  • Immaculate Conception St. Joseph School reviewed by a parent

    The co-principal is unqualified. This school is a disaster and dozens of families have fled, not to mention dozens of teachers who have been treated horribly (urge you to locate and then talk to these people). Such a poor retention of families and faculty, and so many of the remaining families are miserable but feel trapped because once you have multiple kids it's hard to get them to another school. Math teachers in middle school are awful and many forced to hire tutors. Worst decision ever to come to this nightmarish place! If it's hard to get in at the pre-school level, that's because so few good choices in the area, but watch your class of 46 dwindle to 16 once people flee from IC!
