    I was very happy with my experience at St. John's Jesuit. The education of the whole person is unparalleled in the Toledo area from the academics and athletics to the fine arts and Christian service. SJJ is truly a brotherhood where everybody is cared for and supported no matter what your interests are.

    Saint John's does teach a few good values making it really feel like a brotherhood and one could thrive very well here... depending on what teachers you have. Every year they hire in sub-par brand new teachers. Most of whom are not very good at their job. Which I'm not knocking the teachers but a private high-school with tuition like SJJ's - You would think they would be able to find more capable employees. During my Junior year English class alone we had four different teachers. The few who have been teaching there for awhile happen to be magnificent teachers. Even they complain about the dysfunctional administration and overall disorganization of how the school runs. While I've met some great people here I would recommend a public school over saint John's. Or a school who doesn't set up flat screens and ping pong tables for the single week 8th graders happen to visit. It is not all fun and games and this school's education is not worth the tuition.

    I have two sons attending St. John's Jesuit. My opinion of this schools academics spiritual culture teaching staff and administration is nothing short of outstanding. I could not be more pleased with the education provided at SJJ.

    St. Johns is a wonderful school. Academically excellent. The staff in the academy is excellent and the Principle is kind and very caring. As I read some of the reviews here I wondered what school they were talking about! Academic challenge is good for your brain. Yes it is a financial strain but remember this there is only one thing you can give your children that cannot be stolen cannot be broken and that is their education. I would love to see more Catholic orthodoxy. It used to be that Catholic schools were clearly Catholic. Parents understood that if you sent your child to a Catholic school they would get a Catholic education. Non Catholic families that sent their children to Catholic schools made that choice knowing their children would be exposed the Catholic faith in books classes stories church prayer and they had no problem with that. Now Catholic schools water down the Catholicsim =( If I sent my child to a Jewish/Muslim/Baptist/Greek orthodox I would expect them to be exposed to those faiths. How could you not know a school was Catholic when it was named SAINT Johns =) Good school good staff good place to be a young man.

    The school is not recommended because it lets you give most of you money away to the SJJ community or Christian service departments.

    I wanted to return to school but the school days are long because they started early at the beginning and ended very late for the 2013-2014 school year. They should reduce the number of school days so the students can get good scores on homework quizzes tests projects etc. Otherwise I will leave that nasty school. Thank you!

    I did not know that St. John's Jesuit High School and Academy was a Roman Catholic school also not many people in school are catholic they should not allow the non catholic students to attend churches yet they are still letting everyone going to church. To be very honest the instructors at the theology department are very evil completing at least 45 hours of community service for underclassmen and getting a senior project at upperclassmen. They should waive the senior project and the service hours spent. In addition their school ACT is below 6-7 other schools. How disappointing!

    This school is not a good school. Longer school hours and days than last year. It has very hard courses teachers don't describe the concepts well very uneducated staffers in the A+ learning center that lead to student failures. House group is awful. Student bullying and harassment even if student does not do anything wrong. Food fights in cafeteria. Hallway jams overcrowded. No ethical sportsmanship. Other bad as described. Looking forward to going St. Francis next year.

    As a parent responbility in sending my son to a better more enriched catholic high school providing a excellent and qualified education. This school has an intention to be caring more about the money than the education and to the gentleman itself. The tuition is increasing annually from year to year for example from 2009 to 2012 there was an annual forecast increase of 4-5% (about $500 more than the previous years ahead). After paying more and more money to go St. John's. As of late 2011 they sponsor an iPad program that helps with academic purposes and storing textbooks but it hindered the students as they played games used social networks and continued to use hard copy textbooks not on the iPads. My son knows the fact that iPads in St. John's is necessarily a way to intimidate or deceivingly send inappropriate information to others or go off task in specific info. I don't recommend St. John's Jesuit High School and Academy to anyone for its expense of money loss of foundation and undesirable care (Ex. My son bullied in house group). It is a terrible school to go unless you want to pay more money for the school or to become uneducated.

    This school is terrible. The academy principle is awful he assumes on what he sees and you know what happens when you assume also he is barely at school. There is only one or two cool teachers that care about the students. The teachers care about the money not the kids. I only sent my son there for one year and would advise anyone not to send their child there. The worst $10 000 I have ever spent.

    I pulled my kid out of a TPS & have found this school to be amazing! His education has done a 180 since becoming a Titan. He loves coming to school everyday has made many friends is very involved and this school is blessed with diversity and acceptance of other races.

    This school is great. It challenges students in academics athletics and becoming a man for others. I would highly recommened this school for anyone.

    I have two sons at SJJ it is a sacrifice to send them but I wouldn't change a thing. The teachers and curriculum are spectacular. These boys are being taught how to become men for others. The college prep program will help them to succeed in post education. The athletic program is exceptional. There are numerous clubs and activities besides athletics. The school is well organized and functions great on the administration level. The enrollment is such that each boy becomes known and is given individual attention. It is worth every penny. These boys will be more than prepared to go to college. I highly recommend making the sacrifice.

    This is a terrific school; I could go on and on about how great it is. The teachers are involved the students want to learn. The atmosphere is exciting yet reflective. The extra curricular activities number in the dozens and all give truly extraordinary opportunities to participate (trips out of town to compete trips out of the country to do service work etc). Please be prepared though to pay quite a bit for all extras clubs retreats books most sports.
