St. John Bosco School was a great school, but was sadly shut down in 2010.

Posted May 31, 2008

Our oldest child started in the preschool program here five years ago. We currently have children in 2nd Grade and Kindergarten. We could not be more pleased with the teachers they have had. Both children were nurtured out of their shells by loving and caring teachers. They can both read well and get better each year at class participation. The school environment is family friendly, and the kids look after each other and the younger sibilings - future SJB Bulldogs! Both our computer and music labs have top notch teachers and equipment. There are many family oriented events, and its nice to know so many wonderful families within our school.

We have 1 child in SJB and all three of our children will be there next year! What a great school. The school is very family focused. We couldn't be happier with the education our children are receiving at SJB. The teachers and staff are so friendly. It is such a warm enviroment. Truly a wonderful school.

Our children have attended SJB since kindergarten and are now in 3rd and 5th grade. We couldn't be happier with our decision to have our children attend such a wonderful school. They not only receive a top notch education but are being nurtured by some of the most outstanding teachers and school personnel that one could only wish for their children. We attribute so many wonderful things to the experiences our children and our family have gained from belonging to this remarkable 'family-focused' school and parish. Our lives are truly blessed by being part of this trmendous community of people.

We enrolled our daughter in SJB almost 4 years ago with the pre-k program. She has excelled so much being in such a close knit environment -- all students look out for each other and they know all names - from pre-k -8th! The new programs planned for coming years is very exciting -We are proud parents of SJB!

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.
