Hmm, tough question. Since St. Joseph the Carpenter School is a private school, it isn't required to release test scores and assessment data the way public schools are.

If you look at the Students and Faculty section of the school's profile you'll find some enrollment information. St. Joseph's has a 10:1 student teacher ratio and fairly stable enrollment from grades 1-8. The school's total enrollment is 257. All of this means that the school is pretty small and so, presumably classes sizes are small as well. You can find more enrollment information about the school at the National Center for Education Statistics website.

To give you a sense of the quality of education available at surrounding schools, I can tell you that Roselle Park Middle School received an Educational Quality Grade of 78 out of 100, that it has a total enrollment of 489 and a student teacher ratio of 14:1.

Wilday is also in Roselle, NJ and received an Education Quality Grade of 74 out of 100. It has a total enrollment of 355 students grades 6-8. The student to teacher ratio is the same as St. Joseph's at 10:1.

There are about [7 other schools] that service grades K-5 in Roselle and most of them score in the mid to high 70's for Education Quality. The schools with the highest scores in the area are Sherman (grades K-5) with a rating of 82 and Harrison with a rating of 84.

It looks like the average education quality for public schools in your area is on the high side, so that might be something to consider as you make your decision. Additionally it looks like St. Joseph's has a relatively small ratio of students to teachers, which is often a positive attribute for students who need more one-on-one attention from their teachers.

Hopefully this helps you a little bit. For more specific information, always feel free to call St. Joseph's directly at (908) 245-6560.
