Community ratings & reviews

  • (4 years ago)

    I graduated from St John's 8 years ago so I'm not actually a parent but I had a great experience there and plan to send my own children there. The education is outstanding. I really got a step up for high school and even college. The teaching staff is phenomenal. Most of the teachers I had are still teaching there currently and have won many local awards for their teaching abilities. I think the most important thing I received at St John's are the morals and values I still follow and the ability to treat others with kindness and respect. I am thankful my parents placed me in this school!

    We have looked at the local private schools in the area and have found St. Johns to not only be the best as far as grades but in price. I have found the teachers to be very concerned for our children's welfare and go above and beyond to help them do the best they can.

    You can not go wrong with sending your children to St. Johns the Baptist Catholic School. The school staff and volunteers are wonderful with the children. And willing to provide as much help to the children as they may need. They have true family values and the children are considerate of eachother and the staff.

    This wonderful school offers a family-oriented learning environment. The small class sizes and care and dedication of the teachers and staff create extremely positive conditions for the children to develop academically and spiritually with an emphasis on community involvement. There is much interaction among all the students (PreK- 8th gr) and a true 'family experience' dominates.
