This is one of the best schools on the planet. I have two children that started this year, one transferred into 3rd grade and my kindergartner just began. Their teachers interact with the parents at every opportunity. Ms. Hebert has made kindergarten a joy and it is great to see our daughter counting in Spanish (English is her native language) or saying "I want to study" and sitting down and opening up her book to read. Likewise, our 3rd grader has transformed from a child that got straight "A's" but did not want to work, to a student that is beginning to understand that school forms the basis for the rest of your life. Ms. Bencivenga has given that gentle push that he needed to put school first. SJP is phenomenal primarily because of Mrs. Howard. She is herself a former student, former teacher and now the Assistant Principal. To say Mrs. Howard is on top of things is an understatement. 2014/15 brought a new Principal, Mrs. Fatima deCarvalho-Gianni. Ms. Gianni is highly visible and seems to have a clear plan for SJP. If you value education, SJP is the school for you. If you value Catholic traditions and education, do not look anywhere else!

SJP has proven to be an excellent grammar school for our children. What's even more exciting are the opportunities in Middle School. SJP offers academic excellence and emphasizes faith and community service as equally important values. SJP teaches children to be good people as well as good students. The principal, Mrs. Pettus, brings a vibrancy and sincerity to the school that, coupled with her training and educational background at Columbia University, propel the school to new heights.

We live in a community with first rate public schools and I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else! The principal brings remarkable dedication and an astute understanding of the educational needs of her students. Her own Columbia Teachers College background, coupled with that of the pastor and the reading specialist, makes Saints John and Paul a top notch private school. Resources available to the students include smartboards in every classroom, a fully equipped and recently renovated library/media center, an amazing assortment of afterschool activities, community service opportunities, and a well trained and highly qualified staff. Faith is not only nurtured throughout the day, but is the foundation on which all academic experiences are based. A strong school community is greatly enriched by a strong and supportive parish family. And, did I mention the reasonable tuition? They do it best for a fraction what other private schools cost!

After thoroughly searching Catholic schools in the Westchester County area we landed on Sts. John & Paul in Larchmont. We are thrilled with our decision and our children are excelling in an environment that challenges them and makes learning fun and enjoyable. Sound Catholic values are infused in every aspect of daily life and learning which builds a solid foundation for the children. The leadership is dynamic and full of enthusiasm and energy. A wonderful Msgr., a young enthusiastic Priest and and incredibly talented Principal combined with a dedicated faculty create a model environment of Catholic education. Did I mention a PSPA that is truly welcoming and passionate about school and community. If you're interested in a Catholic education for your child, you simply must check out SJP in Larchmont!

I have been extremely pleased with the education my children have received in St. John and Paul. The religious morals that are instilled every day is important to raising good honest children. The new prinipal is a wonderful addition to the school!!!!

I'm in love with SJP, my son's first year is proving to be the best foundation for his elementary school years.

When I think of Saints John and Paul, I think of Community Spirit and Faith! What an Incredible school! Under great new leadership. Principal is energetic and understands all aspects of children's needs! Reading and writing skills are primary focus. Importance of team and good sportsmanship is focus in PE. Advanced math and language will be offered in 2010! You will not find a stronger, more caring, community anywhere. Check out their website at www.sjpschool.org - it proves their dedication to the children's futures!

What a great school under the leadership of an incredible and energetic new principal and supported by a pastor who 'gets it'. You will not find a stronger community anywhere nor will you children find a more secure and supportive place to get a values based education!

I love this school. Academic standards are higher than other local area schools. Iowa State Tests rank it above grade level to other schools nationally. Small school gives a great spiritual foundation. Specials, cultural enhancement, pep rally, Field Day, Talent Show and more put the fun factor off the charts. Only grammar school in Larchmont to offer Spanish. Sportsmanship and teamwork are key elements to P.E. Teachers are extraordinary. Parent involvement includes entire school community. What's not to love?
