I miss PJPII very much as does my daughter. She was set to graduate in 2 years. It was her sister's alma mater as well as her cousin. All the children in my family went to PJPII. It was a great school no school measures up to it.

My 2 kids have are attending this school. Also my sister and nephew graduated from this school. Is affordable, secure and have dedicated teachers and staff that helped not only the children but also the parents. The principal likes her school to be very discipline and the goal is to make kids grow with pride and respect. Love this school!

My boys moved to this school when St. George in Paterson closed down. It is by far, a superior school - offering a warm, loving atmosphere and an excellently advanced education. They love it at Pope John Paul and I hope they both get to graduate from there!

My daughter started Pope John Paul II School for Pre K-4 this year. The early learning program is great!! I can see the improved growth & develop in her learning skills overall. I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in private school education.

My Daughter has attended Pope John Paul For 5 Years. The education is great. The Disapline is even better. I have no problems with this school. She has a great education and she learns the word of God. Catholic School was the best for her. The principal knows every student by name which is great. We are very happy with the school.

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.
