We are very happy at SJV. The parent community is amazing. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The principal was new last year and she is so on top of everything. Looking forward to the new school year!

Hai. :0 I've been going to SJV for 8 years now, and it's been a good many years. The teachers our fair and try to understand our problems. Sometimes they're even funny! The holiday events are cool. I mean, I haven't been to any other schools, but I'm having fun in my class. It's a pretty stable schedule, so you probably won't see anything out of hte usual. I'm graduating next year though! On to high school with me. <3

My husband and I started looking for another alternative to education after being very disappointed with the public schools focus on testing and test scores as early as kindergarten. After much research Saint John Vianney is the school we chose. This school has a whole child approach to education taking into consideration a child's mind, heart, and physical awareness. It offers a curriculum which is child centered, academically challenging, and developmentally appropriate. They offer band, choir, baton, and several sports to every child that may wish to participate. Kindergarten includes art, science, fine motor skills lessons, music as well as reading, writing, and arithmetic. I can not say enough good things about this school, but the greatest gift to my family has been the change from much stress around school and education to a positive feeling about school and a new enjoyment in education. My kids love school!

My daughter has been at St. Johns since Kindergarten. We relocated to the area and were very lucky to find this school. The administration is teriffic and the teachers exceptional. The curriculum challenges the students but does not overwelm them. My daughter is in 6th grade and is reading at a high school level. Her math skills are equally as good. This says a lot for the teaching staff at Saint Johns. The children are well rounded as well as grounded. The size of the school as been a plus. There is one class per grade level and many of the kids go all the way through the 8th grade together. They are well prepared for High School and beyond. I can't say enough good thinks about this school!

I love having my child here at SJV. It was a great move for her from a public elementary school. The staff is great. I can see a difference so much in having her go to SJV.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
