Letter from School Leadership

Dear Parents and Caregivers:

I would like to personally thank you for your interest in St. Joseph School - Fullerton. It is truly an exciting time for our school community as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of our school. In 1869, a two-story schoolhouse was constructed on this property. While the original building no longer exists, we celebrate a history steeped in academic excellence.

In 2016, we were recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U. S. Department of Education. This award realizes all of the hard work that our faculty, staff, students, and families have accomplished over the years. It is the highest achievement a school can receive and is only given to the top half of one percent of schools in the United States. 

We strive to make St. Joseph’s more than just a school, but a home for all. We serve all ethnic and economic backgrounds and stand as a model for a diverse learning community.  Our dedicated and committed faculty helps each child reach his/her full academic potential by continuously reviewing data, seeking ways to encourage creativity, and promoting active and engaged learners with skills to succeed in today’s society. In addition to academics, we are a close knit community and we infuse the Catholic faith into every aspect of our school. 

As you walk through our halls we hope you feel at home and see yourself as a soon-to-be member of our school family. We want to share this wonderful journey with you as your child continues to grow educationally and spiritually.

Thank you again for considering St. Joseph School - Fullerton. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any needs, concerns, or questions. 

Blessings and Peace,


Kenneth J. Pipkin
Principal
