"Math courses have always been my favorite, and at St Joes, they are excellent. The teachers here are so helpful and will be there for you if you need help."

The philosophy of the Mathematics Department is to enhance and expand on mathematical knowledge that students have gained throughout their education. We strive to offer a learning environment that fosters analytical thinking, logical reasoning, and problem-solving skills. The department and its faculty strive to inspire in each student an appreciation of mathematics and its practical real-world applications.
A brief explanation of our academic level rating system follows. Please note, students schedules are dynamic and may include varying levels of courses.
Course scheduling at St Joes is individualized and dynamic. Your student's curriculum will be challenging and appropriate to his or her learning needs. Our academic placements are tailored to each student's strengths. Students may progress through our curriculum as his or her mastery dictates allowing students to diversify their course levels.
At St Joseph High School, it is our belief that learning is a collaboration between parents, students, teachers, counselors, and administrators. Each has a part to play in a student's success. It is our hope, that by the time a student graduates, he or she has become a lifelong learner. This maturation process takes time to develop as the right balance is struck between adult supervision and intervention and a student's ownership for learning. Younger students naturally need more adult supervision and advocacy. But as a student matures, it is expected that he or she will take responsibility for his or her learning. In the end, if a student is to succeed in college, the student must be responsible and accountable for his or her education.
