I have been a teacher at St. Joseph/St. Robert School for twenty-nine years. I took ten years off from teaching full time when my children were young and substituted at some local schools. I truly believe that SJR is one of the finest schools in our area. SJR is dedicated to providing a quality education for children and has such a strong Catholic identity and commitment to our faith. My youngest daughter Shawn graduated from SJR and has such happy memories of her years at SJR. I am now teaching children of children I taught years ago. I feel fortunate to be teaching at a school that I love!
I have been involved with St. Joseph/St. Robert School for nineteen years; first as a parent, and for the past fourteen years, as a staff/faculty member. Over the years I have had the privilege of working with the most dedicated teachers, administrators, and staff possible. All three of my children were educated at SJR from Kindergarten through 8th grade and it was the best decision my husband and I have ever made. The education they were given at SJR provided an excellent framework for their future success in high school and college.
St. Joseph/St. Robert is a very special school. It is not only a school, a place for learning, but it is also a home in many ways. The administration, teachers, parents and students all have a connection and a bond that unites us – our Christian faith. Not only are academic subjects taught, but focus is also placed on developing deep and meaningful relationships. Fond and funny memories are held close to our hearts and are shared over a lifetime. The students use their intellects, talents and gifts to stretch themselves and become the best they can be. Most of all, SJR is a warm and welcoming home where students feel safe and loved.
St. Joseph/St. Robert School is truly a “gem” serving families from the Bucks Mont area. For students, SJR offers a rigorous curriculum with Jesus as the foundation and inspiration. Students are challenged by a dedicated team of caring, professional faculty who work collaboratively to instill core values in each lesson every day. For the community, SJR provides an invaluable resource. Through prayer and service, SJR students demonstrate “faith in action” throughout the year. By providing opportunities in a variety of disciplines, spiritual growth is a natural result. When a visitor enters through the doors of St. Joseph/St. Robert School, they are greeted warmly and welcomed. They know they are in a special place.
