We at St. Joseph School Believe...

  • Children are our future.
  • Catholic values should be incorporated into all curriculum areas and school activities.
  • Each child is unique with different learning styles.
  • Children need to be nurtured intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially.
  • Christian values taught in school and at home enhance a child's self-identity.
  • The parent is the primary teacher and a valued member of the school community.
  • Communication and mutual support between home and school are vital to student success.
  • Self-respect, personal dignity and a safe and positive learning environment are necessary in order for every student to reach their full potential.
  • Acquisition of critical thinking skills formulates independent thinkers.
  • Positive educational experiences increase a child's desire to become a life long learner.
  • Education is imperative in preparing the child to be a productive member of society.
  • Changing needs of students are met by a continuously evaluated curriculum.
