Good and caring teachers. Committed to a nurturing, but discipline environment for our children. I feel that there's a lot of preferential status to some other parents and children from both the teachers and the principal. But overall love the community feel of the school and satisfied with the academics so far.

St John's is, at heart, a great place for children to learn. The class sizes are small, parent involvement is high, and they have some great teachers that are committed to teaching kids in new and innovative ways. As a K-8th grade school, the advantages to having your child grow up with the same group of kids and essentially the same staff (turnover in teaching positions is very low) outweigh the disadvantages.

St. John the Baptist School is a K-8 Catholic school in an urban area. The student population is small and diverse. I really like the characteristics. The school does a great job in integrating technology and focusing heavily on math and science, primarily in the junior high grades. The students have opportunities to meet friends across the grade levels during school events such as Family Day and get to form close friendships with their peers due to one class per grade. One very exciting change of the physical plant coming this summer will be the modernization of the school library which will include a smaller computer lab and conference room. My husband and I are very pleased with the education our daughter has received for almost four years. We are also parishioners at the neighboring church and love the school-church connection and community.

SJB - El Cerrito, CA. Academically, so far so good. The teachers will challenge a student's learning ability. There is too much clique going on and favoritism w/ certain parents & principal. Teachers don't always want to be accountable, which transfers to students not being accountable. Little connection between school & church; at least 2 of the teaching staff are bullies, and not open to changing.

I couldn't be happier with this school. The teachers are great and there is a great community of involved parents, which I think is key to a child's success.

St. Johns is a great place for kids to learn and grow. The teachers are caring, the staff works together to make a strong learning environment and they really take the time to help the kids achieve their academic goals. My daughter really looks forward to going each day. I like that there is a focus on family participation -- it helps to build a good community.
