I was a student at this school from 1975-1978. It was a challenging experience based on past schools but it was a great education because the academic standards were quite high. I saw a comment here from a teacher that has claimed to be a science teacher there for the past 4 decades. I wonder if that ...  Read more

I came to this school in third grade. It was different for me, because I was used to an environment that was very open an friendly, but I was not shown any sign of welcome. Cliques were already formed, and I had to change who I was as a person to make a few friends. The math program in middle school ...  Read more

Having taught 5-8th grade science at St Joseph over a time frame of four decades I can say that it was a pleasure to go to school every day. The school atmosphere is one of unconditional acceptance. Discipline combined with love works to let the students know what is "fair" so that students, teachers, ...  Read more

My daughter loves going to school. The environment is wonderful. The staff does a great job nurturing the whole child in a way that can't be matched in public schools. The academics are appropriately challenging and the use of technology (including smart boards) is very current. I would definitely recommend ...  Read more

Proud parent of a St. Joe's student and parishoner. I would encourage anyone moving to central PA to consider this school for their children. Best in the area.

We have been a part of this wonderful school community for 7 years now and have been very happy. We have three kids enrolled currently and one more coming in next year. Have there been some bumps along the way? Sure there have, but no more than anywhere else. Teachers are dedicated and caring. Administration ...  Read more

I have two kids enrolled, what a wonderful school!! Coming from another catholic school in the area I must say what a difference great administration and teachers make. The school is well laid out, with lower school on the first and second floors and upper school on the third. I wish I would have sent ...  Read more

I have three children enrolled at SJS, and 2 who will be. The administration is remarkable, and the teachers as a whole are outstanding. Are there some that are better than others? Of course. Are some waiters better than others? We are fortunate to have a staff at SJS who are truly there for the ...  Read more

I am excited to have my 2 children enrolled at St Joseph's. At first I was concerned about the class size being large, but when you experience a typical day at St Joseph's the children are so well behaved and the teachers have such control in the classroom that it is clearly not an issue. St Joseph's ...  Read more
