I would highly recommend this school for any family. My children attended SJRCS since Kindergarten and recently graduated. The school provides many opportunities for any child to learn. The technology available to them beats any school around all while they are learning values that are lacking in so many areas in today's society. Is the school perfect? No, but show me a school that is.
My daughter is a 6th grade student at SJRCS and is not only thriving academically but is growing into a confident, well-rounded person. The teachers at SJRCS are dedicated to their calling and have the top credentials in their field. They truly make our school great!
I sent my children to SJRCS and found the post from October 8th not true at all. The school is very challenging and tries to help all students learn to their ability. The teachers are great and the school community is like a family.
SJRCS has provided my children with a solid education within a nurturing, values based environment for the last 6 years. Like all schools there is room for improvement in some areas, but there is not another school in the Frederick area that I would prefer for my children to attend.
We are a military family new to the Frederick area, and have found SJRCS to be an exemplary school. Having just moved from Germany, we were anxious about finding the right educational environment for our younger children. After hearing glowing remarks about SJRCS, we found that the education and the people at the school measured up to its superlative reputation. The learning environment fosters the development personal excellence and academic achievement, while the faculty and staff could not have been more helpful in helping our family transition back to the States. Our kids (K and 3rd grade) have flourished at the school since August, and we have been favorably impressed with St. John's sense of community. Parents are actively involved in school activities of all kinds; the school views education as a collaborative enterprise between families and the faculty. To be able to send our kids to a place where negative and destructive social influences are minimized has been wonderfully reassuring. We've really felt as if the faculty and staff are as invested in our children's development as we are.
As an alumnus of St. John Regional, I credit my smooth transitions into high school and college to the foundations in education and character I gained from SJRCS. I am thankful for the opportunities for success SJRCS gave me as I pursued different interests throughout my nine years of school there. The students at SJRCS grew together to become a community, and I am happy to still keep in touch with many of them, whom I have known since grade school.
Very good curricular and teachers and staff are very kind and encouraging. Upper grades are sometimes mistaken with grouping because of previous academic misunderstandings. Very good programs and facilities. The children are difficult to get along with
My son has attended SJRCS since Kindergarten. The teachers are excellent, they really know my child, his strengths as well as his weaknesses and offer strategies for him to excel. There are classroom aides in each class to grade 4 which allows the teacher time to focus on teaching, not classroom administrative duties. The upper grades share an aide per grade level.The atmosphere at SJRCS is friendly and conducive to learning. Disciplinary measures are handled fairly and quickly. Parent involvement has increased in part due to the recommended 15 hrs. of service per family .The QUEST program offers enrichment opportunities as well as learning lunches. The best feature of SJRCS is that it educates the whole child, including his/her spirituality. I highly recommend it to any parent wishing a quality education for their children that focuses on their academic as well as moral development.
We have three children at St. John Regional Catholic School and we have been happy with their entire school experience. Our children are challenged academically in a loving environment. All three participate in school community activites and year round school related sports. The teaching staff is wonderful.
