We are what you have been looking for in a school system. All of our schools consistently receive a letter grade A on their AYP report cards. The St. Joseph Public Schools boast modern, safe, clean schools with the highest academic standards and student achievement. Our highly qualified staff encourages all students to succeed and excel.
Our high school graduates are accepted into the top U.S. colleges and universities across the nation and succeed because of their preparation and exposure to a wide variety of advanced placement college-level courses. Our math department is among the top rated in the state with many middle school students completing honors geometry by the end of eighth grade and high school students able to complete three college level AP math classes including college statistics and two years of calculus. Our science program features an in-district planetarium visited by all students K-6 each year. Writing is also stressed at all grade levels. Our high school annually receives honors for its newspaper and college writing classes. Fine arts opportunities abound with our superior and award-winning orchestras, bands, and choir programs. Visual arts and practical arts opportunities allow students a wide variety of exposure to lifelong learning experiences.
