My daughter went to Preschool here and will be entering Kindergarten in September. She is five and is reading, doing basic math and her vocabulary is excellent. I had a great feeling about the school from the first year and I love being a part of the SJV family.

My son started preschool here, He is happy, calm and academically challenged. My daughter was transferred from public to 5th grade and she was academically behind. My daughter caught up with help from teachers, and assistand principal. She learned to study the correct way and had individualized attention. She is much happier here. It allows for closeness with teachers and a closeness within your own family.

The academic programs could never be matched by a public school. Parents are very committed. They have a wonderful music and art program and their sports teams are available to all!

My son started kindergarten at SJV and will graduate this June. I had a good feeling about St. John's the moment I walked in to register him for kindergarten and that feeling never left. St. John's was a wonderful experience for all of us and a wonderful place for my son to grow up in. The years flew by and it is now time for him to move on, but I am sad to be saying goodbye to St. John's.

My daughter came in kindergarten from a very sad experience at St. Cecelia's and she is now in 3rd grade, happy and doing very well. I have the wonderful administration and teachers to thank. Extracuricular activities are many with wonderful programs provided by our hardworking HSA.

I had my daughter in three schools so far and she is only in fourth grade. I think she will stay in st.Johns. It is a great school with an excellent staff. I have no complaints.

Thank You to St. John Vianney for giving my daughter the best of both worlds. The academic side and religion. I think this helps children have more of a conscience when they make choices.

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.
