St Joseph Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
St. Joseph has been home to our girls for 5 years. They began in the elementary years and are now in the middle school. The environment of love and caring is shared by the teachers and felt in the halls. With new leadership there has been a big focus on technology and investing in learning tools that will help the kids be successful. I highly recommend taking a look at St. Joe's at any grade level.
We love our school. The teachers work to make sure each child is successful. St. Joseph school is a Catholic school. The values taught there will be with my children their entire lives. The academics are challenging and above other schools. We are very happy here!
We love St. Joseph School! We have 2 children at St. Joe's and we could not be happier. Not only is it academically challenging, but we love that our faith and values we exhibit at home are reinforced at school. The small environment is also key to our children's success. Teachers are excellent at communicating with parents when there may be issues. Our youngest was having focus issues in class and the teacher was on it right away. She offered solutions to both my daughter and also offered advice at things my husband and I could do at home to help her. I love knowing that my children are challenged in the classroom and are challenged to be better people everyday in all areas of their life. St. Joe's is an excellent choice!
Awful awful awful... 5 and 6 tests a week, information shoved down kids throats with no enjoyment in learning. Bullying, favoritism, and they call themselves Catholics. 30 kids to one teacher, 15 minutes for lunch and recess in the back parking lot for another 15. They'll take your 10 grand and you'll do most of the educating at your own kitchen table. Books that are falling apart (cast offs from the public school) Tired lesson plans, and minimally educated teachers. Warm fuzzies at the elementary level, but by middle school, if you're actually looking for an education - go elsewhere!
My husband and I have advanced degrees and we are very happy with St. Joe's. Don't know if you live in the Mendhams but borough schools offer "0" enrichment for advanced students, township has a nice program. Most of these accolades - which several schools around here have - Blue Ribbon, School to Watch are baseless. Plenty have learned in a 1:31 ratio and are doing quite well. Grade inflation happens in all of the schools around here to please parents. St. Joe's is a very good school and does a fine job academically and creating good character.
