    "Security is huge! You will find teachers on traffic and yard duty before and after school as well as cameras. You will find kids will be stopped from walking off campus without an adult. You will find student led crossing guards, raising of the flag, year books, Christmas programs, multiple onsite and offsite field trips, morning assembly, pledge of allegiance, AM devotion, community giveback and buddies (to name a few). The school could improve by incorporating technology to provide an example to students of how computers are part of our every day. I would like to see a desire to positively evaluate programs, filter the feedback, set goals and spend money. The Principal believes in the good of all children. She has an open door policy, responds to email and sends an eblast from her desk every week. It is easy to point the finger at leadership, but this is what makes her a strong leader. She has 40 years of experience and has a passion for the school, children, faculty and parents. This is an affordable private school that is well worth a GREAT rating!"

    "This is a school with a strong parent community. The teacher quality is also improving with new teachers hired this year."

    "I am a parent of a student here and it appalls me that some of the recent reviews are not positive. It seems after reading that it is from a select few that may have gripes that either are unreasonable or may be part of a situation the school cannot discuss due to HR concerns. Parents need to take more responsibility to work to fix the issues within their limitations. Staff and Teachers have far more to worry about in todays age such as school shooting and the students emotional wellness that is not being addressed by parents that either have very busy schedules or are disengaged. Let's not forget that teaching and administrating of children is a calling and its not done for monetary gain. If you are that disappointed then we all know where the door is. Don't kid yourself though the grass is not always greener. The staff at St. Joseph genuinely care and have the best for your children in mind. Not every day is full of sunshine and rainbows and you wont always get your way but at the end of the day your children are getting quality Catholic education and their values and safety are always a top priority."

    "There are committed teachers and parents here who really try to make a difference but it's not enough to overcome a dilapidated school facility, a few sub-par teachers and a principal who is a poor leader and communicator. The principal does not listen to the PTG co-Presidents or the School Board President's concerns at all. I'm not even sure why we have them or why they bother. The principal and the parish Father make decisions in a vacuum. Parent feedback is neither solicited nor welcome. Feedback given is rarely if ever acted upon. Just a fake "I'm taking care of it" and then no follow up. My child is not getting anything close to the edicational excellence that the school promises. More time is spent chiding parents to go to church, give alms and use the rhythm method (ridiculous!) than focusing on creating an excellent faith-based education. Many families show up so excited to attend this school and then leave bitterly disappointed by the principal's lack of leadership in addressing problems and driving improvements. We are unfortunately one of those families."

    "St. Joseph school is in crisis. While there are several outstanding, dedicated teachers and parents at this school, there is a complete lack of leadership, communication, transparency & proactivness from the principal. The result has been devastating. We've seen very enthusiastic parents & teachers be completely demoralized. We've seen bullying issues not be properly addressed. We've seen teacher performance issues allowed to continue across multiple classes resulting in kids who have been not been properly taught to grade level. Parents have spent hours constructively organizing and trying to have their issues addressed while the principal takes it as an affront and does nothing. The principal would only like to address any concerns you might have one on one so that she can smile, nod and then dismiss them. Several families who have decent options are leaving and others who don't are unhappy and just trying to get through. It's a total shame and it all boils down to leadership and competence at the top."
