"Out of all the Open Houses we attended, the Saint Joe's Open House is in a league of its own. The students at Saint Joe's have a maturity level beyond their years. The boys were so helpful as they greeted us by our car and led us in to the building, talking with us the entire way. They engaged our son in conversation about Saint Joe's and we feel that really sold the school to our son. We have been sending our two boys to public school but now feel that Saint Joe's will afford them more opportunities than any other school." Parent from Holy Trinity in Westfield

Go Take a Walk

Friday, March 30 was Take a Walk in the Park Day, so I did.  I really didn't have an excuse to not do so; the sun was shining, I had the day off, and I had no plans for the rest of the day.  So after a session with Abbe, my trainer at LifeTime Fitness, I made the short trip to Lake Surprise in Watchung Reservation. 

As I made my way around the lake, it was easy to see how ...

He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
