    "My daughter has ADD, which is difficult enough at home without introducing her to the school environment. After an unsuccessful matriculation at a nearby twice-the-price Christian school whose administration could not be bothered to tune into her as an individual, SJA faculty took the time to work with us on a holistic approach to teaching and disciplining her. The team of teachers, guidance counselors, parents and principal took time to thoroughly tune into her needs. My daughter is flourishing so much better. It is truly a family atmosphere at SJA. They welcomed us (a bunch of non-Catholics!) into the family. I will forever be grateful to this school for helping to turn my daughter's behavior around. Principal is down-to-earth and wonderful to work with. She is a lovely nun who communicates with almost daily emails to ensure parents are apprised of details. She is dedicated to caring about SJA, all its students, and happenings within the diocese. The events and student offerings for extracurricular activities are varied and numerous. Even the staff knows how to have fun. If I could recommend one thing for improvement: more frequent website updates. SJA is a true gem of a school!"

    "St. Joan has some strong points. The classes are small. The community of kids is pretty tight. But, the teachers were not very impressive. My son had ADHD and the teachers were terribly uninformed and difficult to work with. They were generally not the easiest to deal with interpersonally and picked on my son and others with similar issues. They are not really equipped to handle learning issues adequately."

    "This is a great Catholic School. Teaches core subjects with certified teachers but also includes Christian values and traditions. Educates both body and mind with a family style atmosphere. Visit our school today and see how your children can benefit from smaller classes with a caring, nurturing staff."

    "The school has a small, family feel to it which is nice. A lot of parental involvement required, which we don't mind, and we are happy to see that the mandatory fundraising requirements are just rolled into tuition fo next year, if you choose to do so. Communication is sometimes a challenge with changes to school calendar, events, etc."

    "The only good thing about sja is that the classroom as small. It needs a new leadership and other activities for the children."
