St. Joseph School - Fullerton students excel in our challenging academic environment and consistently score above the average on both Archdiocesan and national standardized testing. The school has annual winners in writing, mathematics, handwriting and art contests. Our students continue to be accepted by Catholic high schools throughout the Archdiocese and are rewarded for their excellence in academics with advanced course placements and academic scholarships, totaling more than $1,000,000 per class in recent years. For nearly 25 years, a Knott Scholarship winner has been among our graduating eighth graders.
Students in grades 2 through 8 complete standardized testing each year through Scantron. St. Joseph School students not only score well above the national average, their scores also improve as they move grade to grade.
Standardized test scores are not the only measure of a school’s quality. These tests are designed to assess an individual student’s performance compared to all students nationally. They do not compare a school’s quality to other schools. Many other factors should affect your decision about which school your child should attend, including: educational philosophy, curriculum quality, teacher credentials, class size, location, cost, availability of resources, discipline policy, opportunities for parental involvement and communications.
