Love SJVCS. My kids are so happy to go to school and I've noticed that they have learned more than their friends at the fundamental and Plato schools. I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a quality education in a nurturing environment.

Little school with fantastic academic expectations...because of its size, any problems are picked up quickly, addressed and remedied. The principal is young and enthusiastic which affects students, staff and families is a most positive way.

Alot more one on one with students than you would get in a public school

Excellent principal and teachers who care about their students.

A low student-teacher ratio ensures that no child is ever lft behind, while allowing all to excel at their own pace.

It's a small family oriented school on our beach. It's a wonderful community that prides itself on education, sports, art, music, P.E. , offering free after school programs like chess, hockey, cheer leading, etc. In the morning we all gather, parents, classes and teachers, at the flag pole and spend the first fifteen minutes of the day enjoying prayer, the pledge of allegiance, a patriotic song, a trivia tip of the day, and announcements, which is all done by the kids. It's very enjoyable to see the participation, and the first smiles of the day as the sun breaches the sky. The parent involvement excels other schools I have been at. We're a poor school that is constantly raising money to keep open. Our public beach retail community is wonderful for all their donations when we have fundraisers. The education and fun teachers make this a excellent choice. Thank you.

All 5 of my children have graduated from St. Johns and now my grandson is in the 2nd grade. The teachers are loving and caring and are genuinely concerned about your child's success. St. Johns will provide your children with a strong academic and faith filled education.

The school has done wonders for my grandson. As well as learning he is taking more pride in himself and is more respectful and interested in others. I'm proud to be his Nana.

St. John's is an integral part of our beach community. Parents are very involved (and encouraged to be) and the teachers and staff are excellent.

St. John Vianney Catholic School is am excellent school that offers a superior quality fundamental style education. They have excellent enrichment programs and is the only Middle School in Pinellas County to offer the International Baccalaurate Programme. If you are looking for a top notch school that really has a great community, St. John Vianney is the perfect place!

The environment is child centered and compassionate. The faculty is driven to excel at academics and the basic fundamentals of learning. The children are immersed in learning through all their senses. There is always something exciting happening in class that makes learning fun. We have moved to many cities throughout our career and have never felt such a welcoming community of families and teachers as we have felt at St. John's School on St Pete Beach.
