I attended this school for middle school so I can only speak for the upperclassman teachers. This school has good solid academics. But it doesn't offer any AP or honors classes.

My daughter graduated from St. Joseph and was offered 2 scholarships for High School. She continues to do well in her High School. My son is currently attending and doing very well. The teachers and parents are great and I would highly recommend this school.

I am an 8th grader at St. Joseph's and I like the school overall, but there are a lot of cliques in the 8th grade. There is alot of unneccessary drama that goes on throughout the year. There are no afterschool activities i am interested in. The only activities that there really is for older kids is ...  Read more
