Terrible, that is the only word that can describe our child's experience at St. John's. In the last 6 years, they have had three principal's. No leadership, therefore the teachers run the school. Terrible, learning enviroment. The teaching staff is divided into groups who refused to work together! Terrible bullying problem especially amongst the girls. Demand to see state test scores. Look from 2006 to 2012.
St. Johns had provided a home to our family. While certainly no school is perfect, I do think that the people here are generally good, and the attitudes are generally welcoming. As with all things, you get back what you put in. We have been warm and receptive and have received much warmth and reception back.
When we first started at St. John's we couldn't be happier with the staff and overall view of the school. After our daughters third year things started to go downhill. We really got a sense of how 'clicky' the school really was. If you did not attend the church or if you had anything negative to say you cast aside, as was our child cast aside. We remained here only long enough to find another private school that best suited our child's needs. Unfortunately we remained at this school until the sixth grade. The actual academic program at this school was nothing out of the ordinary. My true opinion is that if you like to be a follower then this is the school for you, but if you wish to be creative and express yourself, forget it. Parent
Wonderful school! I had a child in a public school in the Northwest school district and had very bad experiences. We switched to St. John The Baptist and couldn't be happier. The staff is great and really works hard with the children. I would definately recommend this school if you are considering a catholic education for your child.
