    "We had 3 girls go through St Joe's and couldn't have been happier. From the education to the extra curricular and sports, our daughters loved every minute. They went to public high schools and were well ahead of the curve because of the preparation they were given at St Joe's."

    "Exercise caution when deciding to send your child here. If your son or daughter is young, in grades 1-4, you probably won't experience much of an issue. Later, or if your child is in the junior high, get ready for a storm. Students, parents, and even staff have been harassed, for lack of a better term, for exercising their First Amendment right in disagreeing with the principal on certain issues, for speaking out, and for freely thinking. Whole classes have been punished for the actions of a few. As the majority of you will probably not kiss up to the principal, I suggest you look at St. Dennis or another grade school. It would preserve your sanity in the long run. There are, or at least, have been, dedicated teachers. But the principal is a large factor that must be considered. -Class of 2011 Alumni"

    "School has high standards for both students and parents. Great academics, encompassed spiritual learning, tough policy on bullying, tight family community, and beautiful gym. Principal is very personable and involved; I think that s her nature. Some feel she is overbearing. we like the detail. She partners with parents to make the school and the students a success inside and outside the classroom. I do think she takes the school to very high levels, and that s why my kids are there! Some downers, tuition is high, compared to other schools, lots of attached fees - go up every year. The school tech lab is old, 90 s look and feel. some lower grades had 36 students to 1 teacher and 1 aid. this is high. The school library (in a basement hallway) has ancient books. Books brought home are usually old, faded, and very dusty. However, my kids brought back books at their level of advanced reading. I applaud this. Overall, compared to other high achieving schools, St. Joe s stands very tall. One of the best decision I have made."

    "SJS is a wonderful school and community of families, staff, and a principal who are committed not only to the academic achievements of the children, but also the moral character development. The academics are superior to any other school in the area. The students are well prepared to take on a rigorous high school program as well as exhibit compassion, and a love for Christ. We travel over 20 miles round trip daily for our children to receive a superior education. We have been nothing but highly impressed with the love and dedication of all teachers and staff. The personal attention to each student is remarkable. The teachers are very approachable and dedicated to the success of each and every student. I wouldn't send my children to any other school."
