St John has a challenging academic program with small class sizes. The teachers are motivated to help each and every student excel. The principal wants only the best for his staff and students and goes the extra mile to make sure that St. John provides an excellent education to every student that passes through its doors. Any student that goes to St. John knows that the education he/she receives there will prepare him/her to go to any top high school. The principal, teachers and staff care about the students and treat them like an extension of their own families because they really believe that the St. John School is a family, their family. The principal encourages parent involvement and both he and his staff have an open door policy for any concerns the parents may have.

All three of my children attended Saint John School Pre K through 8th grade and they excelled in High School (Each were inducted into the National Honor Society at Xavier - Mercy). Now, two are off to the colleges of their choice and one is continuing to excel in High School..... Thank you Saint John School!

We are glad we send our children to St. John School. Our youngest has learned far, far more at St. John kindergarten than our oldest did at a public kindergarten. Yes, St. John does not have a playground or cafeteria and gym class can be cancelled if it is too cold or rainy. So what? If you want a school with fancy facilities, chose a public school, just be ready for sub-par academics and poor discipline. If high academic standards and a respectful, polite student body are important to you, chose St. John.

I have had the pleasure of having both of my children attend St. John School. They have since graduated and have had great success accademically and socially in high school. We chose this school because they reinforce the christian values my husband and I teach at home. When we looked at the different schools in Middletown we were fully aware of the lack of a gym or cafeteria, and felt they were not an essential part of our children's learning process. We also chose this schools because of the strict enforcement of all school rules. Many parents who send their children to St. John school have chosen it because of the same reasons. Also, if the principal does not support the teachers, then what kind of control will they have in their classrooms? I would highly recommend St. John school to any parent who values the schools mission and commitments.

The other parent obviously had a bad experience. It is true that the facilities are limited, but this is due to the incredibly tight budget the school operates on. A parish center will be built soon to address those issues. In the meantime, the children receive a great education and an incredible amount of compassion. I have never, in the five years my child has attended this school, seen anything less. Extra-curricular activities for lower grades--like what? Start a scouting troop, if you want one. Go to the public schools--you'll still have to put your child on town little league teams. I don't know what this parent is looking for. We are very happy with St. John School--and so is our child.

We found the atmosphere to be hypocritical. This is suppose to be a Christian environment,showing compassion, yet no compassion towards the children. Too strict,inflexible. No extra-curricular activities for the lower grades, no playground, no cafeteria to help the children have a change of scenery. Weekly gym class 60% of the time cancelled. Principal is active, however, backs up Teachers regardless of situation.
