Saint Joseph Named "Four Star School"
For the fifth straight year, Saint Joseph Grade School has been named a "Four Star School" by the State of Indiana. SJGS is once again the only elementary school in South Bend to receive the honor. In order to achieve this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in two ISTEP-based categories. Additionally, a qualifying school must have earned an “A” in the state’s accountability system and be accredited by the Indiana Department of Education. Congratulations also to our other area Catholic school honorees: Saint Joseph High School, Marian High School, Queen of Peace School in Mishawaka, and Saint Pius X School in Granger. A total of 287 schools received the award throughout the state. See the Indiana DOE announcement for more info.
