St Joseph's Pre-School 4

Overall we have been very pleased with the school. The staff is so loving - our son started when he was just 2, so having an environment that not only teaches but nurtures is critical. There have been some challenges with staff turnover and over active kids but I imagine that is typical of nursery school. We are very involved and the community at-large is as well. If there is a problem it is addressed appropriately. Our son has learned so much in the last 1.5 years, it's amazing to witness!

School Director does not address problems. School has a major issue with bullying and blames the victims of the harrasment. Poor school. DO NOT SEND YOUR child here! Use 'Catholic' as a sales ploy

There has been a bit of a turnover in leadership in the past year, which created some concern a few months ago, but overall the school does very good things. The staff is very caring and responsive to parents and students. There has been more of an emphasis on a traditional curriculum, which I see as a plus! There is lots of time to run around and play on the large, grassy playground. The staff is very stable--barely any turnover in the 2 years we've been there. My child loves it there!

My Daughter just started going there in jan 2009 and I see how much she has grown in just a few months. The teachers are great and very loving to the children. She comes home everday telling me what they did and how much fun she had. She now knows all her numbers and alphabet and just about every nursery rhyme imaginable. She is always dancing and singing. They offer extra classes such as computer and dance and she is enrolled in both. She has become so proficient in computers. This school has been a blessing to us!

This school is just awful. We have had such a terrible experience there. It is a rigid environment and the children are treated like robots. Two year olds are spending time using workbooks and coloring in ditto pages. On parent night, a parent actually got up and shared examples of how well her child had learned to color in the lines! There is simply no creative outlet there and children have few opportunities to create and explore. It is the most stifling environment you can imagine.

I have one daughter in the school and one that graduated to kindergarten last year. They both had wonderful experiences. The school is responsive to parents' needs. My oldest was reading by the end of her pre-school year and is doing really well in kindergarten at a top notch school due to her good preparation by St. Josephs.
