at St Joe's, but I have formed brotherhoods. In my opinion it would be insulting to the men I went to school with to call them mere friends, they are much more, they are my brothers, and I would do anything for them. It saddens me to think that I will never be a student here again, but it brings me joy to think that one day I will have the honor to send my son here. God bless this school Bros Ronald, Ron, Paul, Mr Lechner thank you."
