Our school community recognizes and embraces the cultural, social, economic and religious differences that exist in our school and in the world. Our student body is approximately 24% minority and 40% non-Catholic. We strive to instill in each child an inherent self-worth and respect for all people. We welcome children from all faiths desiring a Christ-based education. Our small size, usually around 70 students, provides a warm family atmosphere that nurtures students as they grow academically, socially and spiritually.
The faculty and staff of Saint John Catholic School recognize the uniqueness of each child, acknowledging that children learn in different ways and at a different pace. Therefore, our curriculum includes a variety of learning levels and techniques, teaching basic skills as well as critical thinking and problem solving. We accept and support the needs of individual students and strive to meet these needs whenever possible. Our goal is to encourage every student to do his or her best to develop their God given abilities in a caring, supportive and non-competitive environment.
