School is improving with time with more variety of extracirrcular activities offerred.
The school has a great program that has much parent involvment, but the academics are mediocre and the teachers really take preference to those students who are involved in the school athletic programs.
I academic programs are satisfactory. The extracurricular activities are decent. The parental involvement could be better. It would be nice to know that our children are getting a 'Catholic' education, and not merely going through the motions. ALso, the 'clique' issue needs to be addressed. I've known students with low self esteem due to these groups of children who feel that, due to the money their parents may have, that they are better than their peers.
I transfered my child to pope from another school in the area. This has been a tremendous move for us! The staff is very professional and the children at pope are very diciplined! What a great relief!
My experience with the faculty at pope john paul ii has been very postitive. my son was moved from a public school setting and was in need of help. pope john paul ii was definately the right move!
the classes at pope are fairly decent, they have ap and honors courses and the teachers will do anything to help a student in most cases. there are music and art classes. sports teams are mediocre, soccer and volleyball are very good, football fails to impress. pope has an excellent drama program. the drama students went to a competition and beat dreyfus (a school especially for the gifted in arts). i would not recommend this school to a student who is 'different.'
