Saint Joseph Catholic School believes that every child has tremendous learning potential. We also know that children have different strengths and we. Teachers recognize when a child needs reinforcement. This reinforcement is provided in a variety of ways. Teachers will meet with students individually and in small groups throughout the day and/or after school. Teaching assistants are in the classrooms to provide support and reinforcement when needed.
Math Lab: The math lab is open Monday through Thursday before school. Students are encouraged to go to the math lab whenever possible. The teacher in charge of the math lab coordinates with the grade level teacher to develop individualized instruction and goals for each student. The math lab provides an opportunity to develop and reinforce math skills through manipulatives, games and hands on activities.
