Positive School Environment

To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.

St. Joseph School follows the positive reinforcement plan set by the MD PBIS Team. PBIS is the Positive Behavior Intervention System. The program places the focus on acknowledging the positive behavior that students are exhibiting in the classroom. We encourage this each day on the morning announcements, as well a frequently throughout the year as recognition is given.

Our motto, directly connects to our Mascot, states that we are “All Part of the P.A.C.K.” in that each day we:

  • Pray
  • Accept Responsibility
  • Cooperate
  • Keep Trying



All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through AdvancED. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates with a visit by an AdvancED External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools. These standards and benchmarks can be found at

AdvancED is a performance-based model that...

  • Adopts a balanced, systemic approach
  • Employs diagnostic tools
  • Uses standards, stakeholder feedback, student performance
  • Focuses on evaluating performance
