    "The school has a reputation of being lax when it comes to the issue of discipline, especially the current principal and administration. It is well known, even at the Diocesan level that there is not strong leadership at the school. I have found from personal experience that my children received a better education and much more Christ-like attitude at the local public school system than while attending St Joan."

    "St. Joan is an awesome school with caring, committed teachers who teach not only the basics but life lessons. They teach good habits such as solid study skills to help your child flourish in any high school environment. Class sizes are small and there really is a family feel to the school. There are many evening activities to bring the whole school community together. If you want your child to feel nurtured and not lost, have them attend St. Joan."

    "A very underwhelming and poorly funded school compared to the Nearby Derry Township school which is one of the best schools in the state. Do your child a favor and put them in a school where they have a chance better chance to be successful in life."

    "Not a good school if you want your precious child to compete in the modern world instead of the "Catholic " world of religious fundamentalism and the 18th Century values."

    "If you're looking for a Christian education for your child, this is not the place. Your child would be more likely to have a teacher who has a relationship with Jesus by sending them to public schools in Hershey. Additionally, St. Joan inadequately prepares students academically. We know many families who have suffered a great deal by sending their children to St. Joan, especially regarding the vast bullying issues (often perpetuated by the teachers and administration). While we have a great appreciation for St. Joan of Arc Church, this school is the last place we would send our children. (Aside: It might be worth noting that several negative reviews have been removed from this site, with a stream of glowing reviews posted in the week immediately following the date the original negative reviews were posted. Is it possible that the administration is "reporting" the negative reviews and then planting positive reviews in their place to keep enrollment and funding up? It wouldn't surprise me if this is the case as the administration generally goes to great lengths to cover up any problems that arise within the school's walls.)"
