"We are grateful for all that st. Joseph's has done for us over the years"
"I have never experienced a more caring environment for my 3 children."
St. Joseph's School has been such a blessing to our family. As new residents to the Island we struggled with the decision of which school our children would attend.
From the moment we walked into the doors of St. Joseph's we felt like we belonged. Our boys have been loved and nurtured by the entire staff of teachers and support staff. I have never experienced a more caring environment for my 3 children.
One of my son's teachers actually had tears in her eyes when she told us how well our son has progressed academically.
When you come through the doors of St. Joseph's you know you have chosen a school where your child will learn and grow in a loving, spiritual environment.
"…we are thrilled to be sending our kids to a school that makes a difference!"
We have been at St. Joseph's Elementary school for almost 3 years. We love the family-like atmosphere and the fact that staff care so much about our three children! From the moment we first walked in the doors, we were impressed by the friendly, respectful behavior of the students.
The staff are welcoming and enthusiastic about their jobs. From the preschool, through the primary grades and up to the intermediate grades, there is a focus on solid education and Christian values. Our children are encouraged to develop and express their faith, not hide it.
Daily physical education, field trips, extra-curricular sports, up-to-date technology, parent involvement, music education, community involvement, and noon-hour clubs all provide the kids with a well-rounded sense of self-esteem and JOY in learning.
As a family, we are thrilled to be sending our kids to a school that makes a difference!
