My wife attended Catholic schools through high school, while I attended schools in Plum. When my wife told me that she wanted to send our children to a Catholic school, I balked - public schools were good enough for me back when, and it was an extra expense. But, I finally agreed, and we visited several schools before deciding on St. John's - it was the best decision we've ever made for our children. The teachers all have different personalities, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are great teachers. They are great teachers because they care about each and every student - no one will fall through the cracks. If there was an issue, it was addressed through a note home, a phone call, a parent - teacher conference. There are some who might say that the facilities need updated, but I don't think so - the facilities look like those of a classic elementary school, and have everything an elementary school needs. We had 5 children in St. John's, and two have moved on to high school, which has been so much easier for them because of St. John's. The best thing parents can do for their children is to give them the best education possible - St. John's is that place.
Our daughter has been attending this school now for several years, and we couldn't be happier. She absolutely loves it. Small classes, great hands on attention. Feels like a family. St. John's is a great place for her to learn and grow in order to prepare for High school. The faculty is always there for questions, and extra help.
One of the best decisions I ever made was to enroll my son in St. John the Baptist School. Not only is he getting a great education in a loving atmosphere, we have also gained a whole new family, the St. John's family. The teachers truly love and respect the children. We could not be happier!!
As a current teacher (for 22 years) and parent...and an alumna of the school, I encourage any parent reading this to visit St. John the Baptist School. It is an extremely family oriented setting which includes a phenomenal staff of highly educated teachers who LOVE teaching here. We take great pride in our vocation of educating our students in academics, faith formation, arts, physical education and technology while partnering with parents to help them to grow to become the next generation of leaders in faith and in all aspects of life. This evidence is available when you visit and inquire about our standardized test scores. Your child is worth your time in visiting and inquiring about our school. We are working diligently to find ways to help parents reduce the tuition they pay. There are a number of great options for you. You won't find a more dedicated, hard-working staff anywhere! Come in and take a tour. You'll be very satisfied and pleased that you did! Submitted by a teacher
St. John the Baptist School has had, in the past 8-10 years, many, many students who graduated with honors and high honors...not to mention the great number of students who graduated high school as valedictorians and salutatorians. We're proud parents of children who consistently hold places on the high honor roll! We couldn't be more pleased. Our children love our school.
Excellent in every way. Could not be happier! Children of all abilities excel in our school!
This school has low academic standards. The teachers lack a strong educational background and experience in teaching. The current principal does not have the skills to perform the duties needed to run a strong and successful school. The parents are treated like outsiders not as part of a partnership to foster a child's success.
I am extremely satisfied and happy with St. John the Baptist School. Our students routinely score 2-3 levels above their current grade level on standardized tests. In addition, there is a wide range of extra curricular activities from sports to band.
