    I am a proud alumna from SJNCS (class of '88). A tradition of excellence in academics and faith formation continues today which is why I chose to enroll my 3 children in SJNCS. They are nurtured challenged and grow in their faith every day. I know that my children will be beyond prepared for the challenges of high school.

    OMG!!! i am so proud to be a student of SJNCS.this school is fabulous.i am now an 8th grader.this is also an EXCELLENT school for Athletics.i participate in many sports such as volleyball basketball softball soccer and track and field.in my opinion SJN is the school known for both excellence in Catholic education and athletics.before every class begins the students and teacher pause and pray.every morning around 8 00 two 8th grades read announcements which include a special prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.SJNCS also has mass @8 30 twice a month which enhances in students' religion.here are also many clubs and activities to do after school. for example there is "Eco-Club" which we learn things to help the environment.there is also Academic Olympics(for 8th graders ONLY).this is an "Olympic" which tests your knowledge of a subject you choose to compete in...the subjects are history math P.E. speech art science religion Grammar.there is so much in this school to be involved in that there is not that many words to describe (literally there are not enough words to fit this little box)it is so sad for me to leave this school.it is my home and my family.I WILL MISS YOU SJN!!

    Incredibly amazing and extremely focused on excelling in education as well as fostering parental involvement. The programs faculty and staff all cater to the needs of the children while teaching independence and most importantly incorporating a strong sense of faith in everything.

    I went to SJN and I really liked the school.. I went there from prek3 to 8th grade and I loved it! The only thing is that you can notice the favorites of each teacher and this school is way to strict. The teachers get mad at every single little thing and they don't know how to have fun with the students responsibly. I am very sad that Mrs. Torrez left because I think she received to much bs and the staff didn't appreciate what am amazing and caring person she is and was for the school! personally I would go back to visit mrs. Torrez but how she left I don't find a reason to go back.. just to remember some memories that I wouldn't like to remember but overall this school did change my faith In a good way and if you are on a teachers good side then they do care about you

    Best Catholic PK-8 school in SW Miami. Great family environment outstanding faculty and staff with a very professional and dynamic principal. The school is sought after which has made enrollment to reach almost its maximum capacity and in turns it feels "tight." This is really the only negative thing that I can say about SJN. Yet at the same time the fact that the kids are close together also fosters the fantastic feel of family that you experience from the day one. Truly a great school all around faith formation academics extracurricular activities and clubs service projects and GREAT VALUES.

    SJNCS has been a wonderful environment for my children. As a parent of 3 children at the school I have seen my children thrive academically and spiritually. It has an amazing staff of dedicated faculty and the administration is always available to listen to a parent's needs and concerns. It is a place I feel comfortable and safe leaving my children where I know they will be well taken care of. The environment goes beyond the school and there is a sense of family and community when you walk the halls of SJNCS. I am proud to be part of the SJNCS family.

    This school gave me ulcers in my stomach everyday my son was there. This is supposed to be a Catholic school but it really was take all my money school. My son went for PK and it was my worst mistake I had ever done. The teacher from day one had an issue with my son. When I went to check up on the class every now and then the teacher was NEVER in the classroom. I was shocked!! I would see the teacher walking around the hallway while the teachers aide was trying to control a class of 20 by herself. The principle was very uninviting and very rude. I am so glad I was able to make the right choice by taking him out as soon as I did. The school is a fake!! Save your money for another school.

    A schools management is easly revealed by the courtesy & attention a person is given. St. John Neumanns office staff has proven to be unhospitable in every inquiry I have requested with enormous inconsiderable dissent. The motto for the school should be("The more money you give the more you get") As part of a Catholic education enduring kindness modesty & harmony toward humanity the students do not practice these religious teaching with each other. Concluding it is an unfriendly unhealthy environment which you will be paying money for.

    There is a pervasive unchristian environment at this school. Teachers scream at the children regularly even at lunch time. Children are mean to each other; bullying is rampant - teachers are more annoyed with the child who complains about being bullied than interested in stopping the bullying itself. Staff will smile to your face then talk behind your back. This is a very small school and the unchristian nasty attitude of some staff and teachers has taken over the environment here. Children learn by example....

    St. John Neumann school provides the individualized attention all children deserve. The faith based education that teachers provide is something rarely seen today. We are proud to be a family at this school.

    It is a small community with lots of quality and small town feel in a large city. The teachers are incredibly caring for the children and for what they teach!

    It is a fantastic school for my daughter who is deaf. She is the only deaf child in that school and the school made sure that she acquire education provides her resources for her needs and treat her equally like other children. That school has many proud parents who fully participate any activites at St. John Nuemann.
