Posted November 27, 2010

I graduated from St John's 8 years ago so I'm not actually a parent, but I had a great experience there and plan to send my own children there. The education is outstanding. I really got a step up for high school and even college. The teaching staff is phenomenal. Most of the teachers I had are still teaching there currently and have won many local awards for their teaching abilities. I think the most important thing I received at St John's are the morals and values I still follow and the ability to treat others with kindness and respect. I am thankful my parents placed me in this school!

We have looked at the local private schools in the area and have found St. Johns to not only be the best as far as grades but in price. I have found the teachers to be very concerned for our children's welfare and go above and beyond to help them do the best they can.

You can not go wrong with sending your children to St. Johns the Baptist Catholic School. The school staff and volunteers are wonderful with the children. And willing to provide as much help to the children as they may need. They have true family values and the children are considerate of eachother and the staff.

This wonderful school offers a family-oriented learning environment. The small class sizes and care and dedication of the teachers and staff create extremely positive conditions for the children to develop academically and spiritually, with an emphasis on community involvement. There is much interaction among all the students (PreK- 8th gr) and a true 'family experience' dominates.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
