St. John the Baptist is a great school. The principal, teachers and children are all so loving and welcoming.

St. John the Baptist School is a home away from home. The teachers and staff are as loving and caring as the parents themselves. our children are guided and nurtured through their daily lessons. When I walk through the door I can feel the schools motto alive and well...We Are All Family.

It is absolutely amazing the education, care, love, support, &guidance, the students receive at SJB. My daughter currently attends the school, and loves it. It really says something about a child when they love their teachers, and support staff & look forward to going everyday. The education & the after school programs speak for themselves, I believe they are the only school in Ludlow to offer sewing classes, my daughter absolutely loves it and will be returning each and every year for the after school program. The religious teaching and training is barre none the best there is!

Our daughters attend SJBS and we love it, what a difference this school makes. The educational enviroment they provide pushes students to work to the best of their ability, but is not overwhelming. The after school programs that are offered great from Mad Science to Art...

It stresses values along with education. The tachers make minimum pay but they truly care about the children and provide a fantastic program with minimum dollars......

WOW! Can't believe the overall difference between St. Johns and the Public School. Love that my children go to school together and their education has been above and beyond.

I am a student at this school, and this is very outstanding. My grades are all A's. The teachers are very supportive and teach us a lot of stuff. When I raise my hand to ask a question, my teacher always knows the answer. We learn a lot of things each day we come to school. The tuition for my school is a very great price for you. I am so glad I am at this school learning.

My daughter goes to SJBS. She has only been there a few months, and already i see a HUGE difference in her schoolwork, and her overall attitude. The teachers are wonderful--they really take an interest in every child there. It's wonderful to also have the students exposed to religion on a daily basis. I am SO GLAD i took my daughter out of public school here in town, to put her into St.John's. What a difference !. The best decision i have made. This school is SUPERB.

My daughter goes to SJBS, and we are thrilled with their approach to education. She went to preschool there as well. She began reading at the age of 5. SJBS is like a family, not just a school. The teachers and staff truly care about each student's progress.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
