17 Parent Reviews for St. Joseph Elementary School

The school has a good reputation and a beautiful campus, but don't let that fool you when considering elementary school for your child. Archaic teaching methods based on reward and punishment, strict and unkind staff and a serious lack of creativity make for a very poor learning experience.

We have four children with a bit of an age gap. The older two attended public school in Alameda and our experience was hit or miss, depending on the teacher that year. Mostly, it was a rough experience for both kids. Our younger two have attended SJES from Kindergarten through 4th grade now. We have ...  Read more

The principal is dedicated to doing what's best for the students, and the teachers all have credentials with many having masters degrees. My children love the sense of community, and they also enjoy the chess club, the sports, and the music program. The school has made a new commitment to improving ...  Read more

K - 4th grades are very strong. The middle school (6-8th grades) are in a shambles. These grades do still tend to fill up, with 34-36 kids per grade, primarily due to the even poorer quality of the local, public middle school. Hopefully the new principal can get the school's house in order.

St. Joe's offers solid opportunity for K-4 education. Good kids, caring, competent teaching staff. The upper grades have been plagued with staff turnover and suffer from lack of coherent science and math programs. The new principal may be able to solve these problems, but it will take time.

Great community school. Excellent teachers, and strong curriculum. The students are well behaved and respectful of their teachers, peers and parents. I am also impressed with the way the older students help out the younger students.

In our first year of attendance at St. Josephs, we have already been highly impressed with the overall balance of the curriculum and the school as a whole. There is a genuine sense of community that is felt throughout the school. I have been impressed with the service opportunities that the students ...  Read more

SJES currently provides a high quality Catholic education to some 260 students in grades K-8. The school has a tradition and history since 1881! The school is 'sistered' to St Joseph Notre Dame High School and both schools reside on a common secure and private campus. This is a community of students ...  Read more
