Saint John the Baptist Catholic School (SJBCS) is located in Kalihi near Fort Shafter and Tripler Army Medical Center and about six miles from Hickam Air Force Base and Pearl Harbor. The school offers a very safe and welcoming school environment with a low student-teach classroom ratio to ensure attentive and individual attention. Students are challenged by a strong curriculum skills, leadership and technological experience. Choir and the performing arts, and a sports program in volleyball and basketball are among the diverse extra-curricular activities offered to nurture individual talents and to develop well-rounded students. The School Board and PTG Board are very active members of the school administration who strongly supports the school philosophy. Parents and guardians are heavily involved and engaged with the wide variety of school activities and engagements. The school is fully accredited from the WASC and WCEA.
I have 2 daughters. 1 graduated in 2009 and my youngest is currently attending SJBCS. What I like most about SJBCS is the feeling of oneness: I feel like everyone is a family. Everybody knows your name. the teachers are very approachable I didn't need to schedule an appointment if I needed to speak with any of the them. The parents are very supportive in all school initiatives. Whatever and Whenever the school needs help on parents are always ready to help. The students are friendly, helpfull and respectfull. I'm sure glad we made the right choice to enroll our daughters at SJBCS. Thank you and Keep up the good work!
I attended this school and graduated about two years ago, and the staff was very loving. They push the children to perserve and much more. Although the school is small, everyone is very close and warm-hearted.
Saint John the Baptist Catholic School is an excellent one! The tuiton is very affordable. ALl the students are like one big family. Even the sisters and teachers are too. They love playing with the kids.and they love taking pictures too., YOu can drop your kid(s) off at school as early because theres always a responsible teacher there. The sisters care so much for the students and the thing is the sisters isnt old!they are surprisingly young. well most of them. My son had his favorites there. sisster daisy,sister marlyou and sister merced. Ive heard there are new sisters there. And they are so nice. Especially sister aileen(sp?), sister aileen is always smiling and laughing.but once you get on her bad side its like woah. Actually all the teachers is like that. They treat everyone equeally. please recomend your kids at st.john the baptist catholic school
The teachers truly care about every single student. The staff is exceptional and often go the extra mile to help you with whatever you need. The hours are fantastic! You can drop your child off very early in the morning if you need to and pick up late. Someone trustworthy is always there. Affordable, loving, and constantly improving! This school is a true gem.
Excellent school! A great investment for your child's beginning foundation. Your child is not just a number and the staff takes good care of them. The curriculum is great and the follow up homework assignments fits well.
