St. Joseph School voted #1 in DuPage County

November 4, 2020

St. Joseph School was recently voted the “Finest” in DuPage County in Suburban Life’s Reader’s Choice contest in the Grade School and Preschool categories.  This marks the third year in a row that St. Joseph Preschool has earned top rank, and the second year as top Grade School, a category that was new in 2019. The contest is run annually by Suburban Life, a local newspaper for Downers Grove and the western Chicago suburbs.

“We sincerely appreciate the support of our school community for voting us the top Grade School and Preschool again this year,” said Rita Stasi, Principal of St. Joseph School.

This annual contest allows Suburban Life readers and the community the chance to recognize the best businesses and organizations in Cook and DuPage Counties. The contest is held online annually and voters may cast their votes once per day during a specific period of time.

“We pride ourselves on providing excellence in Catholic education in Downers Grove for over 110 years. Our school community is like a family, a second home, to our students and staff. They are the reason we are voted number one in DuPage County!” added Rita Stasi.
