6th, 7th and 8th GradeS








The middle school years are a time students face many challenges.  At St Joseph School, these challenges are met by providing students opportunities to explore and strengthen their abilities in academics, participate in extracurricular activities and partake in social and service experiences all in a nurturing environment where everyone has the opportunity to be involved.  Small classes enable teachers to really understand the strengths and abilities of their students while using  many multimedia approaches to learning that appeal to this age group, from Smartboards to iPads. 

Students are encouraged to participate in the many extracurricular activities, whether it be joining the school's soccer, basketball or pep squad teams, being a member of the cast or crew of our annual play production, or partaking in one of our numerous clubs, from band to writing for the school newspaper to being a member of our student council.  Students continue to bond and grow socially and spiritually with one another as they prepare school prayer services and Masses, attend biannual SJS middle school theme dinners and dances and they work together on service projects helping others in our parish, community and sometimes the world! 

SJS offers all these opportunities and more for our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students which enables students to be challenged in the classroom, develop their own likes and interests all while strengthening their self esteem giving them the tools they will need for high school and their future.
