This school was a complete disaster for my kids. My son scored in the gifted range on the Wechsler Intelligence test and is a straight A student. He was repeatedly abused by the teachers and principal there. In second grade, his teacher "forced" him to eat his carrots at lunch. In the fourth grade, the teacher had a scornful attitude towards him from the get-go and regularly humiliated him in front of the entire class by saying things like "I know you think you know a lot but you really don't." She also sent him to the principal's office for questioning her grading. The principal did nothing to help other than recommend that my son be on medications. When I tried to meet with the priest, he conveniently avoided me. Be the judge yourself: is this an appropriate way to treat an extremely intelligent, extremely sensitive little boy who has no behavioral issues whatsoever? Is this the way that supposedly God-loving Catholics should act? If you are considering this school, learn from our bad experiences and run! Run quickly!

I have to laugh at the one star review. Hopefully the school they have chosen teaches their children to spell better than they do. Also talk about elitist...the faculty may not all be "Catholic" but they are good Christians that teach our Catholic values. Perhaps some people need to learn about tolerance and love before they write nasty reviews. No school is perfect, but St. John's is a very loving place with wonderful academics. I wouldn't dream of sending my children anywhere else.

SJE is a wonderful school for our children. Our 3 children's education is very important to us. We are not a family of lots of money, but we continue to send our children to the school because of the low teacher/student ratio, the religion studies, the community feel, all the specials offered (art, P.E., music, spanish), the sports, band, and the overall caring of the faculty. The teachers challenge the students to their fullest ability.

We are so happy with St. John's. After several disappointing years at the local charter school we switched to St. John's in the hopes of getting a great education for our child--I wish we had started with St. John's from the beginning. The teachers and staff are wonderful. My child is finally getting the challenge she needs and she now absolutely loves school. Her ITBS scores, as well as those of her classmates and school mates, are exceptional, proving that the teachers are doing a great job educating our children. I'm so glad to have such a wonderful school in Loveland. I cannot recommend them enough.

Although we were happy having our 3 children at SJ the price has gone up considerably ($10,000 for our 3 kids not including uniforms). The church support has gone down and scholarships are not available. The only people that can afford to send their kids here either work for the school or make a very large salary.

This is the best school in Northern Colorado! We are both university instructors - and we expect excellence in our child's school. We have found it in St. John's. Rigorous academics, focus on the family, emphasis on community's simply the best!

This school is largely an elitist school without the academic rigor that one would expect with the price tag. We have chosen to have our children attend Ridgeview Classical Schools because it has what used to be considered a great Catholic Education. When Saint John's retruns to that same rigor we may consider sending our children to this school. Saint John's is a Catholic School with non catholics on the faculty.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
