St. John the Apostle Catholic School has been serving the East Hialeah Community since 1949 providing a safe and faith-filled education to all. St. John's accepts private and scholarship students.

My kids just started this year in this school. They came from public schools. academically they are at the same pace as public schools. Which was a relief for me. So far the staff is good. Teachers seem to care about their students. The negative side is there are no extra curriculum activities. Haven't seen computer class, spanish is not taught, no art class. pe is minimal. My kids are in elementary wish they had these classes then it would be perfect. Principal is good is available to talk. Overall a good school. Just wish they would offer more electives for the children. Class size can be a bit large for my taste average about 25 .

My daughter went to this school for 9 yrs and my 2 younger children went for 1 yr. and the experience was great. The Pre-K teachers were extremely loving and understanding and whenever my son would have an "accident", his teacher would never ridicule him and instead she would use that as a learning moment. Thank you Ms. Maurici, for all of your patience and love!! :)

My children went to St. John's, and now my grandchildren go there. The loving family atmosphere continues even in these difficult economic times. The investment in the children's future is worth it.

Cannot find a better school in all areas - love for children, educational success for all through the extra help provided by teachers during and after school when necessary. All you see is happy faces as you walk through the school.

St.John's is truly Hialeah's diamond, it is difficult to find that family atmosphere which St.John's has created over the years. It is an excellent school for all kids.

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.
