Read what parents are saying about St Joan Of Arc Elementary School
Disappointing we thought this school would be a better learning environment for our child. Instead not but problems from bully kids who have no fear of discipline sine the school refuses to do anything about it.

I left the school.withnmy child 2 yrs ago. My.child was being bullied so bad that we couldn't take it any more. We were told to call the parents of the bully. K I d and work it out that way. Doesn't work. Bullies parents denied their child did nothing wrong. So nothing gets solved. School should handle it because it happens when they are in the school building. My child was bullied by 7 kids We left and went to public school. Best decision ever. New school has zero tolerance on bullies and the school staff handles it. As it should be.

Ignore the parent in the March 12, 2011 Review. Clearly, they have a vendetta against the school or the staff or are just trash talking about the school. As an alum of the school who has since graduated from college with honors and a member of a National Honor Society, I can say that my foundational education at SJA is nothing less than the best! I mean this in the most objective way possible. Oh, and about the whole "curriculum was unchanged from 1970" thing. What a load. These kids are getting a top-notch Catholic education from faculty and staff who genuinely care for each child and their success. The curriculum is top-shelf. So is the technology. Nay-sayers are merely reaping what they have sowed. Put nothing into helping your kids succeed, don't expect the school to pick up the slack. School does not replace parental involvement! SJA has a very rigorous curriculum which I can say has prepared me and my classmates for high school and life! My parents even say that with all the tuition they have paid for grade school, high school, and college, SJA was the best choice they ever made! SJA is an excellent school and you will not regret sending your child/ren there!

We took out students out of St. Joan because the curriculum was unchanged from 1970 as well as the teaching staff and their methods. They stopped taking the MEAP test many years ago, because they felt it didn't best test their students. If you look at there last MEAP you will find failing grades! My children are now excelling at public school.

St. Joan of Arc continues to impress me. The teaching staff is very quick to respond to my emails with questions about curriculum, schedules, etc. The weekly parent note keeps all the information about current events at my fingertips. The students are constantly challenged to use computer technology along with and for their classwork and homework, and the teachers integrate library research with social science, history and even music class!
