Love this school. My child is in PK-4 with the best teacher EVER!! So far, we couldn't be happier.
St. John Neumann School is more than just a school. It is a second home and we feel it is also part of our extended family. SJN is amazing for its strong and solid academics, as well as it's incredibly loving, nurturing and caring teachers, staff and administration. The faith formation the children receive is by far one of the most important things to us as a family. From the early grades where children reaffirm their belief that we are all part of God's creation to the older grades where children are comfortable and confident enough in their faith life to stand up for what they believe. SJN supports our role as parents and we are thrilled to be a part of this community.
St John Neumann Catholic School (SJNCS) is a small school in Kendall. Not many people know about it since is inside a very nice neighborhood, kind of like a hidden treasure. It has been a blessing for my three children to attend SJNCS. Two of my children are now in a Magnet High School where they took Honor classes and AP courses since Freshman year. Some of their teachers have asked me if they were in a gifted program before high school and I always say "yes". In SJNCS children are taught like in any public school gifted program. My third child still in SJNCS and she is thriving academically and learning to love God above all. It is great to have school that not only teaches about religion but at the same time academically is superior to other Catholic Schools. The proof is in the Academic Olympics where SJNCS comes out on top year after year. The success has to do with the wonderful teachers that love what they do and it shows when the kids enjoy going to school to learn.
St. John Neumann School students continue to have outstanding performance on national standardize tests as well as exceptionally high percentage of students entering honors programs in the high school of their choice.
Our daughter has been in St. John Newman since PK4 and now she is in 4th grade. We love the school because she has gained a strong Catholic background, we also have seen here achieve many goals in her personal and academic life. Staff is always there to answer questions and help with any issue going on. Our daughter has made great friends for life and has always told us she loves her school. The school goes out of its way to have all parents involved in its activities and events. I would recommend this school to anyone without a doubt.
The BEST decision I've made for my children! Faculty and staff are caring and loving. With high academic standards and strong Catholic teachings, my children are blossoming!
This is the first year my children have attended St. John Neumann coming from the public school system and we have been blessed to find such a caring, nurturing environment. It has been truly outstanding and beyond words the best decision my wife and I have made! St. John Neumann School has challenged and enriched my children with an amazing zeal for learning. The school has a very well rounded curriculum focusing on academics, religion and community connection. I have been witness to not only the motivation but the mastery of very advanced level subject matter with both of my sons. The Administration and Staff show genuine, authentic care and concern for the children, their well-being and growth. It is a parish school community that I highly recommend and wish other families would experience. We are grateful and proud St. John Neumann Eagles!
This is simply an amazing school that seems to have established the perfect blend of family-friendly atmosphere with academic excellence. The school staff develops the children academically, morally, ethically and socially to such a degree that it makes their middle and high school transition smooth and practically painless.
St John Neumann is a wonderful school. The school not only excels academically but it teaches our kids good morals and values. It being a small school, it is a community that is like a family. When my daughter got diagnosed with cancer at age 7 in the second grade, the school staff and school families moved mountains for our family during this very difficult time. Immediately they had daily meal deliveries set up for us. The teachers would come to the hospital and home to help my daughter with her school work and tried their best to always include her in all the activities so she felt part of the class even though she was unable to attend class during her treatment. Those are just a few examples of the amazing gestures St John Neumann school provided for us. My kids love attending the school and they feel loved and safe. That means the world to us and would not trade it for any other school.
WE have four children, and all of them have attended SJN. We have nothing but great experiences at the school. Our oldest daughter attended SAS and graduated high school with an AA. Our second son is in high school now taking all honor courses. SJN prepared both of them for high school and then some. We currently have two other children at the school. We recommend this little school to everyone.
Enjoy the family environment and the trust you feel in teachers to care for your kids. Great opportunity for kids to flourish and achieve success since smaller school and can tailor educational experience.
St John Neumann is an example of what our nation's educational system should be. The overall staff are like family and treat your children as if they were their own. Excellent communication between parent and teacher and excellent teacher/student ratio, etc. Old adage "it takes a village to raise a child" is a way of life at this school. The staff not only care about what you're children is learning but also encourages a general well being.
Love this school!! Our son is in the Pre-K3 at SJNCS and we couldn't be happier. Great teachers and parents make the school what it is. Parents and staff are involved in school activities and active in the church. We trust our children with the staff at SJNCS. They are truly loved there.
Great education in a caring environment! St. John Neumann school helps children to develop skills that make learning fun. Many programs available help each child reach their fullest potential. Very active family involvement.
Saint John Neumann is an excellent school with caring teachers, parents, and administrators. We are very happy with the education that our children receive both academically and religious based.
St. John Neumann Catholic School has been a wonderful place for my children to grow. I say place, and not school, because it is more than a school. Although my children are challenged academically, they have grown in their faith, and as young people more. My son is now graduating from high school and SJN really prepared him for high school. He is going to college with 50 dual-enrollment credits, and this is because the teachers and staff at SJN pushed him to be a better student. But more importantly, his high school teachers will say that he is a better young man because of the formation of his faith.
Amazing! It is well-rounded and offers various areas of after-school enhancement. The families are friendly and loving and we are all proud to have our children in a Christ-filled environment. Go Eagles!
St. John Neumann Catholic School is the best decision I've made for my children. The school is very small and the community is amazing. The teachers and staff are very caring and nurturing and offer a well-rounded education. The students grow academically, spiritually and as model citizens. Parent involvement is very highly encouraged, which fosters a sense of community and everyone working together for the success of the child.
I love this school, the teachers & staff. We like is the good teaching and education to give children
I absolutely love this school! I love that it is a small school with one class per grade and almost everyone know each other. I also like the feel of community in the school and how parents are included in almost all school events so I am able to volunteer on a regular basis. Wouldn't change it for anything!
