    "As always, be leery of five star ratings as no school is perfect. Also be leery of a one star rating as there are very few schools that are that horrendous. The truth is that this is solid three star mediocre school. It has good points and bad points. There are some great teachers at this school but there have also been some abysmal ones, teachers that were just not qualified or experienced enough to teach and the children suffered. The administration in the past has also held on to some teachers that have lost their enthusiasm and were just going through the motions, not employing new technology or teaching plans that reflect the most up to date research on variable learning styles and learning disabilities. The school also has a reputation for not adequately preparing middle school students for high school in the areas of math and science. Many parents have pulled their children out after fifth grade and enrolled them in public school. Also, be aware, even though this is a "Christian" school, bullying does occur. Children are bullied and more often than not, the bullies are never punished or held accountable. This is the fault of the administration."

    "We are very happy with St. Joe's. It was apparent right away that the faculty and administration want to work with you to provide the best, most well rounded education for your child. As parents, there is a sense that our opinions matter and are respected. It is obvious that the teachers and administration are working together as a team and really go above and beyond to make the school extraordinary. Academically, statistics show excellent results. Ultimately, we chose this school because we are confident that our children are being nurtured on both an academic and spiritual level."

    "St. Joseph School in Mechanicsburg is a wonderful learning institution with a staff that has the best interests of the students in mind. Not only do the students receive an excellent education, but they receive it in an atmosphere that promotes Christian values such as kindness and respect. I currently have two children at St. Joseph's school, and I am very pleased with the results. I would encourage anyone to send their children to St. Joseph's."

    "I have had one child go through St. Joe's and another child currently attending. The students are greeted with a smile in the morning, and go through the day with day with teachers and staff who certainly have the best interests of the students in both their minds and hearts. The administration is wonderful and always open to listening to comments or suggestions and helping out where they can. This is a great place to send your kids for many reasons!"
