Saint Joseph Grade School has once again been named a “Four-Star School” by the State of Indiana (for the year 2016-17). It is the seventh consecutive year that SJGS has received the honor. To receive a Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-F accountability system and have excellent ISTEP+ pass rates. “Receiving designation as a Four Star School signifies a pursuit of academic excellence among students, educators, and the administration,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I am honored to recognize these Four Star Schools for their hard work and dedication in preparing their students for a bright and prosperous future.” For more information regarding the Four Star School Award, please visit: To view a complete list of recognized schools, please visit:

Congratulations to our SJGS students, teachers, staff, and parents for their hard work!
